View Full Version : First 3d shoot.

05-22-2011, 07:46 AM
So i went to my first 3d shoot yesterday and as far as i could tell, I had the only Martin on the field. I shot a 318/444 and was satisfied since it was my first time being out there. Now here comes the crazy part. Since ive been shooting my Martin, ive thought as it as a "loud" bow. For a while when shooting it sounds like a screen door slamming with the spring pulling the door shut. While out shooting I had a guy from colorado springs who is a product tester listen to as I shot for excess noise actually complimented me on how quiet my bow is. The only things i have is a 10 inch stab(unknown brand) limbsaver limb rubbers, and some string leeches. I guess I'm not as worries as i should be since i was shooting against a brand new bowtech something or another(guy just set it up that night prior to the shoot). So Im going to stick with my Martin till a) it breaks completely and is not fixable, or b) i find a reason to replace it at all.

Congrats on the shoot bigred, that's one thing I have never done, but always thought about trying. Not many shoots in this area though, so I never pursued it much.

Congrats on your first 3D. Warning though. Once you get the hang of things you may become addicted.

Yes, lots of people think their bow is noisy and then find out it's not near as loud as they thought. Personally, I worry about other things than noise.

Good shooting for the first time. You'll get better at it, too, so shoot often. It's great to make all those new friends. And take note that a bow is always louder when you are shooting it. Maybe has something to do with being anal, but more often than not it's just because your ears are closer to the bow.

How many arrows did you lose? LOL.

well, lost 0 arrows, broke zero arrows and got no score on 0 targets. All arrows found the target at one point lol.
