First time 3D shooter
Going to my first 3D shoot next week end.
30 targets ranging from deer, turkeys to dinos.
I've been reading up on the basic rules/guidelines. Plus I'm working on gaging my distances.
Just so I don't come across like a complete goof, is there anything else I can do to prepare for this event?
thanks in advance,
just have fun, remember your to keep your form, don,t worry about your score
Yes, tell the group that you are shooting with that its your first time, and they'll take care of you. Normally one person scores and pulls arrows and another ( or two ) keep score, for your first time, you don't want to be either of those. :)

It does sound low key, they even call it 'Rubber Boot Shoot' because of snow-melt this time of year.
Will post some pics next week end!
Can't stress that enough, keep your form. That was my mistake at the 3d shoot I went to, been working on it ever since.

Despite my horrible performance and 3 broken arrows, I had a blast! :D
Well, how did you do?
Carefull, shooting 3-D's can become very addicting.
Absolutely what Don B said. The weekend is over and it's time for a report.
i'm surprised nobody mentioned practicing judging distance.
That's because it isn't something you can learn in a few days. Either you got it or you don't. Some people practice it a lot and still never get it. To some it just comes naturally. Practice? Yes, but after the first shoot you'll know more of what you need to learn.
