    Default Still learning

    Hey guys, I'm still pretty new to archery and I am very interested in 3-d archery. I belong to the Izaak Walton league here in Maryland. Right now they are doing an indoor small 3-d course and when it warms up it will move outside to the large course. Before I show up I would like to have a little knowledge under my belt. I'm sure you guys can help. 1st- how is it played? 2nd- how is it scored? 3rd-What advice can you offer me? Finally, Will this benefit my skills for the upcoming hunting season or hurt it due to habits I may pick up?

    3-D is a great way to practice for hunting because it helps you hone in your distance judgement.
    Scoring is done the same way as shooting at a normal target face.
    12 points for the X, 10 for the next ring, 8 for the next etc. Or 10, 8, 5... Depending on how they mark them at the place your shooting.
    You get one shot per target.

    it really does help judge distance and keeps you in shape.
