    Default Kind of scared to go to a 3d shoot.

    I love shooting my bow. I am a member at the local range and yet I am scared to death to shoot in the 3d tourneys. What could help me get over this?? any tips? I guess it stems from not having a buddy to go with. Its like golfing with 3 strange dudes. kind of intimidating. dont want to be "that guy"
    Thanks

    I was like that last year. The wife and my shootin buddys couldn't make it to a few shoots so I went solo. JUST GO you'll have a great time. Look for a friendly face (there are lots) and ask if you can join the group. Best thing I could have done. You get to meet most of the regulars, see others shoot ( what went right & what didn't), get great info, check out equipment without prying, and put a spankin on some .

    No reason to be scared, just go to have fun.
    A little common sense goes a long way, unfortunately it's in short supply!

    go spend some time on the range perhaps you will meet a new buddy. I went to my 1st 3d shoot solo had a great time . best way to get over this fear of being "that Guy" is just go an be your self.. just have fun and shoot your bow never know you may be that guy that won
    It's all fun an games till you put that big boy on the ground.. now its time to get to work

    relax, if your nervous about these strangers you probably wont see them again anyhow. 3d is a great way to do off season practice. Just remember these other guys put their pants on one leg at a time just like you.

    Default Have fun

    Just go and have fun if you are anything like me you will relate to the people on the 3d range more than any one else in this world.I love being around people that have the same interist and passions.no tree hugers no p.e.t.a. just a bunch of good people doing what they love it is a great sport and you will have alot of fun. you can also learn alot about shooting and hunting have fun.

    My first 3d shoot was nerve racking. Some how managed on the 3rd leg of a shoot took 8th place in mens bowhunters open. So much fun, didnt lose an arrow and i didnt miss the target so i was happy as hell. Just go and have fun, dont take it seriously its just a game.
