Pope and Young 3D shoot
Just curious who's planning on shooting the 3D course in Saint Louis... I'm up in the air had shoulder surgery in November and I just make sure I'm recovered 100% so I don't screw it up
Thanks Shug.... I was gonna post this thread. I'll get a Genesis bow for ya...
I'm in, who else? Ed F
Shug...My daughter has a bright blue mini Genesis you could use.
I will be making an appearance--in between performing my duties as bouncer at the "meet and greet"
Funny guys on this site...
Just curious what does the Genesis max out at?
This event was created at the request of the infamous cityhunter so I'm sure he'll be there.
Mini maxes out at 12 lbs...but you can turn it down.
If Zack shoots 3D like he golfs, you guys are in TROUBLE.
Am shooting as well. Zack is already talking trash so as one of his "life coaches" he has graciously offered me 7 shots to his 1 as my handicap.....
I just want to go and watch. I can't compete with you "Westerners". My max is 25 yards. Hell, I can't hit a mule deer at 35!
THAT's why you bought that 7 arrow Tight Spot Mark. I knew there was an ulterior reason.
Not me. Don't want to make a fool out of myself. Oh wait, did that before at P and Y. I think. Not gonna do it again. lol.
Shame I can't go. World's best 3-D shoot heckler.
Rob... that's a great idea! Ned and I will yell stuff at them and throw beer cans. If anyone knows any personal stuff about some of the contestants, feel free to PM the details. :)
Will the Bowhunter video crew be on the scene to catch some footage for a future show. Randy Ulmer could critique various shooting forms and styles.
Rob... I'd take that challenge. I've made more than a few people tear up their score card and leave the course for a cold one
Man I wish I could be there for this, I'd need that rubber boot thread just to wade through all the BS :) Unfortunately I was forced to choose between St Louis and Elk/Mule Deer as I was told unequivocally that I am taking the family to Disney for vacation this summer and any "Archerycations" are off the table until next year. I was out voted 4-1, although Jill Stein and I think half pint was coerced by her mother and demand a recount. :)
I'd bring my recurve, but I like you guys and I don't want to kill any of you.
There's 12 signed up so far... come on guys... We need twice that fo the beer cart girl to show up. Cityhunter is a no show so far. BTW I'm in charge so this is gonna be a really serious deal... bring your wallets... Ed F
Ed I'll bring my bow if you let me shoot with you...
Done... I'm gonna shoot traditional... No excuses Rick... Ed F
Done... I'm gonna shoot traditional... No excuses Rick... Ed F
I haven't sent registration in, but plan to shoot.
I didn't know you needed 24 people before the girl with the beer cart will show up. I'll pay for 12 more spots right now!
Does the registration come with a cart rental? Zack likely will need one!
I'm registered! Don't want to let Ed down...
it only took three years of lobbying for Joe to develop the 7 arrow Tightspot quiver....I certainly don't want to disappoint him!
Ed F said it will be a "fun shoot".......an old wise Canadian Archer once said, "There is always hope if carbon is in the air!"
Looking forward to it!
Pat, Jake and Mad Trapper signed up yet?:)
I'm in but if we can't get to 24 maybe Zack can dress the part?????
Don't make this weird, Bill :)
I thought it was Ned who dressed up weird?
Even though it's the P&Y shoot someone better be wearing one of these during that shoot just for old Ed since he missed out on the shirt release at the CBH state bh party this last year. Zack????????
I'm thinking about it I no longer have a 3 d Bow So if I decide to shoot I will have my hunting bow with Arrows in my Quiver with Broadheads.. I hope I don't loose any arrows I had one break last fall in a whitetail buck so I only have about 15 left
Bigdan...Not to worry...Mark W. can carry a few extra arrows for you in that new fancy quiver of his...;)
I'm going scouting for a few days afterwards in AZ and I'm not leaving my bow in the truck. I'll come if I can shoot someone else's bow. Not shooting one of these 80 lb tanks or the Genesis.
I am sending my registration in tomorrow....guess I better get a bow dialed in:)
So Ed, what are the rules? Are you going to have different classes or everyone shoots same stake? Guessed yardage or do I need a range finder? If it is just for fun some guys may want to use a range finder. If I am in Dan's group he has to shoot first!!!
Looking forward to seeing everyone!!
I don't know... You guys tell me how you want it. We are having the shoot at a big Missouri DNR property, Busch Conservation area. We just had the P&Y panel scoring there, beautiful place. The 3D's are brand new, donated by sponsors. The range will be set up before I get there, so I will be able to scout it out before hand. I figured we'd just go shoot some arrows and have fun. I don't care if we keep score or not. What do you guys want? Ed F
Works for me!!! Fun is always the best!
I am fine having just a fun shoot. Mark and Bill would find a way to cheat anyway...
trkyslr.... I'll be wearing my shirt for sure. Ed F
That is a fine looking shirt!
Are you going to sell the targets after? I'd love to buy the target that Zack misses.... Would be fun to post a pic on here and FB every now and again!
All in good fun you know.
I was curious about that as well
"I'd love to buy the target that Zack misses..."
Nothing but abuse for you Zack. Nothing but abuse. Buncha haters :)
I've been practicing my "gaitlin gun technique"...
P&Y fundraiser by selling the targets is a great idea....lets do it!
No competition? Figured you guys would be afraid of taking on cityhunter in the Championship round!
Participation Certificates will be awarded at the Meet & Greet:)
I will miss every single target, if it will help with fundraising for P&Y. I'm just sad the "state champion" archer will not be there to defend his title in a new setting
Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy the targets Zack hits?
Can the shoot be signed up at the banquet or does it need to be done prior with the banquet paper work?
Shug...If you wear "the shirt", it is a guaranteed victory. Sign up...
Shug are you still shooting with your teeth?
No way Cory...
And to the second Cory I haven't been I just turned the bow weight down considerably so I can get some form back
Probably best, you'd hate to lose more teeth. ;)
I think Champ might be planning a "surprise visit" to shoot our lights out....but then buying us all styrofoam concellation dinners:)!
You guys are HILARIOUS. Yes, I'm sorry I can't be there...But not too sorry. ;) And Shug...Don't cut the shirt's "mojo" short. I've seen it work its magic first hand.

And you're guaranteed at least one spectator... I'm coming from James Bay in northern Quebec just to watch you guys.
Is every target gonna be an African lion target?? That would be awesome.
Scott, can you please make sure you have a contact for golf cart rentals? I will need one of those for the 3-D shoot
I'm disappointed I can't make it this year. I would be shooting the 3D tourney for sure if I could have made it.
State schools in MN didn't get me very far in life Kota:)!
Say it isn't so.....Zack is our "bev cart chic?"
Ok... we have 20 signed up. Friendly 3D, we'll keep score for 2017 titles to be carried over. Traditional, fingers and release classes... Targets will be sold or maybe given away to participants. Clout shoot, team elimination shoot and whatever else we can dream up. Any other ideas? We need 4 more for the beer cart girl to show up... just sayin'. Ed F
Going to be a great time! Thanks for putting it together Ed.
Can we keep the targets close I'm only bringing 12 arrows!
Going to be fun!
I think I might need to actually shoot my bow if we are keeping score...
If Champ kills early in his hunt and comes then we only need 3 more!
I guess I can fold down my curve and bring it... then you guys could have something to laugh at. You could also debate if I'm snap shooting, string walking, gun barreling or instinctive. ;)
If I kill early and go from Grise Fiord, Nunavut to KC, I may as well not go back home....EVER.
Kota, remember, we are talking about hunting, conservation, changing the world for the good and the opportunity to hang with like minded good hearted people.......and a bev cart!
But I'm only allowed to be around Zack once a year in a "social" setting...
I am not bringin my bow as I don't want to embarrass myself anymore than I already do. Sounds like a fun event. Surprised that more people have not signed up for it.
I'm bringing my bow but don't wanna hear anything when I pace a little closer than the shooting stakes...I haven't shot in quite a while
C'mon Kota. I give you permission to hang out with me twice this year. It will be OK...trust me
Man I wish this was on Friday. I don't get there until until Thursday night. Sounds like a good time.
Kota, You actually tell her what day you kill? I learned long ago that I always kill on the last day of the trip!!
See you in St. Louis, not KC... :)
Lucky I'm not going...My reservations would be in the wrong town...
Zack...With my schedule this fall "the Warden" isn't handing out many "pardons".
You folks going to stack the targets two deep for Jake???
Bring your bow and shoot...just leave your tutu and flo orange tube top at home...that would be an "unfair" advantage!
lol. I am not a good shot. Can't show my true colors.
