    I just wanted to see how many of us on here shoot in archery leagues during the off season to keep your skills sharp. I shoot in two, one adult league on Wednesday nights and one youth league on Saturday mornings. Both of them are 3d. I love shooting in them and look forward to each one during the week. How about you?

    I'm really excited to start shooting some leagues and doing some shoots. I have been so busy the last year with moving and such. Now I'm all settled in and I have been shooting everyday trying to get my form ready for some shoots this summer.

    I have a new bow coming on Tuesday or Wednesday so I'm going to have to get that all set up. Going to ask when the next league starts when I'm at my archery shop then.

    When practicing I have a smaller target that doesn't quite have enough space to fit a five spot target on it so I use one of the spots. I pin it to the target with nails and shoot a 300 round. I work from home so I like to shoot on my lunch break and then after work when my girlfriend gets home and wants to shoot with me.

    I plan on starting up here soon. I believe the first shoot is on the 13th of April so I still have some time to get sharpened back up.

    I'd love to shoot in a league but $40/mo is too rich for me. Just cuz I wanna spend the $$ at the deer expo. but it definitely would help with shooting.

    My daughter shoots a Monday night kids league. She wouldn't dare miss that. She even went this past Monday, after having a minor oral surgery and being out most of the day; she called me at work and told me to hurry home so she wouldn't miss archery!

    I've been shooting some 3D tournaments this season, there is one every other weekend.

    I sometimes go on Tuesday nights for the spots league. As great as it would be to make it to spots league more often, I just don't see 2 nights a week as a great idea for a happy homefront. Especially since the shop is about 25 miles from the house.

    When I was younger I was shooting 3 times a week but the fee wasn't bad at all either $6 on training days and for Matches was $15... but then again that was when I was in the youth division for a local league, now distance to get to any actual matches take forever and cost is a little high but if I can find one I would join as fast as a otter cracks a clam.

    I shoot a Tuesday night league that goes from the end of April to the week of July 4th. It is outdoors in the woods at paper targets. Its only $50 for the season. Then they change it to 3D targets until hunting season starts and that costs $5/wk. I look forward to it each year. Then I mix in shooting with my friends throughout the year whenever we have spare time.

    Wish I had the time to shoot some leagues and stuff but never got into it. The two GTG shoots in 2009 and 2010 ate the only 3d I have ever done. Maybe once I finish school I'll get into it a little more.

    Hey guys from Northern Illinois. Any archery leagues in northern Illinois? I've been shooting/hunting for over 15yrs. But getting into target more and more lately. I only know of Strictly Archery in Shorewood but that's too far south. I'm in Winfield. Any suggestions?

    I absolutely love shooting 3D... actually thinking about buying a specific target bow... I have all the target gear on my hunting rig... but next year, I'm thinking about stepping it up to an exclusive target bow.
