    A buddy and I were discussing doing 3D or indoor winter league to stay in practice for deer season. Low and behold I see that there will be an R100 in Wabash, Indiana in July. Having never so much as shot 3D before, what do I need to know? My main question is how many arrows should I plan to take? Im sure Ill come up with more as time goes on.

    The R100 is a blast. Each target is known yardage, 50 yards max.

    There are two 50 target courses, North American game and the Safari range which has African game, dinosaurs etc on it.

    Here are some photos of some of the coolest targets that you dont get to see very often at other paces that are at the r100. Hopefully it will pump you up for the shoot as it really is the most fun shoot I have ever done. I did this shoot with Josh / OH last year.

    The photo with the apple is a bonus shot. If you hit and embed your arrow into the apple (not glance off of it) you get 24 points for that target. It is a pressure cooker shot because the line is always backed up at that target and you will have a ton of people watching you. Last year it was 25 to 27 yards.

    I usually carry 5 arrows on me during 3d shoots. A friend that I shoot with usually looses about 4 per 30 targets lol.

    I started doin one that's pretty close to my house last year or two, they do 3 or 4 a year and have 25-30 targets. I'd say go for it if you have chance. Its pretty good time and good practice. As far as arrows I take 3 or 4 with me most times. Only ones I've lost are from breaking then on the iron target they set up. Its a steel cutout of a deer with a 4 inch foam piece where the heart is. Counts as 20 or 25 points I think and its the final target so most ppl don't shoot it at the cost of arrow but it's still pretty fun to watch.

    If its first few times just go out and have fun, thats all I do and really dont worry bout even keeping score. Its something different and good place to bs with new people.

    I did the Wabash shoot this year, and I thought was great. Had a great time, and was one of the best run R100's I've attended over the years in different locations. I live in the St. Paul, MN area and shoot the Sparta, WI R100 and travel to another one most years. I've been at Sparta, Aurora, IA, Wabash, Fresno. They all are fun.

    Was a few new targets this year, including this fella...
