Thursday Night 3D is low key and fun. If you have never done a 3D shoot before this is a good place to start. Come on out and have some fun. New shooters are teamed up with more experienced shooter so that you can “learn the ropes.”
We normally shoot until just before the archery Elk season. (late July-August)We start shooting at 7PM, and are normally done by 9PM.
There are normally five 3D targets, and we shoot two arrows at each target from a shooting stake for the first half. Then, during the second half, we shoot two more arrows at each target from alternate shooting stakes. The longest shot is normally no more than 45 yards.
Any compound, recurve or longbow is allowed. Any arrows are OK (field or target points- no broadheads). You can use hunting sights, scopes, or, if you are a glutton for punishment, you can shoot barebow. Binoculars are important but not required. You will need at least two arrows and it is not uncommon for arrows to be damaged or lost so bring a spare or two. There are no shooting divisions for equipment so barebow shooters are shooting with target shooters.
After all shooter’s score cards are tabulated the cards are shuffled and then teams of two shooters are selected by a Blind Draw. The top three teams are paid 50% of the night’s proceeds. The Blind Draw for teams ensures that anyone can win or be in the top three teams.
The cost is $12 per night ($10 for club members).
All park entry fees are still required ($7 per vehicle and $2 per shooter). Yearly passes are available from the park.
