Stowe Archers Outdoor 3D Shoot: June 2014

Stowe Archers Outdoor 3D Shoot: June 2014

This month has been a bit of a mess. With an upcoming move fast approaching, I’ve had to shuffle my schedule around quite a bit. I missed the Lower Providence USPSA Match and would have missed the Southern Chester USPSA Match yesterday had it not been cancelled. Today would normally be the day that I attend the Ontelaunee USPSA Match. Due to a schedule conflict at the club, the match was pushed to next weekend. This rare free weekend, and [...]

New Holland 3D Archery Program

New Holland 3D Archery Program

Earlier today I got word from Annette Evans, IDPA Match Director at New Holland Rifle and Pistol Club, that New Holland has released their 3D Archery Program Schedule for the 2014 Season. New Holland will be hosting shoots which consist of 28 Targets at a cost of $10 per archer. One very unique aspect of the program is that it is Handicap Accessible (which is unheard of at most clubs due to wooded courses). While I’ve never been on the [...]

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 5

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 5

Week 5 of the Stowe Archers Field League has come to a close. Over these last few weeks, I’ve learned something. I find that I enjoy Field Archery just as much, if not a little more, than I do 3D Archery. I think it has a lot to do with the number of arrows shot. Instead of one arrow per target, thirty total for a typical 3D Shoot, I’m shooting four per target, 56 for a 14 Target Round. That [...]

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 3  

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 3

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been spending my Friday Afternoons at Stowe Archers. Troy an I have been getting together to particulate in the weekly Field League. This past Friday, however, heavy rain put a damper on our plans. Instead, I headed out to Stowe on Sunday to shoot before the monthly meeting. Not having a partner to talk to, I decided to bring a couple of video cameras along to help fill the time. I set one camera [...]

Hamburg Game Association: May 2014 3D Archery Shoot

Hamburg Game Association: May 2014 3D Archery Shoot

Over the weekend, Hamburg Game Association hosted their monthly Outdoor 3D Archery Shoot. In addition, they were running an ‘All You Can Eat Pancake Breakfast’. Since my wife was busy with school (weekend clinical classes at the local hospital), my daughter and I hopped in the car to partake in a little breakfast and shooting. The day started off a bit cool with the ground being wet from an overnight storm. By the time we finished breakfast, the sun was [...]

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 1

Stowe Archers Field League: Week 1

The past few weeks have been fast paced and stressful. After work today, I was hoping to get a message from Troy that he wasn’t able to make it to Stowe, to shoot the Field League, and that we would need to reschedule. I was a bit stressed and had a laundry list of things to do around the house. When 2:00 rolled around, I loaded my bow into the car and began the trek to Stowe Archers. I wasn’t [...]

3D Archery at Hamburg Game Association: April 2014

3D Archery at Hamburg Game Association: April 2014

It has been such a busy week that posting about the April Hamburg Game Association 3D Archery Shoot completely slipped my mind. With Spring finally here, the Outdoor 3D Archery Season is upon us and I got out to my very shoot of the year, two weekends ago. The weather was perfect and I enjoyed a leisurely walk through the woods, hunting foam animals. I didn’t come away with a very good score, mostly because I felt like I was [...]

2014 Curt Peterson Southeast PA Indoor 3D Showdown

2014 Curt Peterson Southeast PA Indoor 3D Showdown

As of about 3:00pm today, the 2014 Curt Peterson Southeast PA Indoor 3D Showdown is in the books. I had the pleasure of shooting the event, just barely making the cut, this morning with an 11:30 Line Time in Bowhunter Division. It will probably be a few days before scores are released and I know how I did against the other shooters in my division. I came away with a 317 against my partner’s 303. I haven’t done much shooting [...]

Stowe Archers: 2014 Curt Peterson Southeast PA Indoor 3D Shootout

Stowe Archers: 2014 Curt Peterson Southeast PA Indoor 3D Shootout

Thanks to the Brutal Pennsylvania Winter, today was the first time in over a month that I’ve been able to make it out to an Indoor 3D Archery Shoot. I was a little concerned that I’d be rusty but I managed to shoot a pretty decent match. As usual, Stowe Archers put on a shoot that was both fun and challenging. There were a couple of small targets at distance that I had my doubts about, primarily a Skunk and [...]
