    10 years ago it was all I did, may-be 25 shoots a year. I was a sponsored shooter for PSE for awhile, burn-out eventually set in.

    Ditto on what he said!

    Never been sponsored, never claimed to be a world champion(met a few hundred while working in an archery shop though...most didn't know what a peep sight was....hehehe), and for whatever reason....never placed first or second in a local match(usually less then 30 shooters).


    Love my Bowtech and Diamond bows!!!

    I've been shooting 3D tournaments since the early 90's. I have never been a sponsored shooter but I've placed in my share of tournaments. I just do it for fun and practice, though.

    I've shot 300 league and 3D. I don't practice much and I shoot an old MQ-32 but I can almost always pull out a top 6 spot with it and I've gotten a 1st and a 2nd. Good shootin bow and I like the way it hunts!

    started off in the late 70's and ended up by shooting in the NFAA national championships in 1985 in Darrington Washington along with my youngest son.

    since then, I've shot/hunted mostly traditional up to today. :)

    Used too until a rotator cuff and torn bicep tendon put me out of commission for almost 9 months. Never picked it up again.

    Yes, at 79 yrs I still manage to shoot 3 or 4 tournaments a year. NFAA life member. I have seen a lot of the world, thanks to Archery. Participated in World Tournaments, won some, lost some.
