Default Any equipment restrictions?

What kind of setups are you guys shooting? Are we talking strictly hunting bows (ie pins sights, short stabilizers) or are you guys using target bows with long stabs and v bars and scopes?

I've shot 5 spot rounds this week with my hunting setup and shot 297 - 298 with X counts in the mid 30's each time. I'm not sure I could hang with some of you guys!!

It is pretty much a shoot what you brought type of event, but I would be comfortable with changing colors of the names on the tracking spreadsheet to indicate who is shooting an open class target specific setup. This way we can all clearly see who is shooting what. I would be shooting a 65lb 3D bow with a short stablizer and pin sight but my bow, arrows, and sight aren't here yet. I will start the league with my indoor specific rig but will change over once the other setup is here and tuned up.

I think classes should be seperated by lens/stabilizer longer than 12". I do think I will probably be the only one with the lens/long stabilizer setup though (depending on when my 3D rig gets here).

I just shot my first couple of Vegas rounds over the last two nights.

3D rig (lens/short stab.): 5x 281
hunting bow: 10x 287

I'm real happy with the way my hunting bow is shooting but what's up with that 3D rig?![:'(] I've still got my spot bow I could shoot too but since bear hunting is right around the corner I may just stick to the hunting rig for this one.

So does that mean I get a special color cause I'm shooting an MBR set up?

I think people should shoot whatever they want. I'd have no problem with that. I just would like to know what kind of bow everybody is shooting so I could compare myself to other people with hunting bows like me.

There's no sense benchmarking myself against guys shooting target bows when I'm shooting a hunting bow. I'd like to know how I stack up against guys with similar setups, that's all.
