Default Archery League ???

There is a archery league opening up this week in my area. From what I understand it is shooting at game on a screen of some kind. There is a computer that runs the video and scoring. I don't know much more about it than that. Anyone ever done this before that could shed some light on the subject for me?

There is one in my area, I haven't done it, but it looks like fun. Infact if that guy that owned the range wasn't such a flake I would go shoot there. His shop is in Arlilngton Texas, only about 12 miles from my house. If you get a chance to do this, do it, you'll like it.

Its called Technohunt or is along the same lines as that machine. I've shot this type of league the last two summers and it's a blast. Good practice for interpreting shot angles and kill zones on all sorts of animals.

It is definately a blast. The league would be fun to get in and check your skills against the other competition. I like 3D as well.

It is worth getting a couple of friends together and talk a little trash while shooting (helps build your confidence when your being heckled by yoru buddies). We don't do that in the league though.

There is a pro shop near us that has one. It seems to be great, you only have some many seconds to shoot and if you shoot late the score doesnt count, and you have to be on the money.....when i get back from Iraq I am gonna try it.

Join, you will love it. I shoot every year in our league and do well individually, as a team we do ok. It definately helps with shot choice and angle. One hint though, on some series, preditors and varmits are bullseyes when you shoot them in the head. Just be careful, there are some disks that do not score it that way.

You'll LOVE turkey heads. I think you'll learn some new 4 letter words that you didn't even know existed.
