3D Archery - What Is It and Tips for Competing
by: Grady McGraw

3D archery is a great way to stay sharp and is very popular with bow hunters. In 3D archery, a person is shooting at targets that are life like and resemble the actual shape and size of a real animal. The purpose of this is to try and recreate the environment a hunter will be in when they are actually in the field. Even thought this is merely an exercise, used mostly as practice to gain hunting experience and sharpen your skills, typically broadheads aren't used here. This is simply due to the fact that they would easily tear up the targets, which are typically made of foam, causing them to need to be replaced. Instead, regular field tips are used, as they are the same weight as the broadheads which hunters will likely be using out in a real life hunting scenario.

Though some hunters simply use 3D archery as a practice exercise, a place in which to hone their aiming and shooting skills, others use it as an outlet to have a little friendly competition. Whichever way you choose to make use of this archery practice, it will be a vital way for you to learn what things you excel at and which areas need a little bit work. With archery, there are several things that will factor into how well you end up doing. Everything from your frame of mind and your strength to your physiology and your training will come into play and will determine how good of an archer you will be.

It is very important to be able to recognize weak points in your skills that need improvement, but you should also be able to recognize what skills you are good at. This way, when you are on in real life hunting environment, you will be able to use the skills you excel at in order to compensate for the things you aren't so good at. When it comes to 3D archery, or archery in general, remember that it isn't about how strong or powerful you may be, but rather how good your technique is. No amount of strength will be able to overcome poor technique.

With 3D archery, it is important to not only work on those areas where you are weaker and not so good at, but should also not neglect the areas which you do well in. Working on your weaker skills to build them up while neglecting the things you do right will only lead to you becoming better at one skill while another gets worse and worse.
