3D Fun Shoot // Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club

This past Sunday, our club Semiahmoo Fish & Game, hosted another 3D fun shoot.  It was a bit chilly outside... I decked myself out in a poofy vest and toque! haha... but of course it was still a blast either way.  One of our friends, Andy, recently bought a PSE compound bow, so it was great to have him come out and shoot with us!

I was also super excited to find out at the end of the day that I placed 1st in my class (Womens Compound Fixed Pin).  What?!?!  Now I am starting to appreciated all of the practice that Steve is making me do... lol.  Who knew.  A year ago I wasn't even keen on shooting a compound bow and thought I would just stick to shooting my recurve... now I'm at a 3D shoot with my trusty old PSE Nova. :)  (It's an oldie and I get a lot of comments on how people "remember shooting one of those back in the day"...haha)

Place 1st in my class! (Womens Compound Fixed Pin)

Outdoor Range // Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club

The weather is getting cooler outside as Fall starts to come around... but we still manage to get out to the range at Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club whenever we can!

May Long Weekend // Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club

We ended up not going camping as the usual this past May Long Weekend... but did still get to spend some time outdoors at the outdoor range at Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club.  I ended up bringing my "good" camera this time around (Nikon D300s) and snapped these photos instead of the usual iPhone shots we take.  We even had our very own visitor... a deer came to check out what we were up to and stuck around for quite a while!

Our bows... PSE Nova, Win & Win SF, Bear Game Over
Managed to capture a shot with the arrow in flight!

3D Shoot for the Cure // Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club

This weekend, my husband Steve and I had a weekend full of archery at our club, Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club for the 3D Shoot for the Cure.

Last year, Steve and I just picked up archery as a hobby and we figured by now we'd be able to shoot a round without losing too many arrows in the 3D shoot. :)  It was a lot of fun (and I only lost one arrow, haha... better than I expected!)

Incase you're not entirely sure what a 3D shoot is... 3D archery is a form of target archery (and it's addicting and tons of fun!).  Targets are set along a course, in this case along the nature trails in the woods of Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club.  The challenging part is that you have to guess how far the target is... it can range from 20-50 yards.

We had a great time, met a lot of new friends from our club (Semiahmoo Archers) and received some great advice and tips throughout the weekend from some of the experts! :)

Indoor Range // Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club

We were able to get some practice in tonight at Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club's indoor range.  I hope we're ready for the 3D shoot this weekend! 

For anyone that's interested (and lives near the Surrey, BC area) - Monday and Thursday nights at Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club are archery nights!   It's a great place to practice or learn if you are brand new and interested in archery!

Archery on the Farm // Practice

Steve and I spent the afternoon at the Flaming farm to practice for next week's 3D shoot at our club, Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club.  It's their annual Shoot for the Cure...  I finally bought new arrows... (desperately needed them) and will be rocking my new pink Carbon Express arrows! haha!
