Hunter Scoring 3D Shoot // Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club



This past weekend was Steve's birthday!  We celebrated with friends on Saturday by having a group shoot for a couple hours at our club's indoor range. (you can see photos on the previous blog post!). Then the following day (Steve' birthday) our club was hosting a Hunter Scoring 3D Shoot... so what better way to spend your birthday (according to Steve) than to shoot your bow all day long!  Sounds good to me.

We met up with one of our friends, Andy, who is also a member of Semiahmoo and did a couple rounds throughout the day of the 3D course.  The hardest part was the hunter scoring... it's different than the usual scoring at a 3D shoot -  if you hit the animal target anywhere in the heart or lungs area, you scored a 10, BUT if you ended up hitting the rest of the body you would get a MINUS 5... so you literally could end up with a negative score!  (yikes!)  That -5 really played with my head... and I was dreading the results, but it turned out alright.

Steve placed 2nd for Mens Hunter Compound with a perfect 210 score! (Super proud of him!)  There was a shoot off at the end for the guys that all tied up at the end of the day.   I ended up placing 3rd for Womens Hunter Compound and was pretty happy with that considering the scoring was a lot lower than my usual average.  (Not a fan of "hunter scoring"... although it did make for some great competition and laughs!)

Steve's Birthday // Group Archery Shoot



Tomorrow is Steve's 31st Birthday... so we had a bunch of our friends get together with us and booked a couple hours at our club's range at Semiahmoo Fish & Game Club!  It was really fun having friends shoot with us, even for those that haven't tried archery yet.  Thank you to everyone who came out and celebrated Steve's birthday with us... it was great!
