I have noticed that there is a perception that a decent compound shooter will generally beat a traditional archer in a 3D contest. I am of the opinion that this is due to course design more than anything else. Example , if you have a number of moving shots and odd position shots from actuall bow hunting range the traditional archer will outscore the compounder. If you have the average 3D tournament with clear lane long time limit shooting then the compound shooter will do better than the traditionalist. Often I have compound shooters ask me how a longbow can be accurate or fast enough to kill a deer, when they shoot an informal course with me set up to the traditional standards I outlined above they become much more convinced as they are unable to even take some of the shots on the "course" Any thoughts ?
