Wow, what a weekend! After attending the USA JOAD Nationals I hopped on a plane the night after eliminations and arrived home at 6pm. Then woke up at 4:30 am the following morning to shoot in the Texas ASA State shoot. I was thankful that my Perform X 3D arrived home safely and continues to stay in tune and shoot flawlessly throughout all of my traveling. I arrived at this tournament with my Gold Tip Pierce Tours and switched to a larger Axcel scope housing that morning. After shooting a few arrows at the practice range, we realized that the marks on my sight tape did not work well with the larger housing. So we grabbed my Axcel Accutouch sight that worked well for me at the World Field Trials. We made a quick gang adjustment to get me back on track. As we started moving through the course, it was clear that our problem was not fully fixed. I shot an 8 on my first arrow, then a 5, and followed with another 8. We made another adjustment and it was 10s and 12s from there on out. I shot 11 up after being 9 down and finished in second place in the Womens Known 40 class! This was my first ASA state tournament and only my second time shooting 3D. So I went in with an open mind and was eager to learn more. I want to get more involved in 3D, it is challenging but to much fun! I also tried my luck in a long shot contest. While at the practice range I saw a cougar target sitting 74 yards away. I shot it just for fun, unaware that it was set up for a contest, and managed to hit it first try!
