    Setting up my mission compound for field

    Last week I got my old Mission Rally back from my dad and today went about setting up with what I already have.

    I have decided I want to use it as my a field bow, as I have plans to visit a field range some time soon and shooting my clubs 3Ds set up at various distances is fun.

    So far I have a 5 pin fibre sight, with a 9" stabiliser, both came with it when I got the bow used, and I have fitted a Decut blade as it's the only spare rest I have as that to came with the bow.
    I am aware that a blade is not the best choice for field.

    so what I need to know is what is better for a bow occasional use on a field corse, and shooting my clubs 3D targets. Should I go with a biscuit, a 3 brush type or something like a limb saver style drop away? And what are the benefits and disadvantages of them?.

    Do I need to tune the bow in a certain way?

    I do IFFA & 3D . For the last 10 years all I have used is a blade rest & I love them no maintenance just adjust for walk back tuning setup once done forget . For a couple of years until I buy another new bow.

    Fingers or release?
    P.S. Biscuits and brushes are fit for nothing except keeping kids arrows on the bow.

    Regardless of Field Discipline, I'd still shoot a full "target" rig and shoot the Comp. Unlimited class. I now have the option to have a bow as a dedicated "Field Bow" meaning I can swap arrows on that bow based on the experience of the course (fatties or skinnies) while maintaining a "Target Bow" that is setup for the season but that is the only difference.

    And many do just that but the OP states he's putting on a pin sight, hunting stab and thinking about either biscuit brush or blade. I'm assuming he's not necessarily going to shoot any style at all as pins would tend towards CL and the stab BH. TBH just sounds like OPs just having a play. Good for him.
