    I shoot target with Recurve, Compound and Longbow. However, I also shoot field with a tradbow, I personally didn't feel right walking the woods with all the recurve or compound paraphernalia. I shoot my longbow with a band, but the tradbow three fingers under and intuitive aiming. A day walking the woods shooting 3D, National animal or forester rounds with good companions has got to be the best fun you can have with a bow in your hand.

    I shoot GNAS/AGB started off target, and very quickly took up field as well. I shoot AGB field rounds for competition and target for practice. I am a member of a NFAS club, but as they have their own insurance they don't need me to join NFAS, so I don't do NFAS competitions.

    I made the switch from WA target to WA field technically last September but threw myself whole heartedly into shooting field this year for the simple reason that it's more fun, more sociable and it suits my mentality a lot better (three shots and then move on to a new set of challenges.. lovely stuff)

    I shoot target mostly in the indoor season now to keep my "under pressure" skills sharp, and also mostly to see friends I've made whilst shooting target who don't want to/ can't shoot Field for whatever reason

    I did years ago after chasing scores in target. Now I am trying to make the move from not shooting much back to field!
