Saturday is the Clout and Wand shoot, Sunday is the 3d shoot with shotgun start and broadheads. If you've not shot the clout and wand before it is worth it to shoot Saturday. I've felt fortunate to to have scored at all shooting the wand round.

I made a turkey Wingbone Yelper for the event...Rich Thompson will be giving it away at the shoot.  Maybe one of you guys will win it?

Those turkey wingbone calls are awesome, winning one would be a real treat

If you go both it's fun. You can shoot the clout and wand whenever on Saturday so go later, spend the night and you won't miss the shotgun start. It's a fun shoot. Usually plenty warm.

I can only make Saturday this year, but when ever you can make it out, it is worth it.

Is the 3D shoot with broadheads or can you use field tips?
Title: Re: Pope and Young shoot

Broad heads I believe. Originally this was supposed to be a shakedown for hunting season (so I am told).

This was on the Traditional Archers of Oregon Pope & Young flyer.  FWIW

Bows for Men, Women, Youth must draw 40# at archers draw length.
One bow must be used for all events.
One set of broadhead (2 blade preferred) tipped arrows must be used for all events (except cubs).
If you choose to shoot for fun, you do not need to follow rules listed for competition.

Thank you portugeejn, I didn't see that on the flyer

2 blade broadheads preferrably so they don't rip up the targets too bad. I believe for the novelty shoots, like the flying goose, you can use field pts on your fluflus.

It also says that if you are not shooting for competition you do not need to follow the rules....field pts? draw weight lower than 40#?
Title: Re: Pope and Young shoot

Awesome, I'll bring both and just shoot for fun, this is gonna be a great time

Just got home from the shoot. It was a good time. The weather, being cooler than past years, was a real blessing.
I was fortune to have drawn Ron's turkey yelper!
My friend, Jon, shot really well and won the trail shoot. It was pretty unexpected by him! Pretty cool.

I forgot the camera....but there were others from TAB that took some. Hopefully they will post some pics.
There were lots of new targets including life sized bull elk. One person actually hit the wand FIVE times!

Bummer no pics. Was that Jon McCoy?  5 wands.. Who was that? We had a small trad shoot here this weekend. Pretty fun but way small. I need to whip that thing in to shape. Shots from 10-50 yards. 28 targets. I'm gonna try to make pope and young next year? Would love some pics too.

Yep, Jon McCoy. His brother Andy shot with him and said it was "boring"! haha  Missed having you and the "Wonder Wagon" there Okie. Sure would be good to see you roll in next year. I'll call a few guys and see if I can round up some pics tomorrow.

One of the novelty shoots was a remote controll car with pulling 5ft of string with a balloon tied on the end! Too much fun with that balloon going up and down as it passed by.
The Dave Wuiff flying goose has a pattern now. The other side of the rotating horizontal bar is a mallard duck...I think the Ore.State guys might have something to do with it being a duck!

I made it early Sunday morning and wandered around for an hour or two before everyone got up. The 3D course was awesome, I got to meet and shoot the course with Edward Boyd of Trinity Longbows. Got to meet and talk to alot of interesting people there. Next year I'm going to try to make it both day's. Unfortunatly I also didn't bring a camera but if anyone has pics I would love to see them
