    Sure wish

    ASA would create a Sr. Bowhunter class. Every year I think they will finally step up and do it. Just dreaming.

    you're probably right that there are a number of folks who would like to see a senior hunter class. the problem would be, where do you put them? i guess they could shoot on the same range and at the same time as the hunter class. you might get some flak from folks in the hunter class who wouldn't want to see the class diluted and payouts reduced.

    i appreciate the fact that asa has set up open classes for more mature shooters and i wish you luck in your efforts to get a similar class for the hunter group.

    I think I would rather see a Pro Hunter or Semi Pro Hunter class develop. That would give the shooters in Hunter class a place to move to once they have won out and still want to shoot pins(hunting) style set ups.

    Dont they already have this class without the entry fees, 'Unlimited' shoots the Semi Pro Course, uses pins and shoots hunting style set ups.

    btw: the northern league (ibo) does offer a sr.Hunter Class, and they shoot the same course as the Hunter Class.

    if you are asking how many unlimiteds are over 60, it cant be that many the class only averages about 15 shooters.

    Now, up north, the shc class in PA last year had 86 shooters.

    The entry fees for archery are so low that paying a pro entry is not too bad and would bring the payouts up. I am just saying that there might be something to a semi pro or pro hunter and it could take off. As for older shooters wanting a Sr. Hunter, some federations have that class already. You might want to look at the numbers at their qualifiers.

    Well, the problem with moving them up to Pro Hunter or semi pro might be the increase in the entry fee. just saying. i'm no expert.

    Heck, we are old. LOL Put us on the same range with the Bow Novice guys. Let us have fun. I just find it strange that there are SR classes in the open area for Super Sr., Sr Open, Sr. Pro, and Sr. Masters. Yet, not a one for the old guy shooting his hunting setup.
