Planning on being there Pappy. Hoping my eye gets better by then. Still got the double vision and pretty blurry yet. Hoping I don’t have to switch to shooting Left handed. But I’ll do what I have to. Hope you get your hearing straightened out. Merry Christmas.

I think you would enjoy it James we get several from Virginia, we use to get most of the people from the south/west and several from the north, not so much east, but over the last few years we have been get a lot of folks from the Carolinas/Virginia and the east and also FL.Great to see and meet people from all parts of this great country.

Can’t wait! Great shoot

We are hoping to go to the Tennesse Classic this year. We were wondering is there spacious camping available and how early in the does one have to arrive to get a site? Are there other campgrounds close to the shoot? Are there any restaurants in the area? After all the years of going to ETAR, we were disappointed in the location change: too spread out and unorganized in my opinion. Thanks

From: NYBowhunter
Date: 01-Jan-22




How many targets at the Tennessee Classic?

From: Clydebow
Date: 01-Jan-22




Clarksville is 20 minutes or so, and has hundreds of restaurants.

From: Clydebow
Date: 01-Jan-22




There are usually 40 targets with an optional bonus steel target. Also a 3D target practice range, and a bale target range.

From: bentstick54
Date: 01-Jan-22




Are there any restrictions on the 3d practice range, or once registered can you shoot it as many times as you want?

From: Pappy 1952
Date: 02-Jan-22




Once registered you can shoot the practice range all you want. Lots of camp sights but the later in the week the more selective it will get. Pappy

Hope to do the selfbow challenge

From: Boker
Date: 09-Jan-22




If you have never been to the classic then by all means just go! You will not regret it. I kicked around the idea for years and those years I’ll never get back.

From: Babysaph Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member
Date: 09-Jan-22




Isn’t that the shoot where you can make a self bow?

From: Clydebow
Date: 09-Jan-22




Yes

From: Danny Pyle
Date: 09-Jan-22




You won’t find any better Traditional Shoot than this one, hope to make it back sometime.

From: Pappy 1952
Date: 09-Jan-22




Yes Jack , it is called the self bow Challenge, you make a bow over the week and shoot it for score Friday/Saturday or Sunday morning, we have a separate set of awards for it, we also have all the other Classes /Recurve/long bow and selfbow. Looking forward to seeing yall, time flies so it will be here before you know it. Also our full schedule is out, just go to [twinoaksbowhunters.org] for dates'directions/motels and other info about the club. Pappy

Everything goes as planned the family and I will be out for the first time from KS.

From: Gaur Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member
Date: 12-Jan-22




Suggestion for those thinking s out trying the self bow challenge. Bring a stave that you’ve already gotten somewhat close. I didn’t and didn’t get done in time last year as it ended up being a challenging stave of Osage to chase a ring.

From: Babysaph Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member
Date: 12-Jan-22




I’m coming down for that one. I’d love to learn to make a bow. Where can I get info on it?

From: bentstick54
Date: 12-Jan-22




Jack, all contact info is stated in the original post. Any info not garnered from this thread can be found on their website, or by calling Pappy direct. As stated many times, this is a great shoot and place to buy a stave and learn how to make a self bow. :)

I may have missed this but it’s a 3 day shoot. When do you make the self bow? I know nothing about it so I couldn’t have one almost done.

"I may have missed this but it’s a 3 day shoot. When do you make the self bow? I know nothing about it so I couldn’t have one almost done."

The year I made one I started on Wednesday with a blank I bought there. It had already been spliced and started, so I didn't have as much to do as someone starting from scratch. I still wished I had gotten there and started earlier in the week.

From: bentstick54
Date: 12-Jan-22




People start showing up and camping as early as a week before. Like Ragnall mentioned, they have bow blanks roughed out ahead of time that you can purchase, but I bet if you want the full experience you could probably buy a split stave and start from scratch if you wanted to. If you intend on camping, get there early in the week because the prime spots fill up early. The year I went I drove in on Wednesday, and was lucky to find a spot close to the bow building area, vendors, and start of the courses.

From: kstradhunter
Date: 12-Jan-22




Man. Everyone keeps saying show up early for camping spots. Im thinking we'll get there wed or thurs so hopefully will be a spot!

From: babysaph Professional Bowhunters Society - Qualified Member
Date: 12-Jan-22




But it is only a 3 day shoot as the original post states. I must have missed something.

From: otis
Date: 12-Jan-22




Pappy will probably be there from the 21st through the 2nd. Campers start showing up the Saturday before the shoot. Last year I think they were there on Friday. Not having it the year before due to Covid. If you are planning on building a bow get there as early as you can. Hope that clears it up for you. Yes the actual shoot is 3 days but the event is alot more than the shoot itself.

Thanks Dave, as Dave said the main shoot in 3 days, Friday/Saturday and cards in by 2:00 pm Sunday, but I am there all week and a lot show up early especially if they are wanting to get in the selfbow Challenge, you can do the self bow Challenge Friday and Saturday but you really got to stay with it and the bow shop gets full so people come early and get started and many are done by Friday.I tell people it is kind of like a several day rendezous with a shoot thrown in. My suggestion if you have never been there is to come to shoot, look things over, talk to people and then decide if you want to do the self bow thing, it is a good shoot either way, the self bow challenge is just something a little extra we have thrown in the mix so everyone can have a good time and something to do if they are interested.We have a lot of self bows people there about 150 last year out of 750, the vast majority shoot Recurves and long bows. We have plenty of camping but the closer /flatter spots do get taken up early, It is Tennessee ya know.Hope this helps. Pappy

I scheduled a week vacation to attend. Had some injuries last year and couldn't make it so I'm really looking forward to going. Gonna try to drag Bob Enlow with me (we might have to use walkers or maybe all terrain wheel chairs). Man I do love this event. The staff is great and the target set is the best I've shot.

From: Pappy 1952
Date: 16-Jan-22




That's great news Jim, look forward to seeing you and also hope Bob can make it, he is a great guy/good shot and old friend. Pappy
