Response to I care, a lot

That hunter should be an entry level class till the shooter decides what "Real" class he is going to shoot. I am going back 10 years or so when that was the thought. Open class was the most popular class and if we had 10 shooters every once in a while some one would shoot Hunter. I think the first guy in our club to do so was LD. Pretty soon as new guys came in we steered them to Hunter because that was the least equipment intensive for them to get into the sport. that is how we "grew the sport". Funny thing is no one ever graduated to the "Real" class (open) and in fact there has been a gradual defection from open to hunter particularly as guys age and the knees get bad. I'm 72 and still shoot open because as you know old people don't want to learn new things and I can still get up and down without injury. Anyway, hunter now seems to be the dominant shooting style in our club and Open is going away. Now we are starting to see guys gradually gravitate to "Freestyle". Pretty soon it may be a big significant class. Time will tell. If i get to the point where I can't get up and down any more that is probably the direction I will go so I don't have to buy new scopes. We will be steering new guys into Freestyle till they decide to shoot a "Real" class. And so the evolution of FT in America will continue.
