WHAT IS FIELD ARCHERY?
Field Archery is simulated hunting in a wood using a bow and arrow. We shoot at paper face animal pictures, 2D and 3D animal shaped targets. A shoot generally consists of 36 or 40 targets, none of which have marked distances. At each target there are coloured pegs which you stand with your leading foot against to take your shot. You shoot upto 3 arrows at each target, but if you score with your first arrow, you don't shoot anymore arrows at that target. For adults your 1st shot is taken from the red peg, 2nd from the white peg and 3rd from the blue peg. children have yellow and orange pegs which are nearer the target. you will be in a group of upto 5 people, and once everyone in your group has shot at the target, you go and score it. None of the arrows should be removed until the scores have been taken. you then move on to the next target.
Scoring is as follows:
1st Arrow 2nd Arrow 3rd Arrow
Inner Kill Zone 24 points 20 points 16 points
Outer Kill Zone 14 points 14 points 10 points
Wound 8 points 8 points 4 points
