    Welcome to the 3D and Field Archery Section

    Welcome, this area is for field and 3D archery topics of your choice. If it looks like we need it divided in to different sections, that can be done. Hopefully we can have EFAA, NFAS and GNAS/FITA archers all joining in together.

    RE: Welcome to the 3D and Field Archery Section

    Hi...just wondering what the 3D shoots are like in England. Do you have a wooded course where you have targets set up? We shoot 24 or 25 targets twice along the trails and in the iron man that we just went to we shot 20 targets 3 times...each time from a stake set at a different distance. Different classes shoot from different stakes. It's a long day but it's a lot of fun.

    Hi...just wondering what the 3D shoots are like in England. Do you have a wooded course where you have targets set up? We shoot 24 or 25 targets twice along the trails and in the IRON MAN that we just went to we shot 20 targets 3 times around the course...each time from a stake set at a different distance. Different classes shoot from different stakes. It's a long day but it's a lot of fun.
    There are lots of different courses. Mostly in woodland, but others mixed with the fields and open spaces around them. Most competitions are run around 36 3d targets, the club I shoot for usually have 40 targets out over a woodland course. I have shot at clubs where the targets were laid in various places about a trout farm and another round a show jumping arena.
    There are different scoring systems too. The most popular being Big Game with a high score of 20 per target (depending on which arrow and where you hit the target).
    4 pegs to shoot from, red, white, blue and yellow. Adults shoot from the red peg, if you miss you walk forward to the white and shoot one more. If you miss again, you walk forward to blue and shoot your third and final arrow. Scoring as follows:
    1st arrow = 20 Kill / 16 Wound
    2nd arrow = 14 Kill / 10 Wound
    3rd arrow = 8 Kill / 4 Wound
    Juniors and cubs, depending on age, shoot from the closer pegs with cubs shooting all 3 from the yellow peg. Lots of different styles at the shoots, but you only compete against people in the same class.

    That's great that you get to shoot again if you miss. We can't do that at our shoots....one arrow per target. I think that's really a good idea...especially for the kids and the new shooters.

    You may have mentioned it...but what is the farthest distance you shoot for women and Men? At some of our shoots we have a bonus shoot at a Javelina at 70 - 80 yards and it's open to anyone. Most womens shots here are no further than 30 yds other than the Javelina. It would be interesting to see a British shoot one day....maybe I'll visit my sister near London and do just that!!!

    Thanks for the information.

    It depends on the target Momma ... and the space available. You do get some very long shots. A good one is a downhill shot at Brixham .... 100+ yards at a lion in open ground. This picture is from the cub peg:
