3D Archery

3D Archery is a Match run similar to golf.  Each participant shoots 2 arrows at a 3D foam animal target from the 1st “T”.

Pre-Registration is required on Eventbrite.

After all shooters have shot target 1, the shots are scored.  After scoring, everyone moves to the 2nd T and shoots 2 more arrows into the 2nd target. There are 7 targets total, shooting 2 rounds for a total of 28 arrows shot and scored.  The highest score “wins” bragging rights.

Targets are set at different distances each match and no range finders are allowed. It is an event to help hone one’s hunting skills and practice estimating distances.


5 pts for hitting the animal
8 pts in the kidney
10 pts. lung
11 pts a direct heart shot
“On the Line” counts as the higher of the two.
