We decided to set up our first field archery day on Sunday 2nd July 2017. We decided to have printed animal targets on both Danage stands, small floor ‘have-a-go’ foam bosses and a small layered foam target on the floor.
As the targets weren’t up to much and to make it fair we all had to use beginners training bows and arrows, and shoot them as barebows.
We shot at 8 targets, one even had you standing on a levelled tree stump. Our scoring round gave you 2 points for a direct kill shot and 1 point for hitting the animal. Overall the maximum score was 96.
