The Animal Round is a 28 target field archery round shooting at paper targets of animal images from YELLOW-colored stakes. The distance is marked, usually at odd yardages between 5 and 60 yards.
The scoring is based on your 1st successful hit out of 3 arrows. There are 3 scoring zones: Bonus Kill Zone, Kill Zone, Hit Zone.
You only need to shoot your 2nd and 3rd arrows if you have not scored with the previous arrow.
Add up each arrow’s score to give a total score out of a maximum 588.
Scoring works like this:
|Bonus Kill Zone||Kill Zone||Hit Zone|
The Hunter Round is a field archery round of 28 2D paper targets, firing 4 arrows per target from RED-colored stakes.
There are 3 scoring zones on each target. Each arrow scores either 3 points for the outer black ring, 4 for the middle black ring or 5 for the center white ring. There is a center X ring to the inner 5-point zone.
Add up each arrow’s score to give a total score out of a maximum 560.
Yardages are marked and are in ‘uneven’ increments (not always in multiples of 5 yards) from the target varying between 33 feet up to 70 yards.
We utilize a diverse selection of high-quality Rhinehart and Mackenzie targets, arranged in various hunting scenarios. Only one arrow per target is permitted unless mulligans are purchased. Participants may buy up to two mulligans and two doe tags for $1 each, either online or at the visitors’ table. The scoring system follows a 10-8-5-0, where misses, antlers, and horns are awarded “0” points. According to NFAA archery rules for 3D tournaments, an arrow that strikes a branch or other object and misses the target is generally considered a miss.
About Mulligans and Doe Tags
If you missed or scored low with the first arrow, a mulligan allows you to take another shot at a target. Your score is determined by that second (mulligan) arrow, even if your score turns out worse than the first arrow.
You could use the second mulligan on the same target, but your score is determined by the last arrow shot.
There are a maximum of two buck-doe spreads in the field where the doe is placed between the buck and the archer. If you hit the doe and do not have a doe tag, you score negative five (-5) points on that target. With a doe tag, you score zero (0) points; however, you cannot use a mulligan if you hit the doe, regardless of whether you possess a doe tag or not.
If you hit the buck or miss completely, you may use a mulligan, and your score is determined by that second arrow.
This is a 90 arrow (900 points) round, shooting 5 ends of six arrows at each of 60-50-40 yards for Adults, 50-40-30 yards for Youth and 30-20-10 yards for Cubs.
Each arrow scores 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 or 0 (for a miss) points based on the scoring ring hit on the target.
