3D Target ScoringThis 3D Round includes:

  • 28 3D targets
  • 1 Arrow per Target
  • Scoring is 10-8-5
  • Maximum Score is 280
  • Rangefinders are allowed

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 is 10-8-5 (see picture above).

An arrow that strikes a branch or other object and misses the target is 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 it’s worse than the first.

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.

If you hit the buck or miss completely, you may use a mulligan, and your score is determined by that second arrow.

Traditional Stakes for Recurve Archers and Longbows

Real-Time Results and Flexible Awards Presentation

Our online scoring system provides instant access to your scores and tournament placement. We’ve streamlined our after-tournament awards presentation to accommodate  the preferences of our volunteers and participants:

  1. 🏆 Immediate Results: Check your score in real-time without waiting for a formal announcement. Pick up your official award pin at our visitor’s table the next time you attend a tournament.
  2. 🎯 Flexible Awards Presentation: Due to a shortage of volunteers and the tendency of many archers to leave early, we’ve adopted a more flexible approach:
    • For tournaments with over fifty shooters, we’ll have an in-person awards ceremony at the end of the tournament, usually between noon and 1 pm.
    • For smaller turnouts, there may be an informal table awards ceremony presented by one of the staff. If you wish to receive your tentative award day of the shoot, please present your mobile device showing your placement to the staff member running the table awards ceremony.
  3. Always Accessible: Regardless of the physical awards presentation, all results and achievements will be prominently displayed on our website for recognition and record-keeping.
  4. Official Scores: Please note that your unofficial day-of-shoot placement may change. This can occur if scoring discrepancies are identified, data entry errors are corrected, or other adjustments are made during our review process. Official scores will be posted on our website by end-of-day Tuesday. Be sure to subscribe for notifications.
