Animal Round 

This Saturday


The San Diego Archers

will host the Animal Round

this Saturday, April 19, 2014.




Please arrive early to allow for the longer walk from parking areas.

(See details below)


Registration opens at 7:30 am

Registration closes at 8:45am

Shoot begins at 9am


The Animal Round includes:

28 2D Paper Animal Targets

1-3 Arrows per Target

Maximum Score: 588


Animal Rounds use 2D paper animal targets with ‘uneven’ distances between 5 and 70 yards, reminiscent of the hunter round. The rules and scoring are significantly different.

The archer begins at the first shooting stake of the target and shoots the first arrow. If it hits, you do not have to shoot again. If it misses, you advance to the second shooting stake and shoot a second arrow, then to the third shooting stake for a third shot, if needed.  NOTE: On some targets, all three shots are from one shooting stake only.

There are 3 scoring zones:  Bonus Kill Zone, Kill Zone and Hit Zone. Scoring is based on where you hit with which arrow. The first arrow shot is scored 21, 20 or 18. The second arrow is scored 17, 16 or 14, and the third arrow is scored 13, 12 or 10.

The best score per target is 21, the total possible score for the round is 588.  


Entry fee $15 per person, $10 for members.

Please arrive at the Balboa Park Archery Range with plenty of time to register.

To ensure we start on time, it will be necessary to close registration at 8:45am.

Shooting starts at 9:00am.
