This month we’ll be focusing on Archery Safety Awareness.

If you are a paying member of the San Diego Archers you’ll receive official San Diego Archers safety glasses as a thank you for being a member of the San Diego Archers. Be sure to pick one up at the registration table!

All shooters will be asked to read and complete a safety checklist and written answer to this question:

“When speaking with a new archer on the archery range, what safety tips would you give to him or her relating to archery safety?”

Be creative with you answer and have fun—Archery safety makes archery better for everyone!

The 3D Round includes:
28 3D targets
1 Arrow per Target
Maximum Score: 280
Rangefinders are now allowed on all 3D Shoots

We use a wide range of high-quality Rhinehart and Mackenzie targets set in various hunting scenarios.  Only one arrow per target is allowed unless mulligans were purchased.  A maximum of two mulligans and two doe tags can be purchased at registration for $1 each.

Scoring: 10-8-5
Maximum Score: 280

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 is a maximum of two buck-doe spreads in the field where the is doe 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 possessing a doe tag or not.

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

Traditional Stakes for Recurve Archers and Longbows Shooters

Longer range targets will have a traditional stake (orange cone) set (per NFAA rules).  Orange cones are designated for Youth and Traditional archers with a maximum distance of 40 yards.

Our younger shooters:

  • For Youths (12-14 yo), the longest distance is 40 yards.

  • For Cubs (11 yo & under), the longest distance is 25 yards.
