This 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 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.
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.
* For 3D Round events, if range-to-target is greater than 40-yards due to an apparent error in target cone set-up, you may use a rangefinder to adjust your shooting range to 40-yards.
- Read the NFAAUSA.com Scoring Rules (Section K., NFAA 3-D Rules and Regulations).
• For Youths (12-14 yo), the longest distance is 40 yards
• For Cubs (11 yo & under), the longest distance is 25 yards.
