The San Diego Archers
Will host the Animal Round
This Saturday, April 15, 2017
At the Balboa Park Rube Powell Archery Range

Registration opens at 7:30am

The Animal Round includes:
28 2D Paper Field Targets
1–3 Arrows per Target
Maximum Score: 588
No Rangefinders allowed

Ani­mal Rounds use 2D paper tar­gets with ‘uneven’ dis­tances between 5 and 60 yards, rem­i­nis­cent of the Hunter Round. The rules and scor­ing are sig­nif­i­cant­ly dif­fer­ent.

The archer begins at the first YELLOW 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.


Animal Target

The best score per target is 21
Maximum Score: 588

There are 3 scoring zones: Bonus Kill Zone, Kill Zone and Hit Zone.

Scoring is based on where you hit and 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. A scoring chart is included on your scorecard.
