Animal Target

The Animal Round includes:
28 2D Paper Field Targets
1-3 Arrows per Target
The best score per target is 21
Maximum Score: 588

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 the second arrow, then, to the third shooting stake for a third shot if needed.

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.

Younger shooters

For Youths (12-14 yo), the longest distance is 40 yards
For Cubs (11 yo & under), the longest distance is 25 yards.
