The Field Round is a field archery tournament of 28 targets, firing 4 arrows per target for a total of 112 arrows. There are 3 scoring zones on each target. Each arrow scores either 3 points for the black outer ring, 4 for the white middle ring or 5 for the black bulls eye. There is a center ‘X’ ring to the inner 5 point zone. A total of 20 points is possible per target, a perfect round is 560. Field rounds are at ‘even’ distances up to 80 yards, with the shortest distances measured in feet.
Targets may have different shooting positions:
1) All four arrows shot from one marked stake
2) “Fan”: Each arrow shot from a different marked stake, spread in a fan pattern, each stake at same distance to the target.
3) “Walk Up”: Each arrow shot from a different marked stake at decreasing distances to the target. (e.g., one arrow each at 45, 40, 35, 30 yards; or two arrows each at 45 and 40 yards.)
For Youths, under 15, the longest distance is 50 yards.
For Cubs, under 12, the longest distance is 30 yards.
