~Range Find­ers Allowed~

If you know any­thing about the local flo­ra and fau­na of the Bal­boa Park area of San Diego, you will be aware of not only the exis­tence but also the migra­to­ry pat­terns of the Pink Less­er Spot­ted Rhine­hart Fly­ing Pig. 

For those of you who are less famil­iar with this leg­endary exo­dus, all indi­ca­tions point to the migra­tion begin­ning on Sun­day, Feb­ru­ary 5th, 2017, start­ing at 9:15am and last­ing until around noon. Dur­ing this time we antic­i­pate that each per­son will get at least one chance to shoot at this unusu­al crea­ture dur­ing its majes­tic flight across the Bal­boa Park skies (plus 27 oth­er tar­gets)!

So, get out your bows and start prac­tic­ing! Reg­is­tra­tion for this range find­er-approved nov­el­ty 3D event starts at 7:00 am.

This is a 1 arrow, nov­el­ty 3D shoot. You’ll find the Pink Less­er Spot­ted Rhine­hart Fly­ing Pig and a wide range of oth­er high-qual­i­ty Rhine­hart and Macken­zie tar­gets set at unmarked yardages in var­i­ous hunt­ing sce­nar­ios.


  • Scor­ing: 10–8-5
  • Max­i­mum Score: 280

Mul­li­gans & Doe Tags ($1 each):

If you missed or scored low with the first arrow, a mul­li­gan allows you to take anoth­er shot at a tar­get.  If you use a mul­li­gan, your score is deter­mined by that sec­ond arrow, even if you score worse than the first arrow.  You may use a sec­ond mul­li­gan on the same tar­get.  Your score is deter­mined by the last arrow shot.  

There will be 1 or 2 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 -5 on the tar­get. If you have a doe tag, you score zero.  You can­not use a mul­li­gan if you hit the doe, whether or not you have a doe tag.  If you hit the buck or miss com­plete­ly, you may use a mul­li­gan and your score is deter­mined from that sec­ond arrow.


Additional mulligans may be purchased for the Flying Pig!

  • For 15 years and old­er, the longest dis­tance is 50 yards.
  • For Youths (12–14 yo), the longest dis­tance is 40 yards.
