This is an Unmarked 3D Tar­get shoot. All you com­pound bow shoot­ers, dust off your long­bows & recurves. Get out and do it like it should be done!

There will be one Com­pound bow class for those who haven’t got a REAL Bow.

A wide range of high-qual­i­ty Rhine­hart and Macken­zie tar­gets are set in var­i­ous hunt­ing sce­nar­ios.

"Bowman Platform"NEW THIS YEAR!!
Thanks to great feed­back from fel­low archers through­out Cal­i­for­nia, we have increased the num­ber of tar­gets from 28 to 32 and from one arrow per tar­get to two arrows per tar­get!

Two arrows per tar­get at 32 tar­gets!!

A max­i­mum of two mul­li­gans and one-two doe tags may be pur­chased at reg­is­tra­tion for an addi­tion­al $1 each.

As an unmarked shoot, you have to esti­mate the dis­tance to the tar­get your­self with­out the assis­tance of a range find­er. This is a dif­fi­cult and chal­leng­ing aspect of these shoots, so don’t let your shoot­ing part­ners know what you think the dis­tance is!

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. 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 the 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 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.

  • For 15 years and old­er, the longest dis­tance is 40 yards.
  • For Youths (12–14 yo), the longest dis­tance 40 yards.
  • For Cubs (11 yo & under, the longest dis­tance is 25 yards.
