Please review the how to register online page before attending this tournament.
• Register online – Shoot times run from 7am to noon.
The 3D Round includes:
28 3D targets
1 Arrow per Target
Maximum Score: 280
No Rangefinders Allowed (however, if you like, you can shoot in the Guest (Open) class category below and use a rangefinder but you won’t be eligible for tournament awards and scores do not count towards end of year club totals.)
We use a wide range of high-quality Rhinehart and Mackenzie targets set in various hunting scenarios. Only one arrow per target is allowed unless mulligans were purchased. A maximum of two mulligans and two doe tags can be purchased at registration for $1 each.
As an unmarked shoot, you have to estimate the distance to the target yourself without the assistance of a rangefinder. This is a difficult and challenging aspect of these shoots, so don’t let your shooting partners know what you think the distance is!
Maximum Score: 280
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. Your score is determined by that second (mulligan) arrow even if your score turns out worse than the first arrow.
You could use the second mulligan on the same target but your score is determined by the last arrow shot.
There is a maximum of two buck-doe spreads in the field where the is doe placed between the buck and the archer. If you hit the doe and do not have a doe tag, you score negative five (-5) points on that target. With a doe tag, you score zero (0) points however you cannot use a mulligan if you hit the doe regardless of possessing a doe tag or not.
If you hit the buck or miss completely, you may use a mulligan and your score is determined from that second arrow.
