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.
