Saturday’s shoot will be a special Halloween UNMARKED 3D Round! 






We will have the regular 28 3D animal targets, PLUS six real pumpkins for bonus shots for a total of 34 3D targets! Pumpkins will be scored 10-8-5. An additional 10 points will be awarded to any archer in Halloween costume (Max. score: 350). Sorry Hunters, camouflage costumes don’t count….too easy!!!


We need help setting up the 3D animals and pumpkins. Anyone who helps set up or take down any 3D round will shoot for FREE!

If you would like to help with the set up, please send an email to SanDiegoArchers@yahoo.com. 

NOTE: This is our first attempt at a pumpkin shoot. If you have suggestions for how it can be run better next time, please join us and show us how it is done (don’t just tell us!)


For SDA Members trying to qualify for Club Championship Awards, the total score from the 28 3D animals will be used in calculating your score (Max. score: 280). If you have any questions about the Club Championship Awards and Banquet, please ask any SDA Officer (Duane, Graham, Patty or Valare.)

 Regular 3D rules apply: 

  Unmarked Halloween 3D Round

This Saturday 

The San Diego Archers

Will host the 3D Round

At the Balboa Park Rube Powell Archery Range

This Saturday, October 31, 2015.


Registration opens at 7:30am

Registration closes at 8:45am

Shoot begins at 9am

The 3D Round includes:

28 3D animal and six cultivated Curcurbita pepo (Pumpkin) targets

1 arrow per target


A wide range of high quality Rhinehart and Mackenzie animal targets and cultivated Curcurbita pepo targets are set in various hunting scenarios.  Only one arrow per target is allowed unless mulligans have been purchased.  A maximum of two mulligans and one doe tag 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!

Scoring: 10-8-5

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.  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 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 50 yards.

For Youths (12-14 yo), the longest distance is 40 yards.

For Cubs (11 yo & under), the longest distance is 25 yards.

Entry fee: $15 per person,  $10 for members

Active Duty Military: $10


Note: As with all 3D shoots – We will shoot come Rain or Shine.


Please arrive at the Balboa Park Archery Range with plenty of time to register.
