WHAT IS 3D Archery
3-D Archery takes the archery range into the woods, introduces unique angles, and creates new ways to have fun with a bow. Each station introduces a three-dimensional animal target that challenge each archer. The targets can range from small vermin to massive elk, and are set along a course that resembles a hiking trail.
Each target helps create a different shooting scenario. You might shoot downhill at a bear target, and then walk a few steps to shoot at an alligator in a swamp off a tree stand. The shots try to mimic the countless scenarios bowhunters could face in the field.
How to play
You must register, fill out a form and pay a fee to play. If you are alone, ask the shoot organizer if a group of experienced archers can help you out.
After registering, visit the practice range to warm up and verify your sights are set. Once you’re warmed up, hit the course with your group or join another.
At the first target, you’ll notice stakes or small flags stuck in the ground. Stakes at each target designate the shooting position. Most 3-D courses have stakes at various distances to accommodate different equipment and age classes. If you’re a beginner, choose a stake set at a distance you feel comfortable shooting.
You’ll fire one arrow from the stake at each target. Once everyone in your group shoots their arrow, you’ll walk to the target, check your results and pull your arrows. The group then moves to the next target. This process continues throughout the course, which usually has 20 - 30 targets.
