What is Field Archery?


Field archery involves shooting at targets over varying unmarked distances,
Depending upon if you shoot NFAS or FITA Field, there are different rules and targets to shoot.
Field Archery is often in woodland and rough terrain (rarely in a field).
The archers follow a course, shooting at targets in sequence,
each from one or more positions depending on the rules in operation.
The courselayer will try to fool the archer into mis-judging the distance by subtle use of dead ground or by using natural obstacles!
A variety of bow styles may be used.
NFAS may also shoot life-size foam 3D animal targets or paper pictures of animals or birds.
Field archery provides exercise, builds stamina and requires self-control.
But above all it's fun for all the family!
