The typical archery range is flat, with targets set at exact distances. In contrast, 3-D Archery takes the archery range into the woods, introduces unique angles, and creates new ways to have fun with a bow.
This discipline gets its name from the three-dimensional animal targets that challenge archers at each station. The targets range from small skunks 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 deer target, and then walk a few steps to shoot at an alligator in a swamp. The shots try to mimic the countless scenarios bowhunters could face in the field.
This creates realistic bowhunting practice, but 3-D archery isn’t just for hunters. It’s exciting for any archer because no two shots are the same, and it’s meant to be played with a group of archers.
