Field Archery is shooting in a bush style setting at a variety of distances and targets. Archers walk through a course that is set out in advance with a series of challenging shots designed to off more challenge than straight up target shooting.
There is a variety of field games with DVA offering World Archery Field (formally known as FITA Field) and 3D archery.
3D Archery is usually unmarked (no distance given) and shot at 3D foam animal shaped targets. This gives it a huge number of variables as you have to work out the distance and also where the score zones are.
3D is the biggest form of competitive archery in the USA attracting most of their top professional archers.
We run regular shoots and competitions and while challenging, field is great for people of all abilities.
