3-Spot round uses a single or three-spot target, which is shot at a range of 20 yards. Each archer will shoot 2 rounds per night (10 ends per round), which will consists of a total of 60 arrows. Each end archers must shoot three arrows & after each end is completed, the competitors walk to their target to score and retrieve arrows.
5-Spot round consists of 12 ends shot at 20 yards distance. That means you’re up at bat 12 times. Each end consists of five arrows, so you will step up to the line shoot your five arrows, score them, retrieve them and then do it again twelve times, for a total of 60 arrows.
When an archer talks about 3D, they’re referring to shooting at three-dimensional, life-like targets – normally made from foam and situated in such a way as to simulate a true-to-life hunting experience.
Every Sunday morning at Jim-Bows Archery, we host our 3D Archery shoots. These events start at 10am, and run from December to the end of February. Our course is built for all skill levels - we incorporate different shooting scenarios (fences, trees and shooting from sitting and kneeling) and the course changes every week.
Each shooter will shoot two rounds of 20 targets for $25, and you must have your own equipment. It’s a great way to practice for the indoor 3D season, for those of you interested in participating in hosted 3D tournaments. Either way, this league is a great way to meet new people with a common love of archery. Disclaimer, for those that haven't joined us before... you may break some arrows!
