What is Field Archery?
Field archery involves shooting arrows at target faces or 3D animals on an outdoor course.
The field archery course is usually situated in woodland and the targets are all set at different marked or unmarked distances. The targets may have to be shot up or down gradients, at a variety of different distances or shooting angles. A selection of different rounds can be shot on the field course but the most commonly shot are the 3D UAR rounds. The targets also vary in size depending on the round being shot and the distance.
We have shooting nights on Tuesdays and Saturdays in
St. Mary’s Hall, Dublin Rd, Portlaoise
