What is an Animal Field Round?
ďA field round is a challenging course, generally placed in a woods, in varying terrain, at different distances from target to target.
There are a few basic differences between field archery and most 3-D courses. Most notably, that field courses have marked yardages." The targets are drawn pictures of various animals. You shoot 1-3 arrows at each target. Some of the shooting positions let you shoot all arrows from one marked stake; some shooting positions have stakes at three different positions where you walk toward the target on each shot. The standard NFAA animal round has distances that vary from 10 yards to 60 yards. There are four different size faces, the further the target, the bigger the target. The idea is that it teaches you to aim at a spot and will make a better all around archer out of you. Now the younger folks get a break. If you're under 15, your longest distance is 50 yards; if you're under 12, the longest range is 30 yards.
