Default 300 Shoots

A "300 shoot" is a target competition shot at 20 yards. You will shoot 60 arrows in 12 groups (ends) of 5. In other words, shoot 5 arrows, score them, retrieve them, and then repeat the whole process over 11 more times. Scoring is 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. So if all your arrows fall within the 5 point range, you will wind up with 300 points. At the very center of the 5 point circle is a smaller circle with an "X" in it. If you hit this, the score is still recorded as a 5, however, you also record it as an "X". The winner between two archers with a tie score is determined by the number of X shots. Ultimately the best score would be a 300 with 60 X's. Consider shooting for money when you get to this point. One final thought....there are 2 types of targets which can be shot in a 300 round called "single spot" and "5 spot". The single spot has 1 target printed on the paper and has concentric rings for the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. The 5 spot has 5 targets printed on the same size paper but only has the 4 and 5 rings on each target. Both of course have the "X" ring also.
Why shoot the 5 spot? Because as you develop you will find that you'll only want to shoot 1 arrow at a target to save on Robin Hooding your arrows (saves on $$$).
