A popular alternative to target archery. It is based on conditions that might be met when hunting, by shooting at targets that vary in size and range from a succession of different shooting positions. If set in undulating woodland, a course can be both attractive and challenging to the archer.
This is purely shooting for the maximum distance achievable. There is no target to aim at.
In clout shooting arrows have to be shot to fall into a target area, marked by rings on the ground. The English clout consists of shooting 3 dozen arrows at a target 24 feet in diameter, containing five scoring rings, at distances of 120 yards to 180 yards dependent upon gender and bow type. The Metric clout consists of the same number of arrows, but the target area is 15 metres in diameter and distances are 125 metres for Ladies and 165 metres for Gentlemen.
Consists of shooting vertically up a 30 metre high mast with arrows which have blunts fitted. The objective is to dislodge the 'COCK', 'HEN' and 'CHICK' birds from the roost. Points are awarded for each bird dislodged.
The arrow has to be shot onto the green, once there a 'PUTT' is achieved by hitting a 4 inch disk. Normal golf rules apply.
Archers shoot at a darts face 2' 6" in diameter at a minimum distance of 15 metres. Any darts round may be shot.
