Field Archery

Field Archery sees archers use any bow type shooting at various, unmarked distance, 3d and 2d targets representing animals - its history dates back to early man hunting for their dinner!


Over that last couple of years, Fred and I have developed the unused far corner of our Withington field to provide a practice area. Regrettably, compound bows cannot be used here due to the overshoot limitations.

 

We continue to improve the experience, with a variety of targets, distances, and stance demands. We shoot from atop, and over, our "bund", and from ground level.

As our planted trees grow, the area becomes even more interesting!

 

Why not give it a go? If you've not shot Field before, just contact either one of us and we'll sort something out to help you join in.

 

PLEASE ENSURE THE SAFETY ROPE IS PULLED ACROSS THE FAR RANGE SHOOTING LINE WHEN USING THIS AREA - THIS ALERTS OTHER MEMBERS THAT YOU'RE
SHOOTING!

 

Our main 3d Field Course, located in the woods down at Dell Farm, Sundorne Castle, is currently undergoing some significant changes as the landowner invests resources in managing the environment agency reservoir.

Therefore, we are currently limited to only half of our normal space - however, by clever target and peg management, we're still able to offer around 36 different, challenging shots!

 

Fred and I will be re-planning the whole course, along with Andy Yates and Trevor Sparrow, once the improvement works - and their results - are completed.

 

As always, we will be aiming to squeeze as many challenges for all archers into the resultant course!

If you haven't tried 3d Field archery, contact myself or Fred, and we'll sort something out to get
you involved!

If you haven't experienced our 3d course yet - why not? Join in - you'll love it!


The improvement works coincide with the COVID-19 necessary restrictions - so, to ensure we are able to offer you the safest, socially distanced experience, book your place at Dell Farm using the Bookwhen system!
