OAA Field Championships
At first glance, target archery and field archery might look the same. Archers in both disciplines draw a bow, take aim, and shoot arrows at a round target marked with circles. What’s the difference? Target and field archery have different rules, scoring systems and course settings. 

Field archers shoot on a walking course – sometimes called a “roving course” – that’s usually wooded. Target distances vary from less than 10 yards to 80 yards, and target faces differ based on the round being shot. Archers may shoot field, hunter or animal rounds. In the field round, targets are black and white with a black center; in the hunter division, targets are all black with thin white rings and a white center; and in the animal division, paper targets feature colorful images of animals. If the animal division sounds fun, and you want to take it a step further, try 3-D archery! (link to 3D Champs info)

Notables about outdoor field archery:

  • Targets are placed at varying distances in realistic outdoor settings.
  • The sport emulates hunting situations.
  • Competitions are divided into rounds of two sets with 14 targets each.
  • Competitions often feature rough terrain.
  • Rounds take different forms, such as the “hunter,” “field” or “animals (not shot in Ontario) style, each with specific rules.
  • Archers tend to shoot in groups as they navigate the course.
