Introduction to 3D Archery

The term 3D archery generally refers shooting at 3 dimensional life-like targets made from self healing foam in situations which would mimic real life hunting experiences. Early use of the targets was primarily for bowhunting practice but over time, shooting clubs began setting up courses to challenge hunters which led to more competitive venues leading into what we know today as 3D archery. Most early targets where made to resemble deer but today, manufacturers like Rinehart and Mackenzie make all kinds of animals in various sizes – from skunks to giraffes and everything in-between including dinosaurs and aliens!

Equipment Needed

Shoot what you have! There is nothing special needed to get started in 3D archery – just a desire to have fun! Bring a bow and field point tipped arrows – everything else including a sight and release are optional. When you attend an event, you may see high tech target rigs with long stabilizers but they are not needed to do well – many archers do extremely well with a recurve or longbow. Remember, as you start shooting 3D events, HAVE FUN! If you just want to practice – Great! If you want to be serious and compete – Great! No need to even keep score if you don’t want to. You will likely be charged a fee for shooting regardless of whether you want to compete just to cover the ongoing maintenance of the targets you will be shooting at. If you have never been to an event like 3D before, be sure to ask about range safety and etiquette.
