Hampstead Bowmen are a Target Archery Club and we do not have Field Archery facilities, but several of our members visit other London clubs that do.
Field Archery involves shooting at targets of varying (and often unmarked) distance, often in woodland and rough terrain. Events are usually shot according to the rules of either the International Field Archery Association (IFAA) or the World Archery Federation (WA), but sometime to those of national organisations such as the UK's National Field Archery Society (NFAS) .
3D Rounds use life-size models of game animals such as deer. It is most common to see unmarked distances in 3D archery, as the goal is to accurately recreate a hunting environment for competition, albeit a more loosely organized form of competition than other types of field archery. Though the goal is hunting practice, hunting tips (broadheads) are not used, as they would tear up the foam targets too much. Normal target or field tips, of the same weight as the intended broadhead, are used instead. For more information click here.
