The targets are organised by the size of the 'kill' zone into 'Groups' numbered 1, for the largest, to 4, the smallest. The inner kill circles are relatively small so hitting them is quite a challenge. For the 2 Shot, each group has a defined range of distances within which the course layer may choose to place the targets.
Two arrows, one from each marker, are shot at each target and both count towards the score so there is no need for identifying rings on the arrows. Archers shoot one at a time and, to avoid any undue advantage, they take turns within the group (of archers) to shoot first. The scores for both these rounds are recorded on the back of classification cards.
The marker pegs for the 2 Shot and Precision Rounds are coloured yellow and are set as a 'walk-up'. On group 1 targets juniors shoot from blue markers. Cubs shoot both their arrows from the same black coloured marker set at a maximum of thirty yards.
On the 3Ds the lines are moulded into the foam although, in the picture, the kill and inner kill zones have been highlighted with a black line. To qualify as a hit in the higher value zone, 'line cutter' arrows must cut right through the line and into the higher zone. Any arrow thats land outside the wound line, for example in the hair, horns, or hooves and branches or rocks, is counted as a miss.
The general EFAA rules also apply to these rounds and for more information, visit either the EFAA or IFAA websites.
