TYPES OF ARCHERY
In target archery, we shoot at roundel target faces set at distances up to 100 yards outdoors and 20 yards indoors.
For target archery we use a mix of different 2D and 3D targets at different distances and elevations.
For this type of archery you aim upwards and try to hit within a short distance of a marker on the ground at a distance up to 180 yards.
There are many different types of bows but the four most common that members use are recurve, barebow, longbow and compound.
Recurve archery is the bow type which is currently shot in the Olympic Games and has additional pieces of equipment such as a sight, long and side rods.
A traditional way of shooting a modern recurve bow, but without sights or stabilizers.
The English (or Welsh) Longbow is possibly the most famous bow in the world. The bow is typically around 2 metres long, has to be all wood (bamboo is allowed).
A bow that has a mechanical system that helps improve accuracy and can be held at full draw for longer.
