FIELD RANGE
Like 3-D, the Field Range is a walking course which takes place in both the field and woods.  A normal range has 28 targets, but here at HAHA we have a half course of 14 targets which range from 20 feet to 80 yards.  The distance to the target is always known and each archer shoots 4 arrows per target.

Note.  Violation of the above rules will not be tolerated.  Club Membership may be terminated, and criminal prosecution against any offender and associate may be undertake
