Winter Field League

The Winter League Field Shoot is held on our 16 target field course, with three arrows per target. This is a fun event and is not a full World Archery 24 target round, and as such, it is usually wound up by noon. You do not have to post your scores, but if you do post your scores, you have a chance at bragging rights to, Best Single Score, Best out of Three Scores, Best out of Six Scores, and Best Total over the season. There is usually 8 to 10 shoots per season (depending on alignment with other events) running from October through March. ( No shoots in December ) The shoots go rain, shine, wind, or snow which is part of the fun, so please wear appropriate clothing. If you are a Cowichan Bowmen member, or a member of an established archery club, come on out for some shooting, camaraderie, and fun.

Time: Sunday mornings--Practice 9:00am -- first arrow 10:00am

One pair will start the shooting at the group's first butt. Then the pairs alternate shooting first for the rest of the course.

One archer in each pair will shoot the entire round from the left side of the stake, and the other shoots from the right. In a group of three archers, the third archer acts as the second pair, and he/she always shoots from the left side of the stake.
