3D Archery

3-D League Shoot at York County Bowmen

There are 26 participants in the 3-D League this year. There is still time to join in and improve your archery skills.

Hats off to Bill Farthing. He has spent a considerable amount of his own time keeping the two 3-D courses updated in alternate weeks

Don't forget, the top 7 scores will be counted when 3-D League scoring ends on Saturday July 12th. . Missed weeks count as low scores.

Final Results for 3D League.

 3D archery is a subset of field archery focusing on shooting at life-size models of game and is popular with hunters. It is most common to see unmarked distances in 3D archery, as the goal is to accurately recreate a hunting environment for competition.  

 
Though the goal is hunting practice, hunting 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.
In the past 10 years 3D archery has taken new light with a competitive edge. There is a whole new group of competitions that are no longer considered hunting practice. Competitions are held in many provinces and states. Some competitors will travel thousands of miles a year to compete to try and claim the world title in 3D archery.  
The York County Bowmen host a fun 3D marked distance shoot every May and a competitive 3D tournament in July.  See our events page for details.
