You will start shooting at the signal at approximately 9:00 am both days. The alarm horn will sound to begin. We have also added a 2pm shotgun start time for Saturday and Sunday.
1. Shooters can choose to shoot all 50 targets in one day or shoot 25 targets on Saturday and 25 targets Sunday.
2. YOU MUST START ON THE TARGET ASSIGNED ON YOUR SCORECARD. You will be disqualified from the event if you change targets without prior approval from Registration.
3. Your first target will be for SCORE. There is no practice target. Shoot from the stakes appropriate for your age group:
Blue- Youth, Young Adult, Trad, Amateur Women; 45 yard Max
Red- Cub; 25 Yard Max
Orange- Peewee; 15 Yard Max
White- All other classes; 101 Yard Max
4. This is a 2 arrow shoot, scored 11-spot (Orange dot), 10-kill (Yellow ring) and 8-wound (rest of body). Scoring is determined by the position of the arrow shaft; an arrow shaft need only touch the edge of the spot, scoring line or animal to gain the higher value. In the event the edge of the spot or scoring line has become distorted or missing from arrow impacts, the scorer must visually reconstruct the natural arc of the spot or scoring ring to determine the value of the arrow in question.
5. The archer must be as close as possible to the shooting line, which is marked by the distance stakes. No archer may advance to the target before all arrows in the group have been shot.
6. Arrows which are not visible that have passed through the animal’s scoring area, may be pushed back and scored so long as part of the arrow is still in the animal or backstop in which the animal is attached.
7. No archer shall advance to the target and then return to the stake to shoot again unless an arrow is found to have obviously passed through the animal.
8. Bounce outs, glance offs and off-ground skids or glances into the target WILL NOT count. If witnessed, arrows striking an object over the shooting lanes may be re-shot.
9. Any archer who shoots arrows at the target in excess of the prescribed number (2), shall lose the arrow or arrows of the higher value. Repeated arrows such as a test arrow or arrows for a bet shall deem the archer subject to disqualification. Any arrow shot into 2 separate targets loses the arrow of higher value.
10. A shot arrow is an arrow that has been propelled by the string for any distance and MAY NOT be reshot.
11. In order to keep the tournament flowing smoothly, maximize the shooting line by shooting multiple archers at a time. If there are one or more open targets in front and two or more groups back up, the delaying group shall allow backed up groups to shoot through.
12. We will be enforcing a “3 Let Down” rule. A fourth let down will be counted as a shot arrow.
13. Tripods for spotting scopes and tripods for binoculars shall not be permitted.
14. Both sets of cards must be turned in each day. The scorekeepers for each group need to pick up scorecards by 7:45 am on Sunday. Note: they will be filed under the target that you started on. On Sunday, scorecards must be turned in with both scorekeepers and shooter initials. Anyone signing an incorrect scorecard is subject to disqualification.
15. All shooting styles will abide with the Trail Shoot and current NFAA equipment rules. In the event of a conflict, the Trail Shoot rules prevail. Tournament Officials will judge any equipment rulings or doubtful arrow calls. Their word in all disputes is final.
16. It is your responsibility to verify the information listed on your scorecards. Be sure to check your name, style and class as posted on the scoreboard. Check all of the appropriate scoreboards; Trail and Money Shoot. If a correction is necessary please address it at registration before 4:00 pm Saturday. Corrections will not be accepted after 4:00 pm Saturday.
17. All arrows shot by an archer must match in arrow size, diameter and weight as well as fletching.
18. Protests must be submitted in writing along with a $50 protest fee to registration within 30 minutes following the end of the days shoot.
19. Scorecards must be turned in on Saturday within 30 minutes after the last group finishes shooting. After the announcement Sunday afternoon to end shooting, you will have 30 minutes to turn in your scores. Scorecards turned in after that time will not be posted.
20. In the case of equipment failure, the archer may have the needed time, as granted by a tournament official, for equipment repair or replacement and may shoot arrows required to assure that the proper sight settings are accurate, within the 45 minute time limit. Then, in the presence of the tournament official, be allowed to shoot the targets missed. This occurrence of repair or replacement may not happen more than once in any tournament day.
21. No archer shall draw a bow with the bow hand above the top of the head when drawing on a horizontal plane, parallel to the ground. This act is either referred to as “high drawing” or “sky jacking”. Any archer drawing a bow in such a manner is subject to immediate disqualification.
22. Absolutely NO alcoholic beverages may be carried or consumed on any range during shooting hours. Anyone caught breaking this rule will be immediately disqualified and escorted off the range.
23. Please be courteous to other archers. We know you may have to wait your turn to shoot, but please keep your conversations low while others are shooting.
24. All rules are subject to the interpretation of the Tournament Director.
