Join us for 3-D Archery at Chinsegut on the second Saturday in March. Registration is NOT required! For those who are unfamiliar with 3-D Archery, below is a good definition.
A typical archery range is flat, with targets set at exact distances. In contrast, 3-D Archery takes the archery range into the woods, introduces unique angles, and creates new ways to have fun with a bow. This discipline gets its name from the three-dimensional animal targets that challenge archers at each station. The targets range from small rabbits to large bears and are set along a course that is also a hiking trail. Each target helps create a different shooting scenario. You might shoot downhill at a deer target, and then walk a few steps to shoot at an alligator in a swamp. The shots try to mimic the countless scenarios bowhunters could face in the field. This creates realistic bowhunting practice, but 3-D archery isn’t just for hunters. It’s exciting for any archer because no two shots are the same, and it’s meant to be played with a group of archers.
Participants must bring their own archery gear. Arrows must have field tips, no broadheads. Practice targets open at 8:30am. Meet under the pole barn to start 3-D archery at 9am. Please arrive prior 9 to sign in. Liability waivers are required and must be filled out for each participant once per calendar year. There is a suggested cash/check donation of $10 for participants 16 and up, $5 for 13-15 year-olds, and 12 and under are free. We will never suggest more than $25 for immediate families even if the fees would otherwise add up to more than $25. We will also never turn away participants who for whatever reason are unable to pay.
Note: Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and under 18 must present a liability waiver signed by a parent or guardian (message us for a digital copy).
There is a walk (about ¼ of a mile) to get down to the range along steep unpaved terrain and the range itself is safely and strategically set up along our hiking trail system. For more information email [email protected], or call (352)754-6722.
*Come hungry: Drawn by Grace also offers the opportunity after the program to partake in a buffet style lunch for a suggested donation of $7.
