BRC Hunters Archery League Introduction

One Round will consist  of two Archers shooting two Arrows from a station at the target for that station. ( Example –  Target # 1 is shot from Station #1 ) Shooters will alternate between each shot. Everyone will wait behind the shooting line until all archers are finished shooting and the Range Cold signal is given. 

Each target will indicate the score.( See example below ) Scores must be recorded by an opposing archer and arrows will be pulled after all have been scored. All arrows must be stuck in the target to score except for arrows that pass through the target.  Score for pass throughs are determined by the group. If an arrow is on a line it is scored with the higher score.
