In a relaxed easy going atmosphere you will be introduced to Field Archery in which we try to simulate the art of hunting in English woodlands.
Of course we do not hunt real animals. Instead we use a variety of two dimensional and three dimensional targets placed in a beautiful woodland setting. Archers may shoot at targets of varying sizes, and the level of skill needed can be varied by setting targets over more difficult terrain. With emphasis on safety, you will be taught how to use your equipment correctly. After some practice you will have a chance to move on to shooting over varying distances, and perhaps venturing onto the "hunting trail". Field Archery can be done as a full day activity.
