In an effort to further enhance the archery experience for youth archers in Alabama, ADCNR’s Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries is encouraging 3D target shooting. In 3D Archery, archers shoot at a three-dimensional target that looks like an animal and is usually made of foam. The targets mimic different animals and can vary in size depending on the animal it represents. The targets can either be set up indoors or along an outdoor course resembling a hiking trail.
The NASP 3D/IBO Program is a fast-growing and challenging next step for NASP schools.
- Students shoot at targets simulating wild turkey, coyote, bear, antelope, deer, and mountain sheep.
- Students start by shooting five practice arrows. Instead of knowing the exact range of each of the six targets, the targets are placed on a line diagonal to the shooting line.
- The turkey is placed the closest, at 10 meters. The sheep is placed at 15 meters. The other four animals are placed at various distances between the turkey and the sheep.
- The nine and 10 rings on the 3D target are the same size as the nine and 10 rings on a bullseye target. This minimizes changes for the experienced NASP archer.
