    Fita field distances questions

    I'm looking at rebuilding an old fita field course at my club, I was looking for a list of the target distances but couldn't find anything that satisfied me. Is there no more fans or walkups anymore? From the rules I found it looked like there's 1 target for 10-60 meters in 5 meter increments and thats it, no fans, no walkups. Is that right? I have only ever shot one fita field and it was more than 10 years ago. I do remember having fans and walkups then.

    Thanks for your help.

    You may be thinking about an NFAA field course.

    Distances are 20' to 80 yards.

    35 yard fan and 45 yard and 80 yard walk-ups on the Field round.

    28, 32, and 36 yard fans and MANY walk-ups on the Hunter round.

    You can find the rules for NFAA field on their website www.fieldarchery.com

    Nope, not nfaa or ifaa, fita, it is what they shoot in the rest of the world, there is 12 targets per half and is shot in meters, 3 arrows per target and scores 6-5-4-3-2-1. It was easier than the nfaa round (before they introduced the 6 ring anyway) but that's what they shoot up around these parts.

    I've been shooting FITA field since about '93 and there haven't been any fans or walk-ups since at least that time. Can't vouch for the fita field format prior to that date .

    Check the FITA website, FITA Rules, Book 4.

    80 cm target 50 meters , 45 meters, 40 meters
    60 cm target 40 meters, 35 meters, 30 meters
    40 cm target 25 meters, 20 meters, 15 meters
    20cm target 15 meters, 10 meters, 5 meters
    this would be 1/2 a round
    three arrows at each distance 72 arrows 24 targets would be a full round
    then the unmarked round same amount of targets shot closer

    Checking they Fita rules....the unmarked Field Round sounds like a blast! Brutal scores, but it could be alot of fun.
