5 spot scoring question for a newbie.

815 11
Would this be considered a 19 or a 23? I was aiming for the lower left dot and completely missed and hit the blue on the middle dot. Sorry for the dumb question I just got started in archery last week. Thanks!

it's a 23.

not sure how long ago they dropped the one arrow per circle rule but it's any scoring ring counts now.

This right here...you can shoot all 5 of your arrows into the center spot if you wanted to or two in each top and one in the center, however you like. As long as you only shoot 5 arrows at your target where ever they hit is your score.

It's a 23. Under NFAA rules, you can stack all of the arrows into 1 spot without penalty (other than probably wrecking a couple of arrows).

It'd be scored as a 23, but being honest with yourself, knowing you missed the target you aimed at, I'd score it a 19 myself.
I scored it as a 19 because I knew I missed what I was aiming at.
