Stupid Question # 298,359,872 (since I Hunt and shoot 3-D)

I was looking at a copy of the North Carolina NCFAA Indoor schedule. What is the difference between NFAA 300, Vegas 300, Vegas 450, and Vegas 600 Rounds.

my only comment is that I thought you could only shoot 1 arrow into each spot of the multi-spot face whether it be a vegas round or an NFAA round.

Clarification please:confused:

You can shoot more than one arrow into a single spot on a multi spot face. You don't have to shoot one arrow per spot. A lot of people think that you have to shoot one arrow per spot.

An archer may shoot any of the 4 spot or 5 spot targets in any order and shoot as many arrows into a spot as the archer dersires, not to exceed the prescribed number of arrows per end.

The NFAA Rules had been changed a couple years back to allow archers to shoot multiple arrows into each spot, not to exceed the prescribed number of arrows per end.

I know the original question was about NFAA 300 and Vegas rounds, but I was wondering about the 18 meter FITA rounds. The target is the same as the Vegas target. I was told though that you may only shoot one arrow per spot (unlike the NFAA and Vegas) and also that they must be shot in order with numbered arrows used in order. Is this correct? I am trying to get comfortable with the order of the targets requested and also am being more careful to use my arrows in the correct order. For compound bows I was also told that the small X ring will be the only 10 point score.

Still learning. Thank you.

The NAA does only allow one arrow per target on the multiple face targets. They require all arrows to be marked with the shooters initials on the shaft so they can be identified during scoring if needed. However they don't require that you shoot them in any numerical order and you may shoot the 3 spots in any order you choose, so long as you shoot one arrow at each scoring face. Yes for compound shooters the smallest x ring is the 10 when scoring in the NAA, the remainder of the gold is a 9.

Just an additional fyi, NFAA is, as far as I know, the only org. that permits multiple arrows per spot on the multi-spot targets. Vegas is also 1 arrow per spot similar to the NAA for multi-spot target faces.
