Object of the game – Use you bow to shoot arrows at either the opposing team or the targets. Whichever team eliminates all the players or five spots in the target first win the game.
If a teammate either catches an arrow or knocks one of the five spot targets completely out of the target on the opposing team then an eliminated player on your team may re‐enter the game in the order they were eliminated.
Continue playing this way either until all targets or players are all eliminated on one team.
We do not encourage headshots however they occasionally happen. If the referee notices someone continuously shooting at the head, they will be asked to leave the field and not be able to return and play for this event. If an arrow hits your bow it does not count, if it bounces off ground or obstacle first is does not count. however the referee has the final say and there will be no arguments or you will be asked to leave the field.
