Field Archery Round (World Archery), 45# Longbow

Today I did a WA Field Archery round with my 45# Longbow. It is a nice change for me and a good training, because I normally only shoot 3d courses. Field Archery is very interesting: you have to shoot 3 good arrows consecutively, which is not easy, especially not on the birdies (the smallest targets). There can be targets with a known distance (written on the peck) and targets with an unknown distance. For Longbow shooters, 40m (known) and 35m (unknown) is the maximum distance in Field Archery. More info about WA Field Archery can be found here:

What is field archery?

Field archery is shot in three divisions (compound, recurve and barebow). Archers shoot from marked (known) and unmarked (unknown) distances, from 5 to 60 meters, depending on the division (requires shooting uphill and downhill, often with varying positions for the feet). The arrow flight differs on a given distance because of the angle of the shot, which means that the archer must know by experience how much to subtract or add when shooting up or downhill, across a gully, etc. The size of the target varies (with diameters of 20 -- 40 -- 60 -- 80cm). The target faces have six scoring zones.
At the world championships, in qualifications, archers shoot 24 targets from marked distances and 24 targets from unmarked distances. The top sixteen competitors in each division and class move to the 1/8 elimination round and shoot 12 marked targets. The top eight competitors then advance to the quarterfinals and shoot eight new targets. In the semifinals and medal finals, the top four competitors in each class and division shoot matches consisting of 4 marked targets.
