What is Field Archery?
Field archery involves shooting at targets of varying and often unmarked distance, typically in woodland and rough terrain. As well as being a sport in its own right, it can be used to improve the techniques and abilities required for bowhunting in a realistic outdoor setting. Archers sometimes refer to the additional skills required to deal with challenging terrain and lighting as “fieldcraft”.
A Sport for all Ages and Abilities
Whatever your age you can become a Field Archer. Field Archery is a sport that can be enjoyed by all as it’s both competitive and socially rewarding. Part of the pleasure of Field Archery is the great banter and all the interesting people you meet as a result of shooting in mixed groups. Novice or experienced, amateur or professional you’ll be made to feel welcome at our club.
As a club we are all excited about the proposed new Gilmerton Gateway development which if it gets the go ahead will include a brand new custom built community hub/archery centre.
