Our archery sessions begin with safety information and group instruction on how to use the equipment. Then in pairs, you will first of all use the longbows and shoot at the bosses. Although some of you would like to use your own boss as a target, we most definitely do not permit that!!! The bosses in question are traditional archery targets with the coloured circles - gold in the centre scoring the most points. You have unlimited shots and your instructor will be on hand to advise on technique so the only thing stopping you scoring big points is you!!!

You will then move onto the recurve bows and a different type of target - this time it will be 3D archery targets - life size animals. Normally we would encourage you to eat what you kill but a big rubber deer might not be too tasty - save your appetite for a bite to eat in our cafe. Again you will have unlimited arrows - perfect practice for the end of the session where your skills will be put to the test in a competition.

Important information: Full equipment hire is included within the cost of your package.
