The Wight Company
of Field Archers

Annual Open Trophy weekend

pheasant

We are a traditional bow and wooden arrow only club, but once a year on the last weekend in June we are pleased to invite those wishing to shoot compounds and sighted recurves to join us on our beautiful Island for our annual shoot.

Traditional archers are of course still very welcome.  Aluminium or wooden arrows only, sorry no carbon arrows or crossbows.

The shoot will consist of two days challenging field shooting in a beautiful, well contoured woodland location.
 

Saturday morning will be one round (mixture of standard big game and single shot scoring) of at least 25 3Ds, including several multi shots, eg flock of ducks,
deer herd, predator and prey, sloth of bears. The afternoon will be a one shot Bowhunter round from a different peg.

Sunday morning will be another chance to do the course, this time from a third set of pegs to give you a further challenge, followed by presentation of trophies
and medals in the early afternoon, allowing you to get a ferry home late afternoon.
