Rules for Scoring
Scoring takes place after each ‘end’ (look it up in the glossary). Arrows are scored according to their position in the target face. If the shaft of an arrow touches the dividing line between two scoring rings, that arrow always scores the higher value. The scoring value of a 5-color target face is from 10 at the center of the face, to 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, & 1 for each ring. There may be a smaller ring within a bullseye also, this is used for compound bows – handicapping their technology advantage in some competitions. This may be just a 10 score or may be awarded 11 points or an “X” value in some games. Lots of games in archery, discover each competition’s rules before entering.
