      Randal,

      So in essense your doing nothing more than shooting a target at 30 yards ? Seems a rather disapointing shoot to me if that's all there is to it.

      Taslen,

      As I understand it, the original intent was that the target face is 30 yards down range, and it has the hole in it, and you get more points for getting your arrows through that hole than for hitting the target itself. Basically, the "bull's eye" is a hole rather than a circle.

      As I understand the rewritten rules, the hole is replaced by a circle drawn or painted on the target face.

      I wonder now why both couldn't be allowed, so that people who were willing to deal with cutting the center out of the target backing, figuring out how to support it without the center leg I see on so many butt stands, and chasing down arrows that go through the hole could do so (and how do you tell the difference between pass throughs and misses?). I also wonder whether I am just turning into a trouble maker in my old age!
