I do not believe any such standards exist outside of the IKAC and Royal
Rounds. Wands change from event to event, slots get shorter and taller,
distances change. Actually, the 60cm FITA target is the only 'legal'
target that doesn't change from event to event. Maybe a new inter-Kingdom
shoot needs to be developed that uses more novel targets to compare archers
from across the globe?
- The Space you need is 5-10 yards but what you have to think about is where
the arrows CAN go. You need a safety zone behind the target. 10-12 foot
high concrete wall , a wall of a building, in the basement, in the garage,
and 100yards of empty park will work. The neighbors house, a street, a big
rose bush, at a window,WILL NOT WORK. If you cannot get to a range pull the
bow 100 times to full draw and letting it down(slowely) is good practice.
