Stump Shooting

Select random objects, such as dead stumps or clumps of dirt, for practice shots. To gauge the yardage, pace off the distance to each target.

Yukon Roving

With a group of hunting companions, place 3-D animal targets in a variety of locations in a hunting area. Each person takes one shot at each target—you and your friends take turns selecting the location and distance. You score five points for a hit in the vital area and lose 15 points for a hit anywhere else on the animal. There is no penalty if a shot misses or is not taken. Long shots and shots through heavy brush or vegetation should not be taken because you are trying to simulate responsible bowhunting scenarios.
