The Western target archery round is an Archery GB round that is shot at yard/imperial distances. You need to shoot 2 different distances in the Western round and you only get 6 arrows of sighters (one end) at the longest distance.
the Western is shot on a full size 122cm target face and you score the round using 5 zones scoring. This means working with the coloured bands of the archery target. So 9 for gold, 7 for red, 5 for blue, 3 for black and 1 for white.
The total arrow count on the Western round is 96 arrows and the maximum score you can get is 864.
You shoot 48 arrows in ends of 6 at the longer 1st distance and the same again at the second shorter distance.
Here are the different round distances you can shoot and their names:
New Western – 100 yards and 80 yards
