This challenging style of archery can be practised with any bow type, although recurve bows and compound bows are more commonly used. Field archery may take place in a forest setting, or in a bushland, woodland or rough terrain environment and involves shooting at a set number of stationary outdoor targets of varying marked and unmarked distances and angles, each with a different size target face.

During a course of field archery, an archer may shoot along a number of different gradients – flat, upwards or downwards. The more skilled an archer is at navigating the many variables at play in field archery, the more likely it is they will achieve a high score.
