GROUND ARCHERY GAMES

Four Winds
  • Shooters take turns shooting at a standard target face.
  • Shooters must hit all 4 outside corners and then the bullseye.
  • First shooter to finish with a bullseye wins!
 
Tic Tac Toe (Nomad Warrior favorite)
  • Two shooters take turns shooting at a target face with the # Tic Tac Toe pattern on it.
  • Play until one shooter wins.
  • Repeat as brackets if there are multiple shooters, moving the target out a meter or two each round until there is a victor.

Sherwood Forest Mounted Archers
(Oregon)
"Although we are pretty new to the HAUSA scene, Sherwood Forest Mounted Archers recently celebrated our one year anniversary as a club - and what a year it has been! We've grown from just a handful of folks interested in learning more about this thing called mounted archery, to a full blown club boasting 25 members. Highlights for 2017 for our club include another successful demo at our State Fair, which yielded a crowd of 400+ and the Pacific Northwest's first ever HAUSA Competition (co-hosted with our neighbors to the North, the Northwest Nomad Warriors)."

- Megan Hanselman, Sherwood Forest Mounted Archers
Northwest Nomad Warriors
(Washington)
"2017 was a fantastic year for the Northwest Nomad Warriors, filled with a ton of amazing accomplishments. But, when it comes to highlights, it has to be teaming up with our sister club, Sherwood Forest Mounted Archers, and putting on the PNW Playday event. (Horse Archery USA's first event in the West!) Canter, Walk/Trot, and Ground game competitions were offered, and all three events were full. Good times were had by all! Also high on the list of top moments was the release of the Nomad Horsebow, a brand new custom model bow designed, in cooperation with Master Li of Alibow, to be as close to the 'Perfect' Horsebow available. We are, quite simply, in awe with how well this little beauty of a bow performs!​"
