Archery within the SCA falls into two broad categories, which within the Barony are both under the view of the Archery Marshall.
Target Archery is typically participated in with longbows or recurve bows, shooting at stationary targets from a series of standardised ranges. This form of archery has a lower barrier to entry than most of the arts martial but can be extremely rewarding.
Combat Archery mixes armoured fighters, typically those armed with ‘heavy’ weapons such as swords and shields, with armoured archers armed with bows and arrows or with ranged weapons. This type of archery usually occurs within the confines of war scenarios.
