Naseby Clout Shoot Dec 2019 – Review and Results

As the year drew to a close, the final archery shoot of the year took place at the Naseby Battlefield site.

Clout shooting is where the target is at the limit of your bow’s reach, and hence you are ‘arching’ and shooting at roughly 45 degrees in order to reach your target. The target is usually a flag, and scoring is obtained by an arrows distance from it.

Seven ends were shot, with the medium target at a range if 103 paces, and the long range target at 136 paces. Closest to each target overall won er, a Christmas Pudding. No expense spared here!
The results, which will count towards the Archer of Wolfage Manor title, are:

Excellent shooting in rather swirly conditions! Well done to everyone who won Christmas puddings, and those who travelled from distance to be there.
