What is a 420 target? - When you register, we will send you some targets. This target, copyrighted by Creekwood Archery in 2008 a  420 TARGET  named because 420 points is the maximum score a archer can achieve. The target is one that keeps challenging the archer no matter what his ability is, and allows him to win even if he has shot an arrow he is not happy with. It is a target which can be shot as a single spot or a five spot target, your choice.

The five spot 420 target there are 5 scoring circles with 3 scoring rings in each circle: The outer blue ring has a score of 4 points. The arrow must touch the blue ring to score. The shading inside this blue ring has no different scoring value and is only there to draw your attention to the center of the entire target. The grey center has a score of 5 points and the arrow must touch it to score 5 points. The white X ring inside the center grey circle has a score of 6 points. The arrow must touch any part of the line making the X ring. The last scoring possibility is an Inside X which is accomplished by the arrow being inside the line making the white X ring without touching it, thus being called an Inside X which has a score of 7 points. The "X" ring is smaller than a regular NFAA 5 spot. On the 5 spot, only 1 arrow per scoring circle is allowed. If more than 1 arrow is in a circle the lowest one is counted.

The single spot 420 target there are 5 scoring rings:
           The outer blue ring has a score of 1 point. The arrow must be in or touch the blue ring. The second most outer blue ring including the outer most white ring has a score of 2 points. The arrow must be in the second most outer blue ring or touch the white ring surrounding it. The shading inside this blue ring has no different scoring value and is only there to draw your attention to the center of the entire target. The third most outer blue ring including the outer most white ring has a score of 3 points. The arrow must be in the third most outer blue ring or touch the white ring surrounding it. The shading inside this blue ring has no different scoring value and is only there to draw your attention to the center of the entire target. The inner most blue ring including the white ring outside of it has a score of 4 points. The arrow must be in the inner most blue ring or touch the white ring surrounding it. The shading inside this blue ring has no different scoring value and is only there to draw your attention to the center of the entire target. The grey center has a score of 5 points and the arrow must touch it to score 5 points. The white X ring inside the center grey circle has a score of 6 points. The arrow must touch any part of the line making the X ring. The last scoring possibility is an Inside X which is accomplished by the arrow being inside the line making the white X ring without touching it, thus being called an Inside X which has a score of 7 points. The "X" ring is smaller than a regular NFAA 5 spot. If more than 5 arrows are shot, your 5 lowest scoring arrows are counted. Click HERE for a bigger picture of the single spot.
         The target is shot in three total games consisting of four ends of five arrows each for a total of 60 arrows. Two rounds of practice are shot before the scoring begins. Scoring goes like this: First you call your total number of Xs including IXs, then you call the total number of IXs, and then you call the total score (5s & 4s for the 5 spot target or 5s, 4s, 3s, 2s, and 1s for the single spot target). The addition of those three numbers gives you the score for that end. A perfect end would be 5 IX or a total of 35 points. A perfect game would be 20 IX or 140 points. A perfect TARGET or 3 games would be 420. LIFE  IS  GOOD !
         At the end of the game you total three numbers. The first one is your total numerical score which can be a at best 300 points (60 arrows times 5 points each). The second number you add in is the total number of Xs you shot which can be at best 60 points. And finally the last number you add in is the total number of Inside Xs which at best could be another 60 points.
Numerical score    300
Total Xs                 60
Total Inside X         60
  (Because the Inside Xs are counted twice as Xs and Inside Xs, thats how they achieve 7 point status.)
                                420
         With the current NFAA 300 score 5 spot or single spot target when a good archer shoots a 4, he knows he cant win unless all the other good shooters follow suit. With the 420 TARGET a 4 is not the end of your day at all. The best man or women who shots the best that day will be the winner. Everyone says archery is 95% mental and the 420 TARGET is a mentally friendly target, which keeps challenging you no matter what your ability is. As we always say at Creekwood Archery, "SHOOT 'EM IN THE MIDDLE".
LIFE  IS  GOOD !
