Target archery is the type of archery practiced at the Olympics, and is the version most beginners learn first. Archers shoot a set number of arrows at targets set at specified distances on a flat surface.
A field archery course is set up over woodland and rough terrain. Archers shoot a specified number of arrows at different targets in sequence.
Flight archery is shooting an arrow over the longest possible distance. There is no target, but it does require a very large, flat area - something the size of an aerodrome.
Clout archery is an ancient form of archery that was used as military training in the Middle Ages. The target is the clout, which is a small flag on a vertical stick, stuck in the ground and placed up to 160 metres away.
