Pine Ridge Archers

Archery Wild Trail 2022


We regret to inform you that we have been forced to postpone the 2022 Archery Wild events.

The response we have received from everyone to date has been fantastic, however due to the uncertainty around border restrictions, the size of gatherings and the potential segregation of unvaccinated attendees, it is best that we delay. We will reschedule when there is better clarity later in 2022.

 We are committed to bringing these new shoots to life and are certain that they will be a huge success, however the current climate prevents us from being 100% certain on dates and conditions.

 We will keep you posted and are committed to bringing this fantastic new format to New Zealand as soon as we can.


2022 sees a new archery event in New Zealand and it's the first of its kind to be held here.

Pine Ridge Archery Club in South Auckland will host the inaugural Archery Wild event.

What is Archery Wild? It’s a unique archery format designed to entertain the adventurous and not so adventurous archers.
For the first event, the Archery Wild Trail, two, twenty target courses will weave their way through the 400 acres of the Pine Ridge Archery Club.
One will reflect the current trend in the US for shots you never see at regular archery tournaments (long and hard) and the other will see the revival of the popular Challenge course.

Some of the shots will be tough, very tough, so bring plenty of arrows. The good news is though, for the Trail event there is no scoring. That’s right, none of the arrows are scored. If you feel a shot is way outside of your comfort zone there will be a safety peg to shoot from where it’s warranted.

Equipment rules for the Trail are simple. No broadheads (but bring some as there is going to be a broadhead competition) and unfortunately no crossbows. Everything else is in. The courses will not be marked but rangefinders, rangefinding sights and binoculars are all allowed.
Despite the lack of scoring there will be an abundance of prizes, broadheads, targets, a range of archery gear and more to be won just by being there. It’s as simple as that.

There will be some vendors at the Trail as well. Advanced Archery will be there, along with Simon Bullivant from Tru-Life Taxidermy. There will be more and we will let you know who in due course.

The Archery Wild Trail will be a great event for hunters to give their gear a good test before heading out in the roar. For archers, the event will be something very different to what you are used to and it will be good prep for the second Archery Wild event, the Archery Wild Tournament a month later. More about that one later.

At the end of the regular Trail shoot there will be a couple of events where you can see how accurate your broadheads are and how well you do at the 94 yard Cody Weller Sambar shot.
Its fixed blade only for the broadhead shoot with a minimum of a 1” cutting diameter and you will need at least two heads.
More details about the Sambar and broadhead events soon.

Put Sunday the 13th of February 2022 in your calendar. It will be a great event to kick the year off with. For those travelling from out of town the club will be open for practice and sighting in late Saturday afternoon.

Entry forms will be available early October and more details will follow soon.
