If you and your merry band of men like the idea of hamming around like Robin Hood, then you will love this stag weekend activity. More difficult than it looks to even hit the target though, you’ll never a steady hand and will need to everything the instructor says. So that definitely means watching the booze the night before this one!
The bow and arrow has been around for pretty much as long as us humans and has been instrumental in assisting man to make sure there is meat on the table for dinner. Not a lot has changed in its design over the centuries, but then again why would you want to reinvent the wheel? Robin Hood is probably the most famous fictional archer, even perfecting his shot to splitting arrows in two. William Tell was equally skilled but preferred a cross-bow, apples, and shooting at kids.
You and your mates however will get the more socially acceptable and far less weird option of taking aim at targets. There will be a safety and instructional talk before you begin, so make sure you pay attention and take note of any tips. Dependant on your group size you may have to take turns but everyone will be kitted out with the proper equipment (just make sure to wear clothing and outwear suitable for the outdoors).
If you fancy mixing things up a bit though, how about taking part in some Xtreme Archery on the stag do? It’s a combination of archery and dodgeball and is a newcomer to the stag activity scene that’s ideal for those lads that want an adrenaline packed weekend! You’ll be given a safety briefing from an experienced instructor and provided with all the necessary safety equipment, before being split into teams where you’ll face off across a purpose built field layout.
Each team gets five specially designed bunkers, and five target cones that are placed in front of each bunker which contain a ball. It’s a strategy game based on point scoring, where players will have the chance to shoot at one another with specially designed arrows for a good old fashioned shoot em’ up – but don’t worry, because the arrows you’ll be using have a round rubber tip which absorbs the impact when it hits a player, so you’ll be safe and there’s no chance of severing your mates’ major arteries.
There will be 30 points awarded for each eliminated player and 50 points for a targeted cone. The game ends when either all the players have been eliminated, all cones have been hit, or the time runs out - Let the battle commence!
Newcastle know how to party and that's exactly what we wanted in a stag do destination!
The package put together by The Stag Company was spot on with the accommodation just what was needed....a comfy nights sleep (well a couple of hours) and a bit of breakie. The club entry on the first night was spot on and gave us an idea of why to expect the following night. The whole booking and payment experience was perfect and the online system makes life easy. All in all a 10 out of 10 experience. - Kyle Matravers (Stag Company Trust Pilot)
