Bullseye is one of the events in Hyperflite Skyhoundz DiscDogathon series of games for your disc dogs. Bullseye is a fast-paced game that last 60 seconds. The object is to score as many points as possible in 60 seconds. Teams are allowed to use either one or two discs when playing. If a handler uses two discs, it is crucial that your disc dog can bring each disc back to the center of the throwing circle in order to get in the most throws possible.
Player Strategy: Personally I have found when competing in Bullseye & using two discs that it is important to not pay attention to your dog catching your throws rather to pay more attention to having your next throw ready. My personal highest scores have been obtained by throwing the 1st disc and ignoring my dog and the catch completely in order to make sure I am in the throwing circle with the 2nd disc in hand and ready to throw…. then rinse and repeat.
Scoring zones and field dimensions are depicted in the picture above. Teams may use two discs to complete throws in any direction. The thrower and the canine must be within the throwing circle before time commences. Thereafter, the thrower and canine may move freely about the field to catch and/or retrieve discs. All throws must be made from within the throwing circle. Competitors receive one minute to score as many points as they can.
Here are a couple of videos of teams competing in Bullseye to give you a sense of how the game is played during a competition.
