Field archery is better than Olympic Archery

I was recently shown Field Archery in a video by Lindybeige. Honestly, it turns archery into much more of a game, than it does a sport- but for that I think it's cooler. It also matches up much more with the Robin Hood or medieval combat idea of what archery is.

But then this begs the question of the difference between a sport and a game. I would argue the main distinguishing factor is a sport is a game that can be played competitively. Probably disagrees with common logic, but a lot of Sports TV Networks consider both Chess and Poker to be sports, which by the fallacy of Appealing to Authority(and because I do think they both are sports despite this), I'll say this can be extended to competitive games.

In the case of field archery, it's much closer to a game, as the exact rules change from organisation to organisation, and the circumstances surrounding the game are always different.
