bring people back in.
- A player is dubbed “out” if he/she is hit in any part of the body; this includes the head and the bow itself. If a player catches an arrow during play, the person that shot the arrow on the opposing team is out. A player who is out on the same team as the player that caught the arrow, can come back into play.
