Calculating calorie burn for unconventional sport

With all the specifics can I calculate a better estimate of how many calories I burn doing archery than online calculators (that give me figures as low as 220 and as high as 500 calories per hour)

If I know my weight, my draw weight, how many arrows I shot, how far away the target is and how many times I walked there and back can I calculate a fairly accurate figure?
Its mostly for curiousity but also for determining how many extra calories I should consume on training days - I don't want to fall into that trap of overconsuming due to exercise but I also dont want to be undernourished and hurt my performance/progress
