Archery Targets

Here are a couple of targets you can print for practicing at different yardages. 

One is your standard circle target with a slight variation.  The goal is to keep the group in the appropriate size circle based on the yardage.  For every 10 yards, your group should be with the inch circle corresponding.  For example, if you are shooting from 40 yards, you should group in the 4 inch circle.

The second target is slightly different.  It has 5 circles. You can start either with the 1 or the 5 circle, and work your way out or in accordingly shooting one arrow at each circle.  Each number is equivalent to 10 yard increments based on the same practice theory as above. (1=10 yards, 2=20 yards, etc.)
