Delta Targets Challenge

Thirty four archers took to the range on a cool day to test their skills against the difficult Delta targets. These particular type of coloured animal targets are a challenge due to the life like location, size and shape of the kill and wound zones. For instance the turkey target would have a kill zone no larger than a fifty cent piece and with the kill zone invisible from 20+metres makes the target very testing. On the larger targets the heart or kill zone is often much lower that one would expect and with a very small margin for error on the low side if you go low you will often score a miss instead of getting even a hit for a minimum score of ten points.
The format consisted of a three arrow all count with each score zone being recored as 20 points for a kill, 15 for a wound and 10 for a hit.
The mens open division was close with John Clark edging out Steve Jaeger and Ben Ireland who deadheated for second place. Michael Rommer was back to his old form and took out the cubs barebow easily.
With the tougher delta targets scores were well down on what a standard 3 arrow shoot on ABA paper would result in but it was deffinatley good practice for the Branch 3D titles to be shot at Wyong nex tweekend.
