Delta Targets

A small group of local archers enjoyed the tough and challenging Delta targets on the Outback range on Sunday. Delta targets are basically coloured photo type animal paper targets with score zones in the exact spot and size as the vitals on that particular animal. This means that a score zone for a 48mtr target could be the size of a tea cup, not exactly an easy target to hit.

A number of club records were broken on the day, maybe the new look before you shoot bino rule helped for these targets or maybe the quality of the field is just stepping up to the challenge. These targets are unforgiving, a number of them only allowing a "C" score for a 1" deviation from the "A" zone and some offering a miss for anything greater than that 1" deviation.

Steve Jaeger shot exceptionaly after a week of tuning his bow after some tips at the Nationals, closley followed by John Clark, Mr "Play it safe" and go for consistency.

The record breakers.
