Target archery

Elizabeth Andrew (left) and Karen Moffatt-McLeod prepare to shoot at the Auckland Archery Club in Cornwall Park, Auckland. Colours used on archery targets vary. Field archery targets are white and black or gold and black, or animal-shaped, and can be either flat or three-dimensional. Target archery uses a yellow, red, blue, black and white target. A shot is scored according to which of the colour bands it hits. Targets can vary – in this case the lower-scoring black and white bands have been omitted.
