Targets are set to replicate what an archer would encounter in the woods. The carp is set on water, turkeys or baboons are placed in trees, a crocodile is in the water, skunks and rabbits are placed on logs. Archers will shoot out of four different tower stands and occasionally from turkey blinds. There are also moving targets such as a bear climbing a tree, a running deer or bear and a walking fox or bobcat. There are also string targets set for the archer to stalk his prey. This hunter will start at one stake and walk forward to determine where to shoot at the target. The archer cannot go back and must shoot before reaching the second stake. Targets are set 5 to 50 yards with three different yardage stakes available.
