In archery, the archer shoots his arrows at a target. The archery target itself is composed of two distinct elements: the support and the target faces. The target face comes in several types and cannot be dissociated from the target.
Target face characteristics
For archery, there are several types of targets. There are classic models and more or less evolved models such as 2D and 3D targets. These often represent animals. Whatever the type of target, it is composed of two parts: the support, also called the target wall, and the target faces. The latter is made of several layers of glued paper, reinforced by a mesh of threads. These target faces have different areas. These are delimited by a line called a cord. In some models, the cord is called "favorable". In archery jargon, this means that if the arrow hits a cord, it marks the points in the area above the cord.
