The target consists of self-made leather balls arranged in a row on the ground. The arrow, equipped with a large arrowhead, has to hit the ground immediately in front of the row in order to achieve the highest impact. It is the goal to destroy the target most effectively, preferably by hitting the balls near the center of the row.
