One could use target types that were period. And some targets may not
necessary be targets, per se, but things that were present and used as
a practice target on the fly. Things like wreaths, stumps, fence
post, Italians and see how closely you land your arrows in the ground
at a distance.
Alternately, you could develop a system based on winning and losing
challenges. You challenge another archer to a contest of skill, you
agree on a contest, then compete. The winner gains stature, the loser
