I'm looking to get into target archery but I'm sorta confused on all the different rules that come along with it.

I would be shooting compound, and (question 1: what different distances are there)

2: what's normal draw weight, arrow size and does everyone use a fixed single pin sight like a sureloc?

3: what's an average score for a backyard shooter just going to have fun?

I just got a 2000... something? Hoyt ultratec 2000, has a stab but that's it. Will this be a viable option or should I just hang it on the wall (full heritage finish)
I have been shooting from 60 meters for practice, and I'm not 100% sure if that's even a distance to shoot at. Below I put a picture of my last 3 times shooting. Any opinions, help or comment will be appreciated!

Thanks peeps!

That's good for starters.
Is that a compound bow?
Use target tips good to go.
Go to the nearest target range
For bows and practice different
Distance. ,20, 30, 40 50 yards and on. Don't let arrows fly wild. For safety reasons. Make sure you can hit the targets. Start with 20, 30 yards work your way up.
