It might be of some use - RZ Militaria have ( had ? ) a Gebirgsjager target for sale , it was a picture , of an Alpine scene . I've seen others of a similar nature , on ebay . I'm sure the Germans just used " targets " , but I'm also sure they used realistic scenes as well .

Plain targets were used at ranges of 100m, 200m and 300m. 600m was used on occasion for sharpshooters.

Clustered targets were used for machine gunners, and special 50m ranges were for pistols and submashine guns (also 100m used).

Black and white. with fine rings. The black would be the "bulls eye" which is ring 8, 9 and 10. But it depends, sometimes the black part is extended to the 5th ring. But the "bulls-eye" still remains 8 and above.
