    Basically, what you already said: It's civilian and for hunters.

    It's simply a decorative hat badge.

    It is probably a badge for a Schützenverein, shooting
    union or association, as they used very often the target
    as symbol. I have checked various manufacturers-catalogues,
    but the exact one as shown in post 1 is not amongst them.

    In combination with the green "rosette" it is possible it was
    worn with the specific hat.
