Block vs Buck Target

Postby FloridaFowler » Tue Sep 14, 2010 12:15 pm

I've wondered if any of you have noticed a difference in your shot placement on live deer by switching from a block target to a 3D deer target. In theory, if you can hit your mark, it shouldn't make a difference (as long as you know where to aim based on distance, angle, etc). Thoughts? :huh:

No difference for me. But my heart beats faster for some reason when I see the real thing. :yes:

I would hope so. Otherwise, you might want to consult a doctor. Can't say I've ever had a rush patterning a turkey gun or shooting clays, so I think that's how it's supposed to work! :thumbsup:

I shoot traditional gear and the only difference I've noticed is that using a deer target can help with range estimation in certain circumstances. If you don't use a rangefinder and get a shot in an open field/terrain with no reference points other than the deer you're shooting at it can be tricky at times. Using a deer target gets you accustomed to judging yardage on a deer sized/shaped target.
