Home made targets

Postby choclab » Thu Mar 23, 2006 7:30 pm

What are some of the home made targets you guys make. I have used burlap stuffed with plastic, pressed haybales, and cardboard squished together. For durability I like the burlap, it lasted forever and costed about 5-10 dollars to make. If you guys have alot of good ideas I might make this thread a sticky.

I am gonna build this, but bigger for a stationary.

Gophers in the spring - best target out there.

I get stireen (sp) blocks about 2 ft sq and use them a fair amount. Another is cutting ceiling tiles in half and using 2 x 6 on top and bottom with all thread to compress - I have this one for quite awhile in an area out of the rain.

Mainly hay bales grownin up in the country, as a kid i remember my dad had a hugh stirofoam block that lasted forever. You can get some boxes form behind stores but you have to pack them up real tight. Also used milk jug and shot into sand banks but thats will junk arrows though my carbons only get the best THE BLOCK that is. :thumbsup:

Also.....if you don't have a hay press near by to press your bales you can take 2 ratchet straps and squish the hell out of the hay bales that way.

Stuff a burlap sack with old clothes. Field points only.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

nerf socer ball kick it around the field and shoot it with judos, good way to keep up on judging yardages
