Broadhead Target Question

4 posts in this topic

I am in the market for a new archery target. I will be shooting primarily field tips, as I only shoot my broadheads a few times right before season to make sure their flight is consistent with my field tips. I have used the black hole previously, and it worked well, however I would be interested to see what others have used and had good luck with recently. I have been taking a close look at the block fusion, and it seems like they might hold up a little better than a target with exposed foam layers, just wondering if it is worth the extra cost.

Any thoughts, experiences or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

I bought the gander broadhead target last spring and it is still stopping my arrows wich is the longest I have ever had a target last. And my hunting bow I shoot broadheads out of all year,I never switch to field points it's just easier to leave it sighted in and practice with broadheads so that target has thousands of broadhead holes in it.

I bought the gander mountain block target, the Yellowjacket, and also the 18:1 Rhinhart target. To date the Rhinhart is my favorite broadhead and field point target. If you just shot field points the Rhinhart target would never wear out. I also like it because it's easy to grab and practice with before I go out hunting.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
