Homemade 3D Archery Targets?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone make thier own 3D Archery Targets. Want to see if I can save some money and make a couple 3D Turkey Targets. Seen some people make them with the expandable foam that comes on spray cans and spray it into a old Turkey decoy. Wonder if there are other options and how they hold up?

I've used the spray foam to patch regular 3D targets. It doesn't hold up real well, but if used inside an old decoy maybe it will work better.

If you've got an old decoy you don't mind shooting up, I'd go for it. What do you have to lose?

It's best to use the window and door spray foam it will not expand as much and pop the decoy, also fill it a little at a time otherwise it takes along time for the center to harden up

I would get the most dense spray foam you can buy because the make-up of the regular stuff won't hold up to much shooting. the regular stuff has tons of air bubbles in it not much to stop an arrow.

    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
