HOMEMADE BROADHEAD TARGET

DOES ANYONE HAVE A PICTURE OR IDEA FOR A HOMEMADE BROADHEAD TARGET? I THOUGHT ABOUT BUYING SOME PADDED INSULATION IN BAGS AND COMPRESSING THEM.

THIS HOW I WACK'UM, PACK'UM AND STACK'UM.

Re: HOMEMADE BROADHEAD TARGET

I thought about buying the spray foam insulation and filling a box lined with a garbage bag. after the foam cures remove it from the box and bag then paint on the targets.

there is a good design on youtube it uses carpet pieces compressed but not sure how well it will work for broadheads.

Re: HOMEMADE BROADHEAD TARGET

for broadheads or field points. field points are pretty easy, broadheads are more challenging.

Sand mound. Cheap and readily available. It will dull your heads so use old b-heads.

by the time you buy enough spray foam to fill it you could by a BH target. It took me 5 cans to fill a couple of 4in by 4 ft pcv pipes for my beaver float set. it won't go as far as you think.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!

Re: HOMEMADE BROADHEAD TARGET

another idea would be to buy a sheet of that blue foam from Lowes and cut to the size you want and glue the pieces together.

I think the carpet would be the cheapest to make. here's a link to the video.

Re: HOMEMADE BROADHEAD TARGET

Was using homemade archery targets, fifteen years before the recession. In fact, never bought a new fancy archery target.

Use foam insulation from the building supply stores, cut up into 2' x 2' squares. I put newspaper between the 2' x 2' sheets. Gives a little more support. Use masking tape to fasten the sides.

A thin, light target, that I can carry with my bow to my hidden private sites. Nothing is left behind for a trespasser to discover. Carry in; carry out.

Braced by sticks, the arrow is stopped, but not completely embedded in foam plastic. After a target is hit by a broadhead fired arrow, I merely have to unscrew the exposed broadhead, causing less damage to the foam when pulling out the arrow.

Instead of having a target as long as the arrow, I only use enough foam and paper to stop the arrow completely. With enough distance to protect the vanes.

Re: HOMEMADE BROADHEAD TARGET

I've heard of that idea before... sounds cheap an easy. How long do they last for you?

Where have you been? I had to work late... Oh these? Yeah, it was 'camo day' at work again .
