3 D target

What has everyone had success with - both for holding arrows and putting up with the weather of being outside for a few seasons. I always bought the cheap ones, but feel like I always got what I paid for

Re: 3 D target

For 3D practice I use a GlenDel Buck. For just shooting I use a Block, both of these seem to hold up to shooting and to the weather. I've had both for a long time and they stay out in the weather.

I find old wrestling mats and cut them into strips. Sandwich between 2-2x8s with thru bolts.

Re: 3 D target

I haven't been near a 3D target or range in years.
Trouble I saw with the use of 3D targets was the "target" was in one spot, increasing wear and cost.
Another problem I saw was archery sources replace whole new targets. It doesn't specialize in repairing targets.

I've been making individual non 3D targets for some 20 years. I don't get the supplies from an archery shop. I get them from an industrial store and adapt the material to archery use.

Not enough archers with a construction background. Guess there aren't many with a construction background who knows industrial repair sources.

Re: 3 D target

I like Rinehart too. But no target will last long if you leave it outside over the winter.

Re: 3 D target

Target storage over the winter can be a problem. I have all McKenzies in my yard. What I do is disconnect the back from the front, but leave them both on their rebar. Put 1 large (55gal) garbage bag over each section. Make sure they are black bags- the problem is not so much cold, rain, or snow, the problem is UV deterioration. As far as 3D target repair of replacement, the new ones have all gone to a replaceable vitals section so your replacement costs are greatly reduced.

Wishing I was at camp!

Re: 3 D target

You pay more but I think you get a better product with Rinehart targets! I've had the same 18/1 for 3yrs and still trying to wear it out!!

Re: 3 D target

Rinehart...hang it high in the garage when not in use...apply a simple rope and pulley for ease.
