Archery Targets

Greetings, I'm looking for a backyard archery target. I'm torn between block or lifelike. Reason I ask, I've only used an indoor range and was curious as to which type will hold up better outdoors and what type would actually be more fun? Anyway, as always any and all info is greatly appreciated!
Thanks....

Rineharts are the best targets made.....

Re: Archery Targets

I bought a Rinehart 18 - 1 backyard target this year.
Love it, it's really holding up well and I can move
it aroung under a ladder stand I have set up for
shooting at different yardages.

Re: Archery Targets

I bought an 18-1 this year as well....its holding up great...I put a lot of broad heads in it and doubt I can shoot it out within a year....if you do its a free replacement....fine print says 3" hole on all 18 sides that the arrow buries upto or past fletchings...

Re: Archery Targets

As in a 3d type target??

Again Rinehart.....more expensive....but the foam is amazing...I used to hit 3d shoot every weekend and stopped going to clubs that didn't have rineharts....they also last longer...arrows pull MUCH easier from them...

Re: Archery Targets

I have a morrell large range bag that has lasted since 1997, just put a new cover on it this year, never left out in the weather. For youngsters it would be harder to miss a 32"x32" bag, also can put on lifelike paper targets or balloons to spice it up alittle?
