Re: the best broadhead target and.....

Rinehart 18-1 and the American Whitetail Cube Hybrid are nice targets, but you can loose inserts in them when pulling arrows.

The Big Shot Transformer has a core that the shooter can customize to the speed of their bow. It comes with different thicknesses and densities of foam. Nice thing is if a insert pulls loose, you can separate the layers and get your insert out of there.

As far as de-cocking, there are special de-cocking arrows out there but you still have to shoot them into something and they can break or fly off into parts unknown. I carry a small de-cocking target with me and just shoot into it with a field point. Most of the manufactures make these just for de-cocking.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I would also add the Rinehart Rhinoblock is a nice target as well. Same material as the 18-1, but has different sides.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

blobs are the best....hands down!

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

Re: the best broadhead target and.....

I use a Mackenzie xbow block target, its been great. And as far as uncocking...I use a decocking bolt...also works great with no problems.

Take a kid hunting, it's the future of our sport and the future is now!
