crossbow target

I shoot a PSE Copperhead which shoots very short bolts (setup by arrowhead). Last year I ruined bolts because they would go into the target ruining the veins. Any suggestions on a good target to prevent this.

Would any of the 3-D targets work?

Try a Spiderweb Target. It handles my Strykeforce arrows just fine and is easy to remove. Target points only though.

Re: crossbow target

I like the bag targets. Big Shot or Morrell work well. Two finger arrow removal and they last a long time. Target points only though.

Re: crossbow target

For my new Terminator I picked up a new (blemished) Rinehart 18-1 Target on ebay for $85 shipped. Takes field pts and broadheads. Love it.

I used to shoot my PSE Copperhead into a bag with very few problems. Field point only though.

I will second the Rinehart for broadheads. Best target going that many have not heard of. They don't spend millions on advertising like the block.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: crossbow target


Dont get one of these targets. The arrows with broadheads are "extremely" hard to remove. In fact I've ruined a couple of arrows just getting them out. Never had anything so difficult. You have to lay it on it's side and put your knee down on the target, pull all your might and it "might" come out. Tried everything from coating arrows and heads, arrow pullers, etc. Nothing really helps. I'm shoting Sonics and they should not be that hard to remove. Needless to say it's not getting much use from me.

Re: crossbow target

In PA, are you allowed to use mechanical broadheads?
If so, you can practice with regular fieldpoints (same weight).
I use a feed bag tightly stuffed with plastic bags and FP bolts never go trhough.
