Crossbow target recommendations

Going to buy a new target shortly. Can you use both target and hunting heads or are you better with 2 different types of targets? What target is the best one to buy? I use NAP 100Gr. Broadheads. Thanks in advance.

Re: Crossbow target recommendations

I just bought this one, but it is field points only

http://www.amazon.com/Field-Logic-Hurric...rossbow+targets

this one is popular for broadheads and field points

or google diy crossbow targets there are many of those and can save money

One thing I forgot if you get a bag target hang it up the arrow won't penetrate as deep if it is hanging

Re: Crossbow target recommendations

I like the Riehart Rhinoblock. It is made out of the same material as the 18-1 target that they have, but it has a couple of sides with replaceable cores for broadheads, plus a couple of 3D'ish deer bodies. You can shoot both fieldpoints and broadheads in this target. For bag targets the Big Shot Ballistic targets and the SpyderWeb targets are both pretty popular. I need to replace my bag target as it isn't stopping hardly anything anymore.

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

Re: Crossbow target recommendations

I bought a Riehart Rhinoblock also... stops bolts nicely.. but it still gets cut up using broad heads.. which is what I practice with ... just keep rotating and hit the different spots to get the most out of your target. they are pricey but are one the better ones out there..

I have a cube...thick foam made by morrell....believe there is six different spots around it to switch to shoot into...can shoot field tips and broadheads.
