any ideas to keep my Mckensie shotblocker from turning while shooting? It's an annoyance to me. I've thought of running re-bar through it,but that's sure to cause arrow damage. Ratchet strap to a board,maybe.

A couple of spikes at the bottom (close to the sides) should do the job i think.

do you have kids,or camping chairs.and no dont use the kids to hold it when you shoot..my daughter has big toy cars and trucks and wagons.i just ust them on both sides to keep my target in place,or two camping chairs.one on each side.that way i dont have spikes in the yard...or use a broken arrow on each side,or if you have enough on all corners:cool:

Dog tie out screws, one on each side and rope over the top of target to both screws. 4X4 staked down and behind target.

Other;
Heavy concrete block on top, but keep your shots low. :D
Have a "friend" hold the target - tell him no "jumping the string." :D
Butt up against neighbor's house. :D Tell him your garage is to shot up to stop arrow.

Dang! I like being helpful.... :cool:

some interesting ideas guys. Think I'll try the arrow stake trick. That sounds least likely to cause issues w the neighbors. They still haven't found the Thunderhead buried in their fence. Oops!

The screw-in anchors and rope work well.

If you don't get penetration through the targets at all, you can lean a piece of plywood against the ground, and over the top of the target. Like making a bicycle ramp out of the target. (Which I don't suggest doing. lol)
