Just an FYI update: I ended up buying two targets since my last post, both thru Sportsman's Guide.

Still a nice target that will likely travel to camp sites with me.
Side note: I thought the 9" depth might let it tip over on high shots. (3) 20yds shots with 69ft/lbs KE in top center diamond did rock it, but it stayed upright on a level platform.
The other one was a Big Green Stopper bag target for my field/target points. I'm really liking this one so far in the two weeks I've been shooting at it.
Quickly stops my arrows, and the small diameter 80KE darts a friend shoot out of his Hoyt Carbon Element.
nice ...let us know how the hold up over time.. as in soft spots /UV damage?
the sun can kill a target..
rh stage 2
no if s and butts about it if that is where elk slayer shoots i want to go there , yep yep :D
I shoot the cabelas arrow hawk target. It has held up very well over the last 5 years but I don't shoot broad heads into it only field points.
These are pretty nice and the price is nice as well. I had one last season and it worked great for field tips and broad heads.
bone collector is a great target. rated for 400 fps, 4 sides to shoot, about 40 lbs so it wont be blown around
What exactly makes a target a broadhead target?
A broadhead target has hair, walks and pisses ya off ???
I just got a redhead, its heavy, but kind of top heavy. Bag type with soft foam frame in bag.
Did shoot at the block and a spiderweb at Scheels a week ago, I almost bought the spiderweb. About 3" less penetration the block, and pull out with no effort. But, $140 I think.
My brothers block is getting crumbly, sitting outside too long. But good for broadheads yet, just messy.
