    Default Got A Question.....

    Looking to get a 3D target to make practice a little more realistic and would like some recommendations on models and brands. I normally either shoot at bag targets I make myself (feed sacks stuffed with old clothes and rags) or stump shooting in the woods/swamps. As far as big game goes I hunt whitetails and boar. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Had a Glendel and it was a good target.Kinda skimped on my next one which was a Shooter Buck and regret it.Does not take alot of shooting to destroy the vitals,and that is with FP's.My next one will be a Glendel again.

    once you start shooting 3d's you will want 2 shoot one every weekend you as far as equipment it's still a personal thing shoot differant models see what fits you,for me I like some speed to over come some yardage misque's a couple yard could mean 10 points or 8 point but shooting good group over way's the extra speed if you don't have good form, find one that fits you

    I have had McKenzie targets, and they aren't bad. I do think my next one will be a GlenDel though, or a Rinehart. After looking at both of them, I can see they appear to be several steps above the quality of the McKenzie. I've noticed that the targets with the "vital area" that is just made out of layered foam tend to wear out REALLY fast. The same goes for a plain solid foam type body on cheaper targets I've had. I think it boils down to, you get what you pay for in this case. If you plan to shoot broadheads, it'll really make a difference.

    Yeah, I know I'm grumpy and opinionated.

    Thanks for the info folks! I would like to practice with broadheads so durability is a factor. Thanks again.

    Rhinehart has been my favorite, and they do hold up well. However if you are planing to shoot broadheads you will want to make sure the target you buy has a replaceable kill, and with that being said with broadheads you will be replacing it very often.
