    Default First outdoor shooting for 2011

    Here's a pic of my shots from about 30 yards. Didn't shoot any farther than that because I didn't want to hike through the snow.

    Basically plastic signs(cut to size) and a wood frame. The facing is building wrap, and the target is stuffed with an EXTREME amount of plastic(shrink wrap and and any other plastic you have laying around). The rope handle is threaded through the holes that I drilled it the wood frame.
    I also made one that has two sides to shoot at. I'll post pics of it later.

    Where do you scrounge up plastic signs and the stuffing from? Are you talking building wrap like Tyvek?

    Ain't shabby a bit. It's great to shoot outdoors. I have a new Pacific bale coming to replace my shot out bale. I did make up a wheel barrow of sorts to haul my target bale. I'll take a pic this afternoon. Basically, it's box with bicycle wheels and handle.

    My Dad works for CocaCola, so that's where the signs and shrink wrap comes from(grocery stores just get rid of the shrink wrap). The building wrap is pretty much the same as Tyvek. You can also use tarp or burlap for the facing, and just about any type of plastic should be fine for stuffing(pellet fuel bags, grocery bags, etc.).

    Here I thought he was a full time string building Super Shooting fool!

    There seems to be no end to the supply of Walmart bags blowing around on windy days!

    Is this type of target broadhead safe?

    Your local department stores, Bass Pro, Cabelas, Gander Mt. and lots of others use a lot of this shrink wrap to bundle things together for shipment. Go ask them if you can rummage around in their dumpsters.

    I don't think I'd use it for broadhead targets. It could get awful ugly trying to pull them back through. Better off to use some kind of solid foam for that. Even the layered foam like Block targets won't handle a lot of broadhead practice. It just slices them up. Besides, you shouldn't have to do a whole lot of practice with blades anyway. Enough to get them flying right and sight in. Other than that they can be put away and use field tip that are design for practice.
