Title: Rinehart 1/3rd scale elk target
Post by: Bango skank on May 08, 2019, 10:26:27 PM
Doesnt quite look like a 1/3rd scale elk.  1/3rd scale deer size maybe.

No, just posted it because i just got it, and i expected it to be a bit bigger.  I think its kinda funny that its called 1/3rd scale, and its the size of a medium dog.  i expected it to be about the size of a deer.

Ah shoot. Gotcha. Yeah, last time I checked elk were a bit more than 3x the size of a black lab!

Ita a third of the size of a rinehart elk target not an actual bull elk.    Standard elk target is 52x60 and a simulated weight of 600.

The 1/3 scale is 38x44 and a simulated weight of 180lb

I'm thinking that that size/configuration is meant to be used kind of like the military 25M qualification targets.  The military targets represent distances out to 300Ms, but, is fired at from only 25M's away.  No, you wouldn't be shooting at the elk target out to XX yards and expecting it to create the same represented size of a full size elk (including the vitals size).  Instead, you'd shoot at it perhaps at 25-30 yards?  Brings a whole new meaning to "aim small, miss small".  Not sure, just spit balling  ;)

Picked one up tonight. I figured I was going to get anew target in that size/price range might as well be an elk.

Shooting at a 1/3 elk or any size other than life size cannot be good for judging distance in the field under  full draw on a actual elk shot.
