What's your favorite archery target?
« on: June 25, 2019, 06:44:09 PM »
Just curious to what people have set up for targets in their back yards. Just looking for a solid target for field tips that will hold up over time. Anyone try out the hurricane bag targets?

Rinehart block, hands down. 18Ē I believe. Replace the core every two years.

We had 30 rineharts we bought at the club in Colorado. They hold up great and super easy to replace any center..

Rinehart 18-1. Best targets ive ever had. Lasts pretty much forever with only field tips and holds up to broadheads very well too.

Big boy archery makes the best bang for your buck foam target imo. The shipping is like 100$ but a 36x36 is 175$ and will last you many years. I have maybe 1,000 arrows in mine and canít even tell.

I will follow my Matrix suggestion with I have owned the rhinehart, and while they are a great target. The Matrix absolutely holds up better, not even a comparison. If you shoot alot, do yourself a favor and buy the Matrix.

I use a heavy duty cardboard box stuffed with shrink wrap. When the box wears out I put the shrink wrap in a new box. I have been using the same shrink wrap for 20 years. I have had to add some once in a while. It stops field points great and it is easy to pull the arrows after the shot. Cheap too. If you know someone who works in a warehouse or someplace where they use the stuff you can get it free, I do.

I've had mine just over six months, and I'm already shooting through most sides. (Trying hard to see if I can shoot through all 18 sides, so I can take advantage of their warranty.)

That said, it's lasted me longer than most of my targets, and I really like the 18 sides to shoot at.

I have had a few over the years, usually the cheap $30-40 variety.  field points are ok in them for a while.  If you are shooting daily, about a year with just field points.  However to be ready for hunting season we need to shoot our broadheads a bit and those cheape layered ones loose thier mustard everywhere after 10+ broadhead hits.

I picked up a used Bulldog Range Dog target 2 years ago that is my primary practice target, nice and big for those early season practices when you are rusty. :chuckle:

I have shot WapitiTalk's Rhinehart a few times and last year finally bit the bullet and bought one.  They are just damn durable and I keep that one around to use broadheads on.

Thanks for the reminder, I really need to get out and start shooting again, I am way behind!

Another vote for the Rineharts.  I have the bag and the cubes.  As well as some deer targets, and a turkey target (I forget which manufacturer for those).  Ok, so my back yard is littered with archery targets.  I leave them up year round.

For just field tips those Hurricane bags work great and will last many years. ( I shoot about 10-20 arrows a day for about 6 months a year)

I have yet to find a target that holds up for more than 1 to 2 seasons of broadhead targets?  What say you folks?? Are the Rineharts just as good for broadheads?
