I never really thought of it as a game, but the one thing I have always done, was Target Tornado.(YOU NEED A TIRE SWING) Hand a paper gun target in the middle of the tire swing with a string so it rotates, then spin and swing the tire swing at the same time. Then try to shoot as close to bulls eye on the target tornado as you can. Whoever gets closest, WINS. That is, if you can even hit the paper! @--0--0123 @--0--0101

I like their dartboard.  And their deer.  I love the tic tac toe idea!

Put some different sized circles on the ground and get some flu flu arrows. Make the various sized circles worth more points.

I also shoot at distance.  Out to 60yds.  I use my barn as a back stop for my Block target.  If I miss the Block target it's expensive.  So now... am fairly accurate out to 60yds.  However if something goes wrong I just hit the broad side of the barn.

There is nothing more beautiful than sitting in a treestand watching the world come alive.
A bad day of hunting is better than any day at work.

We filled an old tire with block material, used some old rope to make path - one piece of rope on each side.  rolled the tire between the ropes and tried to hit a moving target.  Makes you realize that you need to shoot at something when it is still - but sure was fun.
