'block' style targets
« on: August 22, 2011, 01:08:01 PM »
maybe some of you didn't know this and i can save you some money and target life. for those of you shooting BLOCK STYLE targets, meaning those with layers of material:

if you are shooting from an elavated position, you should have the target layers perpendicular to the ground. that way, you are not cutting through all the layers and decreasing your target life. (if you are shooting level, it doesn't matter)

the reason i bring this up is i was shooting w/ a friend this weekend and he never heard of this. he was going through a target per year. i normally can get a few years out of my targets,

good shooting!!!!!!!!!

good info Yari. I'm pretty certain they won't warranty early wear, even though most say they are good for thousands of shots.

Yes I do that.  Great advise.  It will save the target from excess wear.  It will make arrow removal easier too.
