morrell outdoor range target
« on: October 01, 2019, 04:06:56 PM »
has anyone used these? I saw bill winke an others on his show use them. I realize many times that sponsorship dictates what these guys use, but it looks like it might be worth looking into.

I've been a Block target guy for years, but am looking into other options. I use to use bag style targets prior to high speed bows and really liked them

thoughts?

I use Morell Yellow Jacket, they even have one for crossbows. Firm, last much longer than those black square brand deals i used in the past that were fast to fall apart

I have one of their bag targets, very similar to the yellow jacket also.  I don't shoot much these days, but have used it for 3-4 years now and it has several hundred arrows and bolts into it with lots more life remaining.  I do store it inside between shooting sessions, and believe that's a key to getting long life out of the nylon bags.  Sunlight will degrade them in time.

the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I use the yellow jacket target. When I bought my crossbow it would blow right through the block crossbow target. Very pleased with the Morrell target would recommend it over the block targets.

Same here.
Had the block for my compound and then had to get the Morrell Yellow Jacket for my crossbow.    %^$^

No problems.

I bought the morrell outdoor range target and wanted to give an update. but far the best target I've owned. very easy arrow removal, it seems to wear very little and it's a large profile. it's perfect to long range shoot w/ the large profile or for young kids starting out

the only knock is it's weight at 60#. it's not easy to get a good grip to carry it. you basically need to bearhug it or have a dolly

obviously this is not a broadhead target. I just want to put that out there

Yari - Yea me too, I use a Yellow Jacket for my Styker Crossbow also...both of them I have the smaller one also the little bag (about 1/4 the size of the big bag) to discharge my Crossbow in...I will use the PSE Compound on the big bag in the back yard and shot it as much as the Crossbow and will take it down with me during the hunt....but as I age, I will count on the Crossbow....It is a good bag all in all....I would not hesitate in getting another one....just keep it out of the weather and it will last you years and years...

Yari - No target was attached...but like Split Toe says, the Morrell Yellow Jacket will stop a crossbow arrow and the others will not, lost a few arrows with the old Styrofoam targets. When I got up from my knee surgery I could not use the climbers any more so I spent the money and bought a Styker Crossbow. Split Toe and I did not talk before I purchase mine, but he got his one year before I did...the second purchase was the Morrell Yellow Target and will have it the rest of my life, keep it out of the weather and it should last me the rest of my life (and the small yellow one as well, have them sitting next to each other in the external garage...

These crossbows (any of them) is amazing instrument of destruction, I got a little over a grand in mine, with it new arrow, fix broad heads, scope (probably more like $1500 in it) and I know some guys at the GA Hunt Club that bought them off of Amazon (the refurbished ones) for as little as $200 (for the whole kit with arrows (bolts) and case with it and he loves it and it looks just as good as the bows that cost a grand....

But we all use the little target that I bring down with me to release the crossbows....you cannot go wrong with a Yellow Jacket Target....
