      Does anyone use block targets and if what brand? Shooting woodies.

      I’ve got one that I won in a raffle somewhere. Not sure of the brand. It works well for warm-up shots in deer camp with field points. I would think that broadheads would cut it up pretty quickly.

      For shooting in my workshop I have one of the nylon bags full of pillow batting. Not sure of the brand of that one either but it’s stopped about a gazillion arrows & I can pull them with two fingers.

      Not to be overlooked (and cheap) is a simple bale of straw tightened with ratcheting cargo straps.

      Hi Robert

      I like ” The Black Hole ” tgt for camp and my roving range ( looks like compressed sheets of plastic) its easy to work with, and reasonable price for a block tgt. I also use the smaller size compressed hay bales ($12.00 +-) from Tractor supply — very tough and not too big or heavy to move around the range / backyard.

      And I buy feed sacks at the (what else?) feed store and fill them with plastic bags, bubble wrap, plastic shipping envelopes etc.  Fill them tightly, then either staple or sew the end closed, mark an aiming point (I use black Duck Tape) or two and you’re good to go.  When it is shot to pieces it goes into the plastic bag recycling at Walmart and I fill the next one with all the plastic material I have been saving in the garage.

      Sounds like the perfect do it yourself ” thrift ” target. It is even recyclable… excellent idea
