      Mine is pretty boring. Got a kick out of the deer in the background when I took the pic.

      Love seeing where everyone else shoots, especially the country behind the ranges. Except R2, you must make a lot of arrows shooting at those rocks…!

      Here’s mine: 1st pic is from 30 yards above the hill. 2nd is same target but closer and level; 3rd is my stumping range up the creek. The last is my fiancee shooting in the Humboldt Archers indoor range at a potluck indoor shoot.

      I can’t post pictures, but I have two ranges at home.

      In good weather I’m able to shoot in the backyard & can get almost 40yds from the back fence. I have an old Block targer & a backyard buck that’s going to need replacing soon.

      My nasty weather range is the basement where I have a small stuffed target & I can get 10 yards. It’s better than nothing when it’s nasty.:?

      Ha! One place I do not shoot for sure.

      I got all this nearby.

      Archer38,

      Some of your targets look hand made/hand painted. Is that your work? Looks very nice.

      And what did you make them out of ?

      Here’s my range behind our house. I have five lanes to shoot here, ranging from 16 to 22 yards (and some granite boulders to focus my attention …) I’m fortunate to have thousands of acres nearby for stumping (including some right in back of this range), so I use this mostly when I have limited time.

      OK here’s mine such as it is……

      The backyard target

      I like to shoot this one between the 2 trees there. Sometimes I hit the little one to the right

      Sometimes I sit and shoot and sometimes I just sit….

      The doe target has seen better days but still works

      Yes, all but the whitetail target are home made. I’ve experimented with a few different targets. First, I had a friend give me some big blocks of foam and I cut out the shapes with a reciprocating saw. Then painted them with exterior latex house paint. That works pretty good but the best ones are what I call Tarp targets. I live just down the road from a lumber yard and they always have a pile of shipping tarps that their lumber is covered with when they receive it.They’re happy to get rid of them ! If you crumple these tarps into a shape or stuff them into a feed sack, they work awesome for targets.You can shoot them forever and I’ve never seen easier arrow removal. Now I took this a step further. Once I have a tarp animal shaped, I wrap it with a combination of light material strips(old bed sheets ripped up)dipped in a water/glue mixture. Like paper mache’.

      when this is dried hard, I paint it to suit whatever animal it is. I once did a coyote that even fooled my dog !

      900 yards outdoors.

      Are those Herters bows hanging there ? Always likes the look of them !

      No Herters. That’s a Head Ski era Red Wing Hunter, an earlier (original) Red Wing Hunter, a Ben Pearson Hunter, a Wing Presentation II, a Bear Kodiak Hunter, a Damon-Howatt/Martin Dream Catcher and a 62″ Browning Explorer. All great bows.

      And I’ll be darned is I can resize the original image I wanted to post of a shot of my property. I can’t get it below 215Kb no matter what I try and this forum won’t accept it. Grrrrr.

      Thanks ! I’ve got a few more planned for the spring !! Right now I’m ding a groundhog with a 2 Litre pop bottle and spray foam. Also want to do a turkey, a bedded deer and hopefully full size elk !!

      This is “Stumpy”. My gunnysack’s sprung a leak.

      This is “Droopy”. I think maybe my bag behind him may surprise me with a baby target before long.

      I can shoot 44 yards in my back yard but I keep it under 20 yards as further is too hard on my fence. 😆

      I guess I’ll go to Gebo’s and get some more tow sacks.
