Thinking about a gift for a hunter? Tired of buying targets every year or two? How about letting Mike’s Plans show you how to construct your own target with cheap or even free material! By using our directions, you will be able to construct an archery target that can stop arrows and bolts from bows and crossbows. This plan is easily customizable for making larger or smaller targets. With a rope fastened to the top, it can either be used to drag the target to your shooting location, or you can use it to hang the target from a beam for elevated shooting (the beam or any hanging structure is not included in the plan). This particular target is roughly 4’ wide and 3’ tall, but as mentioned it can be made to any size.
I have been able to use a 300 foot per second crossbow with this target at even 5 yards!
