Stay Sharp This Summer by Expanding Your Backyard Archery Range

backyard archery rangeDelta McKenzie (801-539-1400; introduced a compact 3-D deer to its Daddy series of backyard targets — the Baby Daddy ($130; left). It features both vital and universal scoring rings and can be shot with broadheads or field points. The entire Daddy Buck target line features Delta’s proprietary new Antler Sockets, which solve the problem of antlers loosening and falling out. Antlers will stay secure and usable throughout the target’s life. The Daddy Buck series is also unique with its innovative cross-body dovetail locking legs.

backyard archery rangeRinehart’s (608-757-8153; life-size big-game targets in its Signature Competition series are both realistic and challenging. The Red Stag ($1,560; right) is no exception. Posed majestically on a rock, the target simulates a 500-pound red stag. It features the company’s proven self-healing and UV-resistant foam construction to stop thousands of arrows and allows nearly effortless arrow removal. The Red Stag target also incorporates a replaceable insert to prolong the usability of the rest of the target.

backyard archery rangeThe GlenDel (800-282-4868; Buck ($176; left) stands 34 inches tall at the shoulder and simulates a 150-pound live buck. The target is unique because it uses the same layered-foam concept as Block targets but in a lifelike 3-D profile perfect for bowhunting practice. The 11-inch PolyFusion core provides four-sided shooting so you can rotate shot wear, extending the target’s life. And when the core wears out, simply drop a new one in and continue shooting. Arrow removal is easy, and the target is fairly lightweight, so you can move it from location to location.
