Ideas About HUnting Targets

Just wondering what you folks use for hunting targets. After sighting in with regular targets, I like using life size targets or just pieces of cardboard that approximate in size the broadside of my game. After all, animals don't have rings or solid black circles on their sides. Often in real hunting situations, hunters shoot at the whole animal rather than picking a spot. If you practice shooting at a blank piece cardboard at the spot where the heart or lungs would be if your animal were broadside to you, you force yourself to think about the (inside) anatomy of your animal when all you can see is the outside. Does this make sense?
