I got mine out yesterday and shot a few. I am going to get a new target today. The field point tipped arrows were goin straight through the cheap styrofoam target. I am goin to try a new layered target.

I didn't get one. I wanted to get The Block 4x4 but they were all out. They sold there last one earlier that morning. I can make do with the styrofoam targets for a little while longer.

I've been trying to get at least some shots every day. Bowhunting is brand new to me and I really enjoy planting arrows into the target.
I have the $15.00 styrofoam job from Wal-Mart, aka Wally World, they also have the layered foam but the next investment for me will be the deer target with the removable vitals. I think that will really test what I can acan;t do with the bow.
Stats: 3 arrows, 10" dia, 25 yards
Is that decent?

hey guston i think your saying your getting 10 inch groups at 25 yds. is that decent? for a newcomer to bow hunting yes. for a deer hunter in the woods i would say no. 3 inch groups is more reasonable for a hunter in a stand.
