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 need to get me 1 of those too. im still using one of those that is made of that glue they use on the backs of carpet. it seems like it weighs a 1000 pounds and once that arrow is shot into it, its an act of congress to pull it out.

You could probably buy it from them off the net and check to see how much shipping is and they would send it to ya.Not sure about the cost but may be worth checkin into.
I have been practicing already and this is my first bow and I hope I get a chance to take one with it this year.Got my spot picked out but I need ta get me a stand put up still.Picked up a used high country bow from Archery talk forum that seems to shoot pretty good.

I bought a layered target for $50 today from Rural King. It is a Morrell. It has been raining sense I got home with it. I'm not complaining about the rain the corn, alfafa, and other crops really needed some rain here in IN. Let you all know how this target performs.

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.
