    archery targets

    I made a couple of archery target frames that you can break down easily and put in your car if you need to. Hang a bag and you are good to go. The bag you see is full of clothes, rags, etc. Has a velcro top. Pretty nifty.

    Sure, they will withstand a tornado, but what about a hurricane?


    And what's with the sheep in the background?

    A while back I made a bag target/paper-tuning rack combo out of PVC pipe that I can break down and transport. If I had it to to over, I'd design it a little differently for stability and transport, but for a first attempt it works well enough.

    It does look nervous, doesn't it? BC never told us that he's originally from Oklahoma.

    Lol, When I was looking at those photos, I knew that would draw your attention. It's a little flower box, but sometimes I use it as a decoy.

    So, what are the pros and cons of running the crossbar through the frame vs. using the U-bolts? ....

    Just trying different designs. The A- frame model is very portable. The U-bolts clamp the bar down to the frame so it is stable. Without the U bolts the frame tilts. I tried running the bar through the wood and it didn't work too well. The other target is solid and has a cross brace so the bar not being locked down is no problem.
