    What’s a good crossbow target. Got one for Christmas and shot it last night in my regular block target for compound. That don’t work. Went all way thru and good thing metal plate was behind it to stop it.

    I used a Morrell for years, my dad is using it right now. Bought a Rhinehart last summer and I’ve mentioned on here it’s almost too tough. Can’t hardly pull arrows out but by gosh there’s not a chance you’re shooting through it! Just make sure your target is rated for crossbows and you should be fine. A lot of bag targets are only for field points so if you want to shoot broadheads make sure you got the target for it before buying.

    Update. I bought a target tonight at RK. The guy said it would stop my crossbow bolt. He said he looked it up and said it would so I bought it for $24.99. He said if it don’t save receipt and bring it back. So guess we will see. I’ll put my other block in behind it.

    I think I paid 40 for my Rhinehart bag. $130? What were you looking at?

    This is the one I got. Looks like they are $50. Nice thing is the one side is set up for sighting in. No guessing how far your low or right or high or left.

    This is very similar to my original Morrell target I bought with my first xbow in 08. Great target, dad still using it, but it’s only for field points. Good news is most of the broadheads I’ve shot shoot exactly like my field points (I’m a fixed BH guy). I have the little Morrell discharge target that I take with us to unload after hunting. Some people like discharge arrows but I like the target to check my bow and make sure it’s on plus we can practice a bit over lunch. Best 14.99 you can spend. Also, want to comment on your xbow. My dad bought a Killer Instinct last Fall and it’s awesome. Shoots hard and fast and weighs nothing. His is a Hero 380 I believe. I’ve been super impressed. I bought him some additional KI arrows, and my cuz bought him a nice KI soft case, and the old man thinks he’s the cock of the walk with his new setup. LOL! Congrats and enjoy!

    Shot my cross gun today and the yellow jacket target did great. Shot it at 15 yards. It’s pretty much dead on. I’ll shoot it further maybe tomar. It’s real windy here today so didn’t want to do any adjusting on it. Not that the wind was effecting it, prolly wasn’t at that range. I’m within 2” of where I was aiming. I’ll do some more later. Happy with the bag target though.
