Default What type of target?

When you practice, what type of target do you use most? Why do you use this type?

They just last longer.

Plus,they are easy on arrows and easy to pull arrows from.

I use Old hay bales. I use them because I have some. If not I would use a Morrell bag.

I use a Morrell Yellow Jacket. Easy to move around and it is easy on the arrows and pretty inexpensive.

What Todd said above... though I've also got a Morrell Bionic Buck toothat's absolutely a dream to shoot into, and gives some semblance of shooting a 3d deer. It's basically a 3d target with a bag middle.

I use 4 types ,
i have a plastic hessian bag filled with old clothes and it stops arrows brilliantly ,
i have a small layered foam target which i shoot dots on also good stopping power ,
i have hessian bagtarget thats full of Foam offcuts . Arrows go through the middle , but if i shoot it length ways its ok i suppose and i have a big layered foam target 90cm x 90cm , which is useless against my X-force ( arrows bury right upto fletch and further at times ) .

I found the target i made myself , works the best

I havea Morell field bag suspended from ratchet straps inside my roofed target. That bag gets about 95% of my shooting. I have a Yellow Jacket foam broadhead target that I used for pre-season broadhead practice/tuning. I would like to add a few 3d targets to get me better at shooting 3d, but budget right now won't allow it. The morell bag, however is holding up amazing. Keeping it suspended, IMHO, really helps the life of the bag.

I have the GlenDel 3D Buck from the makers of the Block it's a really good target for practice and it holds up well.
I've had this target for about four years now and I only had to replace the insert once , it takes a lot of shots weather your using field tips or broadheads.
