    This target is hands down the best target that I've spent money on.

    I've bought several bag targets that ranged in price from $20 to $60, a layered foam target for around $50, a Rinehart block that picked up for around $75, and the Bulldog FP that set me back about $100.

    I shoot nearly every day and every target listed above has lasted about the same. A matter of just a few months before being shot out and/or not stopping arrows.

    While the face of my Bulldog target is shot out in several spots, It is still stopping arrows just as good as always. Here's the kicker though, It has a LIFETIME WARRANTY that covers the face. I ordered a new face kit from their website for the low low price of FREE! I only had to pay about $12 for shipping. In a matter of days, my target will be new again.

    What's the core made of? Most of those bag targets have that stringy crap inside and it's hard to pull the arrows and you pull a lot of it out with your arrow - and arrow removal is hard.

    I love my compressed hay bales but they're too heavy to take in and out and my neighbors nor my wife like them in the back lawn.

    My bulldog gets left out in the elements and it still stops arrows just fine.

    I need a new target bag. Maybe this is a better alternative. Can it be hung/ suspended via chain from the top two corners?

    The inside is made from some kind of felt or felt like material. Not stringy at all. Arrows pull out easily.

    As for hanging it, the frame is wood. Just screw in a couple of eye bolts and it's good to hang. I do this myself.

    Looks like a really durable target! Thanks for the info on them... I have never heard of the company or targets before. Will be sure to give them a try when my layered foam target craps out!

    You mentioned felt as in the inner layers. Can you shoot BH's with it?

    No. It's a field trip target only.

    Yes it is. It never stopped stopping arrows. The face was the only thing to wear out.

    All that's needed is to occasionally lay it flat and step around on it to redistribute the filler.

    So do you have to "repack" or re-arrange the internal stuffing when you change the face out?

    What is involved in changing the face?

    No to the repacking question.

    I simply installed the new face over the old one. It comes in three pieces. A front, back, and the band that goes around the outside. It all just staples into place.

    Love my Bulldog. Bought the 36" one a year ago. Beats $10.00 per visit to the archery shop with a max 30yard shot. I can shoot out to 140 at home.
