    I’ve grown comfortable at 31” with my shift, I feel I shoot that better than my answer, but not by much. Anything impress you enough to make a purchase?

    Halon 32-7 31.5” draw Stone riser, Elevated II limbs. This was my last 50 yard group on my first day of really being able to get out and shoot it. There was a bottle cap where those 3 arrows are although I did have the one flyer. Got about 200 arrows through it today though. My shoulders and back are tired because I’m way out of shooting shape but it felt great.

    Really like that color! The target is awesome as well, what is it constructed out of?

    Well, I know this will probably get me flamed but at age 63 and with bad shoulders, this is now my reality. I plan to thoroughly enjoy it!

    Thanks! I’m loving the color scheme on the bow as well.

    The target is made out of 1/4” ply around a frame of 2x4. I used 2 layers of burlap for the target face and it’s stuffed with various plastic.Mostly used pallet wrap I get from the Pepsi driver at work. 3/4x4 pine remnant boards from Menards finished off the face. It was very cheap for me to make as most of the stuff I had laying around. Just burlap and this boards. Maybe have $20 in it. Works well so far but I just started using it that day actually so we will see what the longevity is.

    Here is where I got the idea. Mines very rough compared to his.

    I know what Im gonna be building as soon as the snow clears! Ive been wanting to build a big target/backstop as I live in a small neighborhood and I feel the neighbors are a little uncomfortable with the bows out, this should calm their minds!!

    I built a target from same video. It’s nice having a 4’ square backstop to shoot at. I am a finish carpenter so I felt the need to make it a little fancier than it would have to be but works great. After using it for one season I believe it will last for 10 years or more.

    Are you storing it indoors, or leaving it out and covered? Mine would need to stay outdoors, planned on building it with an elevated air gap on some treated lumber and then using a grill cover.

    It’s been sitting outside for a year uncovered and have not seen any signs of weathering yet. The frame is made out of wax coated framing lumber, the face is made from an old trampoline that the wind destroyed “which works great if you can get your hands on one” and the inside is stuffed with old shrink wrap that I scored from my local Home Depot. They had a trailer full of it out back. All parts are water proof so no issues leaving it out. The deer target face I got from LANCASTER archery. That is also waterproof. If the front wears out I can just spin it around and the back is identical to the front. I feel like it might last forever.

    Not a great photo but my RealmX at 70# I switched to Black Eagle Rampage arrows BG single pin and can't decide between WiseGuy or the Keeton IMG_0003.JPG
