Rated 4 out of 5 by HeadBuster101 Delta 3-D Riverbottom Buck Target
I really like the target. It gives a great visual to see. You can take so many different angle shots to get you ready for the real deal. For the price and the little maintance, It's a good deal.

The head falls off after a short time of use. Will not stay on If you hit the plastic legs, you can barely remove your arrow without damaging it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rick Shultz Riverbottom Buck
This product is ideal for the guy with a small back yard. The longest I can shoot in my yard is 34 yards so the smaller stature of the Riverbottom Buck is ideal. The only down side is that I tend to be lazy and leave my target up 24x7 because I shoot several times a week. After 6 months in the elements, the material is deteriorating to the point I wouldn't take it into the woods to use as a decoy but is still very functional as a target at home. If it held up better in the elements, I'd have scored it 5 stars. Even at that, it's still a great target for the money!

If you like to shoot a lot, I would expect this target to hold up very long. If you are just interested in shooting at this target every once in while and use another target for more daily practice, it would be great. Just dont tear it up with broadheads!
i actually had a 8 point stop in the back yard and give it a hard stare down. he was still in velvet. he was on a pretty good run too. don't know if that helped but it sure stopped him and made him look.
The appearance would be fine for using as a decoy. However I'm not sure how difficult it would be to mask the odor. You would need to wash it with a scent eliminator then leave it outside for a few weeks before I tried it. Hope this helps. God Bless!
I say it will, this past season I threw some doe urine out around it in my back yard and had a small buck come charging out the woods straight for it. Also, I had a buck to rip it off the stakes I had it standing on late one evening this past season.
It looks just as good as other decoy models but it is slightly smaller. If you spray it down real good sith scent away and maybe some light buck urine, it should at least get the interest of other deer but they will probably be hesitant to come in close. therefore it may work if you are using a rifle but I wouldn't use it during bow season. But hey, try it and let us all know in a review!
