Features a replaceable, self-closing vital area; the remainder of the body is constructed of flexible and durable self-closing foam with IBO-approved scoring areas on both sides. Stands up to extensive broadhead and field-point use from high-performance compound bows with aluminum or carbon arrows. Convenient 4-piece design with easy twist-lock assembly. 2 ground stakes included. Removable antlers. Made in USA.
Designed with the serious backyard shooter in mind. Ideal for practice with both field points and broadheads, with a replaceable vital section. Made of self-closing foam and hand-painted for intense realism. Includes removable antlers and easy twist-lock assembly. 40" high (to back), 48-1/2" high (to antlers), and 43" long.
This target is definitely priced right and to be so cheap is actually a pretty good looking target. The vital area along with the rest of the deer is a little small, but that makes for good practice IMO.
The stability isn't the best and I wish it came with longer stakes, but that can be fixed with a little rebar. I've noticed a wobble every time I take a shot at it. As for the stopping power this target does a pretty good job, but is wearing out pretty quickly. I've been out only four times and the arrow tips are already sticking out the back a little bit (picture below), however the vital core can be found for $30 or less so that's not a huge deal as I think it will last a few months.
A lot of people are complaining about arrow removal, but it's really not that hard. I just put my hip on the vital area to keep it from coming out and pull the arrow out.
The head is a pretty legit issue though. Mine's only been up for a week and the first time I put it on the foam bump that was supposed to hold the head came off (picture bellow), but the head is still holding on that bump just helped to keep it steady. Doesn't seem like it will last long up there, but we will see. Overall I think it's a great target for the money and we got it pretty cheap on sale for $70 so definitely worth that.

Excellent target with amazing stopping power. I use Rage 2 practice heads on it. I have yet had a hard time to pull my arrow out. Great value. I am buying another for the camp.

This is the second on I have purchased.
I get 3 years out of the target and about
6 Months out of each core.
This is shooting 1Hr every night.
Light and very portable.Good value for the price.

Great 3D target
Great target to shoot at. I keep mine put away when not in use. Arrow removal at first was hard but after 20 or 30 shots its pretty decent.
Going from a bag target to this target was very helpful in preparing for deer season. This target is smaller than some other 3D targets you see. However if you can hit the kill zone on this shooting at bag targets and larger 3D targets is easy.

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!
