Shooter Buck 3-D Target or Replacement Vital
Can't beat the price
As other reviewers have noted, there are better 3D targets on the market, however, for the price, its difficult to get more value for your money. I would recommend the Big Shooter which is somewhat larger. Also, instead of buying new vitals for $30, I found that by purchasing a can of foam insulation filler and, after a 100 shots or so, inserting it into the various holes your arrows, made, the foam filler will expand and fill in all of the spaces that have been opened up by your previous shots. I have shot hundreds of arrows into the same vitals using this method. Saves a lot of money

Good for kida
This was purchased for my 11 year old son who draws 35lbs at 23 inches and this target does what I hoped it would. It's affordable and sturdy enough to handle the impact of his arrows. I've shot it a few times with my maxxed out Switchback XT (60 lbs @ 28.5 inches) and the arrows buried very deep into the target. The target also seems kind of flimsy when my arrows hit. The rebar stakes only go into the targets legs about 6 inches and this target could probably benefit if they could allow the stakes to slide into the legs about 12 inches. Good, sound target for the price and will serve my son well, but I don't see this target holding up if I decided to shoot it on a regular basis.

Arrow removal exhausting!
Was looking to buy a new target and depended on some of the good reviews here - went and bought this target. When I got it home, yes the set-up was very easy, but arrow removal was exhausting! I shot 4 arrows (field points) into the vitals and spent the next 15 minutes getting the arrows out. I ended up having to take the vitals insert out and standing on the insert to get enough leverage to pull the arrows out. I thought I was going to pass out from having to pull so hard. Took this target back and got a refund. This might be a good target for a youth bow (less penetration) but not a good target for an adult bow ...... Mathews Reezen 6.5 @ 71 lbs.

I received this target today. Set it up and shot 4 arrows into it at 20 yards. I shoot a pretty fast bow and I wouldn't recommend shooting a fast bow at this target at this range. My arrows went half way through the target. When I went to remove my arrows, that is when the fun really started. I felt like King Arthur trying to remove the famous sword from the stone! It took me a good 4 minutes to get all my arrows out (I think my hands are going to have blisters tomorrow). I shot the target a few more times at longer yardages and as I would have expected my arrows were quite a bit easier to remove at 50+ yards. Anyhow the target performs well and works well for the money.
