I am looking to purchase a full size wild boar 3D target for my home range. Prices seem to range from as little as $100 or so up to over $1000! Any thoughts on choice here?

well, being the cheapie that I am. I look at the fact that I can buy 10 cheaper targets for the price of that one really nice one. Can't imagine they will wear out ten times quicker.

I am of the same general mind set - but don't want to buy junk either; hence my question to the troops.

i'm a cheapie most of the time. I wanted an elk target to place with but instead I made me a cutout kill zone target out of plywood. I have another one of a deer that we had used in bow ed class for demos.

I picked up a 3D pig target made by r&w at the etar last year, been shooting the heck out of it and it barely shows any wear paid around 250 for it and would definitely recommend it I think Lancaster archery has same target for 299

I bought one from Bass Pro several years ago for $110. It has a removable kill zone. The only problem is that every year I have to spray it black because the finish fades. I gave the target to a friend in Texas because where I live now I can't shoot in my yard. His family enjoys shooting it.
The trick with all 3D targets is to use them with only broadheads and only just before season. They will last forever. I see no need to shoot at 3D targets on an everyday basis but everyone has their own opinion and needs. Frank __________________ Charter Member Traditional Archery Society

If I the law would have let me shoot in my backyard I would have bought this one:

I generally buy the cheapies and only when they are on sale. I usually get a couple of seasons out of one. I am just not willing to spend $200 to $300 or more on an archery target.
