I repaired a bear target this spring with some great stuff, but now it needs to be repaired again, it's completely destroyed! Does anybody have any advice on repairing it? There's a good 10" hole where the kill zone used to be and most of its front legs are gone from missing low. It's in about the same shape as it was this spring only a little worse. The GreatStuff didn't last very long and was hoping for something better. Has anybody tried EA's Flex Foam-it? it looks pretty promising but a little expensive.

yep, basically 'picking a spot'.

go to the hardware store and get some dense foam sheets, cut out the bad section and replace with the sheets and paint.

Not a removable section. It was used when I got it. It is about to rip in half from missing high. It's a small bear, about the size of a hog.  
I think I'll try the foam sheets.

Put a bag target behind it and shoot through the Hole?

or

stuff with those high density yoga blocks and morter up with spray foam?

With a 10" hole I'd say it's pretty removable.  Make the hole as square as possible.   Cut out the same size square in high density foam and fit into place.  I did that to an old Delta Buck.  Only works for a short while.  Better off buying a new one.  

I got a lot of years out of a Mac Kenzie alert buck BY NEVER SHOOTING FIELD POINTS INTO IT.  When you use your 3D target with field points and then shoot BH's it's like connect-the-dots.  Before you know it chunks are falling out.  I only shot BH's into my 3D's and they lasted  years.  So long I had to paint them.  I used Morrell Eternity bag target with only field points.  Frank

I have used a product called 3D repair kit, but it’s as much as a new target.
It is very dense, in fact tougher than the original target usually

It’s also very temperamental
