Best broadhead target

5 posts in this topic

I'm looking to buy a broadhead target to tune my broadheads before the season starts and was wondering which one will last for a couple season.

Which target is the best for broadheads?

The Morrell Yellow Jacket is an excellent broadhead target and also affordable.

Target life depends on how many times you shoot the target with broadheads. I had a block that lasted a few seasons. The BLOCK is a layered-foam target. When you start shooting broadheads into it, you start cutting the foam layers. When pulling broadheads out of the target, you start to pull out pieces of the cut foam. Eventually, you cut enough layers and pull out enough foam that you start losing stopping power. I was able to extend the life of mine by putting a ratcheting cargo strap around it and tightening it down to compress the remaining foam together. I haven't had experience with the Morrell Yellow Jacket. I buy cheapo Ethafoam targets, the 3" or so thick white ones sold at Fleet Farm, Gander Mountain, Cabela's etc. When one stops stopping broadhead arrows, I put a new one in front of it so I have at least one layer of solid foam to shoot through. I usually end up buying one new ethafoam target per year which is cheaper than a new Block or layered foam target per year. Haven't yet found the "Ultimate" Broadhead target but these cheapos have worked well for me. Best of Luck and let us know if you find a better way to go.

I got the block 4x4 this year and like it a lot you can shoot at dots, diamonds, vitals, and treestand vitals. I think it will last a long time because it dosent have the open layers of foam, when you hit it even with a broad head the posi lock compression system seals the hole up. my dad and i had the orginal block last year and used it for one year and now its no good cause your arrows fly right threw it because so many of the layers got pulled out so i would get a block 4x4 worth the money and will last.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
