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.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
