Best broadhead target

Recommended Posts

lunker651

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.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
