I got a grizz target for Christmas last year. Always wanted one for backpack hunts. Light and able to carry on a backpack hunt. Well this year I took it on a hunt. Shot an arrow into it at 50 yards and the arrow almost went all the way thru it. Destroyed the fletching.

I was hoping it would stop arrow better?

Anyone else have one of these targets? Is it just my setup penetrating like crazy or what's the deal

If you shoot micro-diameter arrows, they make a newer one that stops them better.

I have the one you have--bought it a year ago--it stops my arrows, but it goes all the way to the fletching. I do not shoot micro shafts.

It works well for the purpose of making sure nothing is dramatically off in the middle of nowhere, without completely ruining most arrows

Gotcha! Dang yea I'm shooting micro diameter arrows!

Yea I want it for just a check to make sure everything is on. But don't want damaged vanes every time shoot!

I just bought one that I took on a hunt. It is definitely a 1 shot, to ensure you are on. I only shoot 65 lbs w/26.5" DL, so not too fast. My arrow went almost to the fletching at 30 yds. BUT, it served its purpose.

Yea I understand it not a target your gonna shoot a lot. I just don't want my fletching on my arrow to get trashed every time when I'm in the back country

What happens if you're bow is off? Wouldn't you need to shoot it several times to get dialed in? I'll pass.

I always carry a judo to make sure I am where I need to be. Just got to find something decent to shoot at that won't destroy your arrow/fletching.

This is what we do on a mountain or wilderness hunt...find a cheap "bullseye" foam target with a replaceable center section. This is about the size of a large plate, about 2 1/2" thick. This is the part of the target they gets all the shots so it has denser foam. Wedge it against a stump or under a blow down and your set. We actually put it in a Ziploc bag and buried it on a Elk hunt....we returned 2 years later and it was still there in the plastic bag just like we left it. Have quite a few scattered around now. lol

The Grizz target works substantially better if you are in a situation where you can hang it from a tree limb or bush.

That way the impact is absorbed.
