The owner of this product was at the Mile High Expo this weekend and had one of these set up. Looks like it would be a fun addition to club or organization for their 3D shoots either on the course or as a novelty shoot. Thought I'd share.

Pretty cool, but I think you could build one cheaper.

I am sure I can make $2000 in less time than I could build one of those.

It’s a garage door opener upside down with a return spring. Pretty sure you could make one easily and fast. Cool idea though

John, remember when the FCAA Members Shoot had a remote controlled deer that ran around on wheels, and a running deer between two trees? I miss those days and those folks.

I remember the cable between trees. That think could out run a cheetah. Starting Wednesday leagues soon Lou you need to show up at least a couple works this summer, maybe talk Brad into coming with you and any other folks you miss.

Moving targets promote target panic.

We had one of those (garage door opener) at the range for our fun shoot. Also had a turkey sitting on a record player turntable.

Before my AK hunts I made my own moving target - for rifle though. You could use G5 SGH or judos for bow. Need a buddy to use it though.

I soaked the end of a 5' long 1x6, then bent the end like a water ski. I stapled balloons on it. I learned that standing (screwed) a 2x4 on it save hits on the ski. I drove a 1" PVC pipe in the ground at the distance I wanted to shoot. My buddy stood next to me with a musky rod with the line around the pipe to the ski/target. As he reels the ski moves perpendicular to us.
