As bowhunters, we all know how hard it can be to properly compensate for angles when shooting from a tree stand. Some recommend sighting in your bow at 17 yards instead of 20 to compensate, while others recommend purchasing range finders that adjust the distance for the angle. However, as is the case with most things in hunting, nothing can beat practice, practice, practice. Cody and I routinely take out the Gorilla climbers and carry the target into the woods during the spring and summer to practice shooting from different tree stand heights. Now, this is all well and good other than the fact the out Morrell Target is rather large and quite a pain to lug around from spot to spot. Fortunately, we recently found the perfect "throw target" for just this occasion.
Rinehart is famous for its 18-in-1 target that is guaranteed to last for one year. The Rinehart Field Target (RFT) pictured, on the other hand, is a 9" circular target that can be carried anywhere with little effort at all. Small enough to fit in a suitcase, the RFT weighs but a few pounds and is perfect for everything from tree stand practice to a quick round of shooting in the back yard. In addition, it is also capable of handling both field points and broad heads so it is literally perfect for every occasion. Perhaps the best part of all? This target costs a mere $27.99 at bowhunting.com (http://www.bowhunting.com/shopping/Departments/Targets.aspx).
With warm temperatures and longer days approaching, there is more and more time each day to get out and practice with the bow. Always remember, perfect practice makes perfect and this target will allow for that practice in any myriad of situations.
