Don't Let Summer Wreck Your $$ Targets

Many bowhunters don't do a lot of shooting during the summer, and that's OK. I don't either. I usually get back in the swing of things come late August.

But I have a question for you: Did you remember to bring your 3D or Block-style targets indoors for the summer?

If not, you should. Or, if you don't have ample storage space for your targets, you should at least cover them from the elements.

For a few years I attached standard tarps over my archery targets, and while this was better than nothing, high winds and pounding rain typically shifted or removed the tarps, and in time my targets became damaged. Not good.

These days I rely on Target Tarps instead. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes to fit most targets, and they're made out of polyester fabric with a polyurethane coating. The Target Tarp helps to prevent fading and cracking with its protective UV and water-resistant design, and with its multiple tie-downs, a Target Tarp stays in place during nasty weather.

Don't waste money this year by forgetting to protect your expensive targets. Bring them indoors during off-season, or better yet, keep them covered year-round.
