Have Delta Mckenzie and the ASA put out photio realistic copies of their targets?
here is my line of thought. My club has 2 half Field Ranges. one will recieve a little love when i get back from South America. the other 2 are ready to shoot as we speak. Anyway. The Red and White Ranges have all of the mandated stakes present and accounted for. Granted i believe we have 4 shoots mismarked. Fixing these is part iof the "love" the courses will recieve when i return form Peru. Anyway the 3rd Range was basically dead until I rebuilt it. At little to NO cost for the club by the way. Anywho this ranges has become just a walk through range currently the NFAA Animal targets hang on the butts. Now I enjoy field archery. the Field Round.. cool
the Hunter Round.. cool
the Animal Round.... give me a freaking break! the 20 ring encompasses 2/3rds of most of the animals. the draws are straight 1970 if you place the "dot" where the NFAA tells you to it is dead center in the middle of the 20 ring so if you are just out you only drop a point.
Now if the ASA and McKenzie put out life sized, photo realistic target faces of their approved ranges then i and the rest of the ASA shooting world would have some thing affordable to practice on. Think about it. If each of these were say $8 bucks then for $240 you could have all 30 animals for the ASA ranges to practice on day in day out. That beats the roughly $4000 grand it would cost to buy all 30 3D targets.
Now at Tri County I know there is no way Huntelk would allow me to expose $4000 grand worth of new 3D targets to the elements. Really the dude SQUEEKS when he walks!
J/K! However, I would nearly foot the bill for the photo targets. especially if they are made like some of the newer Field Faces that are tough as nails and aren't fodder for the local birds nests!
What would it take to make this happen?
And before anyone gets on there THE ASA IS ABOUT #D DANG IT horse... I ain't saying that the ASA should go into the Field Archery buisness full time. What I'm saying is that if we all had access to decent inexpensive target faces then the ASA would again be heads and tails above the NFAA. Then if they came out and beat the NFAA at there on game.... that would be funny!
again any buddy on a high horse that thinks I speak blasphomy on either 3D or Field hammer away. I will be in the desert of Peru for the next 10 days. Limited internet access, work can't call.....
