    Has anyone used a Huebert fiberboard target? Can you use carbon arrows on them? They are made right here in Boonville. Me and a buddy are thinking of going in on one.

    Thanks . . . leaker

    Leaker.. I just called them and they say that these targets are what carbon arrow shooters prefer cause they leave no residue on the shaft. Prolly just trying to sell them but they look good to me.

    2'X2' - $40.00
    3'X4' - $75.00
    4'X4' - $100.00

    Let me know how they hold up if you order one.

    I have one in the back yard that I have had for many years and they are great. Get the big one it's well worth the money. Same stuff used at many archery shops. James A Reed archery range uses the same type of material. Get yourself a tarp and cover it and just leave it outside and will last for years.:cheers:

    We have used them forever at our bowrange, and I have 2 personally. We have them every 10 yds, from 10 out to 50 yds. Great targets, and great backstops to put your own 3d target in front of....we hang 9 clay pigeons on nails, and play tic tac toe too.....VERY fun game!!!! Buy one, you'll like it!!!

    Fireman.. I'm guessing they last forever (long time, anyway)??

    Yes, they last a long time. We use 2x12" CCA, or whatever took it's place, on top, and on bottom, with 2-2x4 blocks on the ends of the bottom like feet. Then a metal bander, to band it all tight...have also seen allthread used for this. They can get shot out in the middle, after several 3d shoots. Mine at home, I just use for a backstop so I don't shoot thru the back of my house...or garage door in some folks case....hehehe. I've had mine here at home I'm guessing 6-8 yrs.

    Yea yea... shoulnt have said anything!!

    I made a large bale-binder type target out of unistrut frame and using allthread on both sides to compress cardboard. It lasts all seaon but the dang cardboard is so hard to come by. Its 4'X4'x12" and takes a bunch of cardboard to filler up.
    I'm a thinkin about one of these targets now, thanks to Leaker for bringing it up!! For free membership, this site sure costs me a lotta money!!

    Yep.. I'm gettin one. I keep the balebinder stashed at a buddies house. Hes got more room to shoot than I do and we usually have quite a few shoots in the summer.

    Oh.. and we play that tic tac toe game also!

    We have 8 Huebert targets that we use for 4-H Shootiing Sports. They are 6 years old and still going strong.
