Fun Archery Targets for Fair


Splitear

Recommended Posts

In our 4-H Archery Booth during fair we usually tack up balloons to the wall and 3-D targets as a fun little "reactive" target for shooters. However, I have a couple of volunteers and kids who have a severe latex allergy, and balloons are off the table for this year. I'm looking for some ideas of fun targets that we can use in place of them. 

Right now I'm considering: playing cards, tennis balls (staked to the top of targets and hanging).  It needs to be cheap, as we have hundreds of shooters throughout the week. Also, something that's easy clean-up. I thought about clay targets, but we have artificial turf floors in the booth, and I don't love the idea of cleaning up clay pigeon fragments all the time :)

How about some sort of bin underneath the target board to catch the broken clay targets? 

That’s not a bad idea, a tarp would work as well. I wonder if our low poundage bows would break them (10#). Only one way to find out :)

I'm sure they would. But I swear some of them could survive the swarm of 9's to rob me of a perfect 25 in trap.

Another vote for the playing cards. You can get them with animals on the backs, so it would sort of be like a 3D shoot.

Or you can get standard playing cards in bulk on Amazon pretty cheap.

Water bottles filled with cow blood work for you?

Red Solo cups seem like a target that could be reused a time or two, saving some $$.
