Someone left these in my indoor archery club range for us to have a little fun. I'd never seen these before in the usual retail websites like Lancaster and I figured I'd pass this along for those here who might find them useful for practice. At first I thought they were out of print with a copyright of 1983 on them. But I went looking and it turns out the printer, Finnwood Products (www.finnwood.com) sells them. The site is pretty simple so I'm guessing they are a small family run business. There's a few others in their Safari line including lion, leopard and even some small monkeys. Spray adhesive them onto some cardboard and they'll last a while. I'll be making an order to change things up on my backyard target.

Sunday morning safari at the indoor range. 50 yards is tougher than people think without the little yellow spot to aim at.

Very cool!! Thanks for sharing! I'll have to look into those.
They will sell them on carboard, but the postage is murderous. I found the old invoice from 2009 on the back of one. For three sets of targets it cost a little over $100 to get to Anchorage Alaska. I'm sure it's worse now. I'll buy a bunch on paper and have them put into a poster tube, much cheaper.

Am I missing something? I do not see the African animals on the website? Still, very cool targets and thanks for posting the link.

Click on the gorilla, leopard and monkey on the right side of circle of targets. It'll show you the different targets in their 'Safari' line. To order you have to download an order sheet or probably call them. This is old school.

I realize how hard the bug has bit. I’m on the cusp of safari #2 and I’m looking to plan #3 with my 11 year old a year from now while looking at my work schedule for overtime and computing the math of how many shifts are needed….

I'd like to get some too.

My wife (a biologist, like me) had to have a melanoma removed from her arm last fall.

Hallo Marius- do you have possibilities for stags in September during the roar? Where are your hunting areas in Romania?

I'm about ready to pull the trigger on another rifle but would love to see your rifle first, any way you could forward a pic or two?
Thanks,
