Never got a good answer for this question. How would you build a good target that doesn't ruin your broadheads? I'm using a Compound Bow (70 lbs) and G5 Montec broadheads (100 grains).

Designate one broad head and use it for target only . Or go buy the practice heads... no reason to use your hunting broad heads for target practice .

I use medium density foam blocks.
You will have to resharpen every one you shoot into the foam before you go hunting.

Great idea about designating practice broad heads though.

Broad heads will always damage your target just one of those things you can't get away from I also use foam and one bradhead that becomes my practice tip

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
