Can anyone recomend a good, reasonably priced crossbow target? I want one that will handle both target tips and broadheads. It will have to be able to stop shots from a 175lb crossbow. The targets I have will stop them but they sink clean up to the fletchings. It makes them hard to pull out and is hard on the fletchings too.

I've heard that the McKenzie ShotBlocker for crossbows works fairly well for both. But, in my experience, there is really no one target that handles both field points and broadheads (for crossbow or compound) and lasts plus has easy arrow removal. You are far better off to shoot field points into a bag target. I really like the Morrell bags. They last "forever".

Then, buy a separate target just for broadheads.

This is going to get chewed up faster, but that is simply the nature of practicing with broadheads. Whatever you do, don't ever shoot anything but broadheads into it. (I've literally had to stand on them to pull field point tipped arrows like pulling Excalibur from the stone or something. :doh2: :lol: )
