With turkey season approaching and me wanting to do it with a bow, I've been trying to come up with a cheap way of getting a turkey target and I think I've come up with a solution. Use a foam turkey decoy. I'd put my block target behind it for a back stop as I'm sure my arrow would probably pass through. I saw some on Bass Pro for $15. That's a hell of a lot cheaper than a 3D target. Any thoughts on this?

I'll bet it would not last very long. If it's the one I'm thinking of its made from the expanded foam beads like the cheap foam coolers are made of. 6-8 shots later it would all be in pieces, as there is no structural integrity there. I would try to find a hollow or inflatable decoy and fill it with high density pour foam. It would last alot longer and still be way cheaper than a 3-D target.

 If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

Hay bales are fairly cheap. And last a long time.. Paint a silhouette and walaa instant shooting target.. If you want to get creative you can hang a ballon on a string so it dangles in front if the bales so it moves and such...
