    Does anyone else here just keep using there old targets long past them being worn out? A Target is just not an exciting purchase so I tend not to think about it unless I'm shooting.

    I have had to put an old broad head Target behind this one for a couple of years now to stop arrows. It finally got to the point that I couldn't pick out anything to aim at anymore. I was about to break down and replace it when I realized that as it had slumped down over the years the sides have gotten broader. I turned it sideways, took out a sharpie and made a little circle. looks like I'm good for another 5 or so years!

    I have rewrapped old targets in burlap and painted new spots on them. I shoot around 10K shots a year so I go through targets often.
