I was asked to field test the new Shurkilltargets. Upon arrival, I found the product to be unique. The quality of the graphics and directions are excellent. I was excited to field test all five of the Bow targets with my crossbow. I live and hunt in the U.P. of Michigan. Most of the deer hunting is done in heavily forested areas. Hunters clear shooting lanes in areas where deer come and go from feeding to bedding areas. My blind is located in a thick swamp of approximately 3000 acres My shooting lane is 35 yards long and 25 feet wide. Deer crossing or momentarily stopping in these lanes rarely present the perfect standing broadside shot. I have been targeting a 180 class buck for two years. He presented himself twice in this two year period. I was reluctant to take the shot, once he was straight on (frontal) and the other he was quartering away.
A wounded deer in this 3000-acre swamp is something I could not chance ethically. I took all 5 of the Shurkill Bow targets back to my blind. I first placed the Frontal and Frontal Quartering target at the 35 yards range. Almost the identical location the "Narenta Phantom" was standing last Oct. I was able to place 4 of my 5 bolts in the kill zone on both targets. I next placed the quartering target slightly inside the wood line and sent 5 bolts down range. Once again I placed 4 of 5 bolts in the kill zone. Practicing with these targets was fun and educational. I now have the confidence to send a bolt down range should one of these angles present themselves. I used the hole stickers to repair the targets and will go back at least one more time before Oct. 1st. The quality and price point is excellent. Just maybe this year the Narenta Phantom will be on the wall. I would highly recommend this product
Most Deer Hunters can relate to these same circumstances. However, Michael (and you too) can NOW replace "Missed Opportunities"waiting for just a Broadside Shot with Four (4) NEW SHUR KILL ANGLE SHOTS that - "ADDS" Four Times (4X) = 400% More Kill-Zone Opportunity For Success.
Deer Tree Stand, Elk & Bear Angle Targets Are In The Works!
