    I dont have a video but I just shot at one at 30 yards yesterday. it was an unknown yardage shot as well had to guess the yardage on it. I was going to try it at 40 after 30 but I didn't want to press my luck at $15 an arrow.

    Our club uses a steel goose; the Ft Collins club uses a steel turkey; the Loveland club uses "robodoe", a steel deer silhouette with a cutout. Typically these are used in 3D shoots as an unknown yardage bonus point. At Loveland they shoot it twice from different distances. I've seen it out to 55 yds.

    I have seen these at a few local shoots. Looks fun but a lot of people break a lot of bullets.

    "You missed. Try another one. Missed again. Try just once more..."
    Me thinks the "Iron Deer" is sponsored by the local proshops... so you end up buying more arrows.
    Appeal to a man's bravado and watch the cash register go "Cha-ching!"
    Very sneaky indeed!

    Are we sure we want to shoot at a target with a propane tank behind it? Yes its tougher than an arrow, but a lot of the fittings are not, and its conceivable that an arrow slide through between the two bales. Good way to have to buy a new tank of gas. Funny though

    Funny thing I didnt even notice the propane tank. That picture was taken with my go pro hero2 though so I think that tank is a lot farther over then it looks you would have to be a very very poor shot and miss by over 5 feet to hit that tank.

    I absolutely love metal targets. Gets the blood flowing. As close to a hunting shot with buck fever as I can get during the off season. Smoker rounds, steel challenge. I always tell my shooting group that if they won't shoot at a steel target, they have no business shooting at a live animal at the same distance.
    Just shoot what you shoot, and hit where you aim.

    Our 3D's usually have one on the range, unmarked yardage. There is the usual dozen arrows broken on the shoot by various shooters.

    It really is a easy shot 99.9% of the time. It's the people that use bad arrows( because they don't want to mess up a good one) and those that let the its a metal target get in there head that hit the steel.

    You're not going to make a mark on that tank with an arrow, even shooting a 500 grain arrow at 400 fps.

    My club has an iron buck and an iron bear target. The deer has brown burlap covering it so you cant see where the hole is and the bear is covered with black felt. They have both of thes targets at 20 yards away and you shoot from a 12 foot platform. I think it makes it a little more of a challenge to shoot where you think the vitals are.
