I find myself shooting more in the off season and a ton in the weeks leading up to the opening. I shoot 3 to 4 days a week on my work weeks and everyday on my weeks off from work.
I tried to set my targets up at odd distances to force me to practice for the real thing. I have a couple of 3d deer and some blocks and a bag target. (My poor blob has been retired to backstop duty)

Post up your backyard range and setup and how you prep for the season.

you are way luckier than i am when it comes to practice opportunity. i have my basement, 8yds, where i can fling arrows daily. i cant do outside at home because there is a city ordinance against target practice, but thats the price i pay for my awesome hunting opportunity. so i have to drive a bit for that, so its a little inconvenient. i usually just toss a foam target out in a field

Nice looking back yard!

I shoot a few times a week. I used to have a bunch of targets set up like you did but now I just have a block out there that I move around.

Before I ruined my shoulders, I did 3D target repair. So I was fortunate enough to get a bunch of old targets and fix them. This is what I built during the summer for less than $1000. Ended up selling all my 3D targets and repair kits to Art Brown who still does them today.

I got tired of having bag targets get soaked by rain, destroyed by the sun, get muddy, infested with ants, etc., so I decided to build a target stand. I asked for ideas on AT and got some good suggestions from murdamerb. Cost less than $150.00 and took several hours to build.



I can shoot to about 80 yards if I stretch it, but normally 20-60 (80 is standing at the end of my driveway lol).
