My neighbor wants to make a 3d target base so he does not have to keep sticking pegs in the ground. I thought I saw a couple pics on the board of some homemade ones (one with wheels and one with birch logs), but I can not seem to find them. Anyone able to help out?

Interesting.
I was thinking, and remembering, low tech.. with logs.
But the PVC pipe and garden wheels is a nice easy set-up.

See if I can get it done before Dad gets back from Elk hunting in Co.

How are you attaching the target to the stands?
The 3d Deer has 2 bars that normally would be poked into the ground and then the deer sets on the poles with a metal sleeve.

With the logs what I saw was a center log crossed by two logs.
The cross and center logs were notched out 'lincoln log' style and I could not tell how they were held together (nuts/bolts or Nails/spikes).

From what I could see they then drilled holes into the center log to place the bars, just like you would put them into the ground.

I can not see quite how they did it with the PVC set-up above.

I drilled a hole into the PVC just big enough for a 12" piece of rebar to fit snug , the hole is only drilled thru one side onf the PVC not all the way thru .

I use two left over pieces of 2 foot long 4x4 lumber from my deck, screwed a 2x4 on top of them to form an "H". drilled a hole in the top of each 4x4 the diameter of the rebar and hammered in the rebar. Slide the target on and off just like the rebar was in the ground. Use it to shoot in my basement.

Cost all of about 3 bucks for the rebar, which is the only thing that I didnot have at the time.

I'll try to post a pic.
