on a archery target. A friend of mine works for a gas company and he gave me one of their "pigs" they use to push the air and water vapor out of the gas lines. This is a 10in piece of compressed foam, or something to that extent. I have a Matthew Outback that was given to me about a month ago by my ex-bil. He left it set up with everything ready to hunt. I just needed to get a release and some arrows. I've been shooting some at 20 yards into my yellow jacket crossbow target, but yesterday evening I backed up to 30 yrds and shot 6 arrows into the "pig" for the first time.



Pattern wasn't too bad, a little high, but not bad for my first attempt at shooting 30 yards in over 20 years. But dang, it took my wife and myself pulling with all we had to pull the arrows out. No more "pigging" for me. \:D

Anyone needs a solid archery target? Fo what it's worth, my Excal crossbow shot bolts completely through the "pig" last fall when I first acquired them.
