Thread: Homemade roe deer target

  1. #1

    Homemade roe deer target

    Morning all.
    I'm trying to sort out a roe deer target for longer range practice and a bit of fun, and I'd quite like to be a cheapskate and make my own

    Does anyone have a printable roe target that is either already life size or one that I can scale up?

    And does anyone else have any fun home made targets of their own?

    All the best,
    Martin.

    Martin,

    The paper targets we shot at on the DSC 1 course were an outline of a generic deer, but were Roe sized. One of these would do as a template. I've got one, but due to a house move its packed away god knows where.

    Someone might be able to send you one.

    All the best with it.

    Cheers,

    Bob

    I cut out a picture of a roe broadside then put a torch behind it the move my board away until there was a life size projection on the board, drew round the shadow then cut it out job done .

    Come off it Martin, i know you dont need the practice!
    Or at least you didnt when you came to Devon.
    You shot that roe off your sticks in gale force winds and driving rain.
    Cheers

    Haha thanks Richard, shame we had to drag it up that bloody wet hillside

    I like your thinking Provider, I think I will give that a go first and foremost!

    I see scotspine is hoping to shoot a rare albino roe this year then

    Well instead of doing my tax return like I should, I have been having a tinker and I have for you all a life size roe deer target that you can print out at home.

    Open the pdf attachment and click > Print > Page Scaling: "Tile all pages" > OK

    This should print it over several pages to give you the full size target, all you have to do now is get the sticky tape out and fix it together!

    Hope it works,
    Martin.
