In my opinion, archery targets are rather expensive, even bag targets. With that in mind, I have been trying to get as much use out of my bag target as possible. Does anybody else think that by choosing how you shoot your bag target that you can get more shots out of the target before it no longer stops arrows? For example, since my bag target has targets on both sides, after shooting at one side for a while, I tried turning it around to shoot the other side thinking this would distribute the wear on the target better. However, I think it had the opposite affect, and merely made the first side I was shooting at blow out even quicker. Now, I only shoot my bag target from one direction. I target a small area, and shoot that area until it is close to failure. Additionally, I draw on small bullseyes on the target between the bullseyes that were on the target from factory. Finally, I am targeting the top of the target and working my way down.
Do you think it makes a difference? What is your method?
