Before ours get too bad, we sell them off via silent auction. I really haven't given the problem too much thought due to our selling them. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Dutchman,

Actually, its not a problem only if you can't find someone who wants them.  The reason why I asked is because I will be using the information for an article that I am doing for Traditional Bowhunter Magazine.  Again thanks for helping me out, I greatly appreciate it.

In the past we have also mixed pieces of used old targets to build some "unusual" fantasy animal for the practice range or kids shoot. You can cut new new scoring rings with a router very easily of you want to use it in a more conventional range. You'd be surprised what you can create with a sawz-all, gorilla glue, and pipe clamps.

Joe,
That's a great idea...I think that I'll have to give it a try.

Some of what we sell off might need a little shot of expandable form in the core area. That'll keep 'em going for a spell. I use shrink wrap around the area that I'm filling with foam and then fill it up. I trim any excess and paint to match.

We will sell off some of TBG's older targets at the Northern Zone Shoot, May 17 in Ranger. As Dutchman said, this is done as a silent auction.
Some of these may be in need of serious repair, some able to be shot as they are sold.
Again, as mentioned above, clear shrink wrap, a small hole and adequate amounts of expandable foam, then trim, paint and redo the scoring rings will add quite a bit of life to most of the older targets.
I have quite a few in the woods around my house I have brought back from dead.
