ATA 2018: Top New Archery Targets

ATA 2018: Top New Archery Targets

For a diehard archer, nothing is more frustrating than a target that just isn't up to the task.

The new Rinehart Sasquatch target towers over every attendee at the 2018 ATA Show in Indianapolis.

During our time at the 2018 Archery Trade Show in Indianapolis, we checked out four new targets that will make a fine addition to any backyard shooting range.

Rinehart Targets


The Sasquatch, a 7-foot-tall target that is carefully sculpted and hand painted for intricate detail, was sure to catch the attention of every show attendee in 2018. Made with Rinehart's self-healing, UV-resistant foam that allows for easy arrow removal, the Sasquatch is sure to stand up to years of target practice, rain and sunlight — so you can keep the larger-than-life companion outside in the elements. A locking target insert is replaceable to further extend the life of the target. The Sasquatch is easy to assemble, and again, is sure to be the talk of your shooting friends.

Delta McKenzie

Available in three sizes comes the Chunk from Delta McKenzie. You can now practice shooting with both fieldpoints and broadheads on a single target. The Chunk, which features integrated handles for easy carrying, is created with Delta McKenzie's Mo'Foam construction process that fuses layers together for a dense, single-block design that is long-lasting and durable. The cube shape offers shootability and equal arrow penetration on all sides, plus it's rated for today's high-speed bows as well as most crossbows.


MSRP: $39.99 (12-inch); $74.99 (15-inch); $119.99 (18-inch) | Contact: Delta McKenzie; 801-539-1400

Morrell Targets


Measuring 21x21x21 inches comes the High Roller 21 from Morrell Targets. The company's new-and-improved target-foam technology makes for an incredibly durable design that will withstand shot after shot. The self-healing formula is flexible and allows for easy arrow removal, then closes back up right before your eyes. The extensively tested target is compatible with bows and crossbows up to 450 fps. The High Roller 21 includes an EZ-tote carrying handle for convenient transportation from your backyard to hunting camp.

MSRP: $94.99 | Contact: Morrell Targets; 479-632-5929
