Practice makes a perfect shot—so get ready for your next hunt with archery targets for your backyard. Go for the realism of 3-D targets or more basic foam blocks, bags and targets.

Think about your bow’s draw weight. Draw weight denotes the amount of strength required to draw back a bow. Most adult archers can use a bow with a draw weight of 50 to 70 pounds. Youth bows have a much lighter draw weight. Always consult product information before making your selection.

You should also consider the draw length of your bow. To determine the proper draw length for you make a fist with your bow hand and hold it outward, as if you are shooting a bow. Have another person measure the distance from the end of your hand to the corner of your mouth. Select a bow with a draw length near this measurement.
