Archery Range Backstops and Archery Park Target Systems:
our Featured Archery Range in St. Charles MO
I am the Park Naturalist at E.P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park in Louisville Kentucky. I have a lot of things to tend to each week, so when looking to purchase new archery targets for our public outdoor range, I wanted to make sure we purchased quality targets that would stand the type of high use that we see here every day. I researched for a couple of weeks, and finally found the Pacific Bow Butts webpage. We ended up purchasing six of the Super Butt target systems. These have worked great for us! They are much better than the previous layered targets; they leave no litter mess and we can simply change the bag to give them a new look. With the proper maintenance on these target butts, I think they will last at least another 2 years, if not longer! I have gotten numerous emails and calls about how much better the range is from our local archers, and it makes me feel good that there is a company like Pacific Bow Butts who can stand behind their product and are always there willing to assist with any questions. I would recommend to any recreational facility that offers archery that they purchase these target butts for their low maintenance, awesome performance, and ability to stand up to heavy usage.

After two years of constant shooting
at a public outdoor range the Pacific Bow Butts are holding up much
better than we ever expected. You make a great product.
Our range is owned and maintained by the Colorado Division of Wildlife
and is open to the public year-round free of charge. There are 5-even
yard(10-50 yd.)target butts on the westàeast range, 5-odd
yard (15-55 yd.) butts on the northàsouth range and 5-unknown
distance butts which can be shot from the tower or ground. And finally,
there is a 'Muy Grande shoot-at-own risk' steel Mule deer target
at an unknown range. Each target uses two butts so there are 27
of your target butts on the range at all times. We used excelsior
for the first year, they were expensive and didn’t last one

"This is by far the best target-butt
system on the market today. It truly represents how a target
backstop is to perform for today's modern archer. The grouped
arrow durability is superior. I shoot the same area a couple thousand
times then move my target 5 - 6 inches to the left or right, 2 -
3 up or down. I'll repeat this method, shooting this system in excess
of 250,000 shots. That's a lifetime for some archers, 4 - 5 years
for an above average archer. This system is truly one of a kind."

"We've saved over $4000
and many maintenance hours the past 3 years using Pacific Bow Butts
on our outdoor range. We are very satisfied and highly recommend
them for all archery ranges.

"The Kenosha Bowmen installed
Pacific Bow Butts in our 24 lane indoor range in December of 2003
. One of the biggest questions we had was; will they hold-up with
all the shooting that we do? The answer is YES. We are very pleased
with their longevity. I predict we will get two to three
times the life out of the Pacific Bow Butts, compared to any of
the past target backstops we have tried over the years.
Everyone here at the Kenosha Bowmen likes the Pacific Bow Butts
and we welcome you to come and try them out. We are located just
west of Ken Osha, Wisconsin on Hyw 50, 1.5 miles west of I94."

“I am the President of Pekin Archers
in Pekin, IL. This is to let you know that we have tried excelsior
bales and other backstops, but none last or out perform the Pacific
Bow Butts. On May 19, 2003 I replaced our 20 yd practice target
butt with two Pacific Bow Butts model Big Butt. April 17, 2004 we
just rotated them 180 degrees and still have not came close to shooting
through. If this were any other target butt, we would have
replaced it three times per season. We have a club roster
of 200 members and more during practice for club shoots. As a club
we feel this is the best backstop saving us a lot of time and money
that we could ever hope for. We can’t praise them enough.
Please feel free to contact us."

"Karl, your Pacific Bow Butts have
eliminated nearly 75% of the time we spent in previous years out
at the range replacing excelsior targets. Plus, we do not have to
lug around a water trailer, which is required for excelsior to expand.
You have an excellent target with benchmark service and
support. Yes, we are very satisfied with the targets, and
with the longevity of the targets it is financially better than
excelsior targets. In addition since the targets are so big we only
stack two versus three and save additional work and club dollars."

Last September we took delivery of
a 7 Super Bow Butt target system to replace our worn out fiberboard
backstops. Not only are they the best backstops we have used but
our club membership has doubled since we installed them. We have
not received a single complaint about the backstops and they
are still stopping arrows today after thousands of shots just
like they did when they were new. Our previous backstops
required annual replacement and with the bow butt we have not
even rotated them yet. We are very glad we switched to Pacific
Bow Butts. Thank you for making a solid product that performs
better than advertised.
