Target Setup (Shotgun)
1. The target is optimally eye level or below for the bulls-eye.
2. The target needs to be mounted on a "penetrable" flat surface that is at least 48 inches high and 40 inches wide. For best results a quarter inch thick cardboard backing is ideal over plywood. If you do not want to mess with the cardboard, you can just use plywood, but 9 shot that is a commonly used inexpensive target load will occasionally bounce off at 40 yards.
3. An ideal range allows for shots from 20 to 80 yards to accommodate extreme use. 40 yards is the most common distance.
4. Targets may be stored at the range site provided reasonable effort to avoid moisture is used. This material is water-resistant and will be usable in slightly damp conditions, but should not be stored wet.
