    Seem to remember my tongue beening firmly in cheek when I replied to this thread.
    Fair comment, it's not just wood chuckers who lose points-but.....

    Well we did the magnet on a string thing and used a stud finder and looked behind for dicarded points.... nothing. Might have hit a very hard glue patch? Bad point? Annoying, whatever it was.

    HaHa - but Dan you are forgetting the secret one point "longbow archer bonus" we apply for just hitting the darned target at 100yds

    I think you would need something better than a 'stud finder'. I use a hand held metal detector and changed its shape from circular to more 'pointed' by bending the 'detector coil'. I also insulated about half the coil base with electrical tape to give me a more localised sensor area.

    thing is, when I miss at 100yds with my bent stick I can see the arrows sticking up and dont have to spend hours with a metal detector looking for them. People with knobs and dials shouldnt be missing at any distance less than this and expect sympathy when the day's exercise is looking for their missing arrow. Another problem we dont seem to have is piles becoming unscrewed and separating. We also dont have to offset our targets to prevent excessive wear on the middle of the boss, my target seems to suffer at about 7 o'clock but the middle is a good as new.
