Bag of tricks - Buckshotap

Bet wallers are full of all kinds of tricks to solve some common problems on everything from bows,arrows & quivers to skinning deer to????? One thing that often aggravates me is quiver foam becoming cut up so quickly that it no longer holds broad heads tight. Recently decided to place 2 heavy rubber bands around the foam to compress it & then place it back in the hood. Hopefully that will extend it's useful life. Seems to work. Time will tell the full story.

Allen-Give it a coat or 2 of Plumbers' or Sportsman's Goop. fill in the damaged cut area with some overlapping and it'll be good as new. Works on the foam or the rubber coated Great Northern Quivers.

I recently saw that there were replacement covers available for the Morrell Yellow Jacket bag targets. You don't even have to repack the "innards" , just slip it over and secure with plastic ties. Seems to benefit from running over it a couple of times with the truck....kinda moves things around in there! Checking dimensions, it might be possible to cover other brand bags, or even stuff your own. This may be old news, but I hadn't seen it before, .... worked great.

I can't remember the last target I purchased. I went to the local grain elevator/farm supply store and bought 4 large burlap grain bags, doubled them up and sewed them together. I reinforced the back of the bags with old floor mats and stuffed the target with anything that would stop an arrow, mainly that heavy duty commercial shipping wrap I got from work. I have one target in the basement and one in the shed. These target bags are now over 20 years old. I just keep patching them up as they wear with smaller burlap grain bags. The cost of these targets and patching material probably about $15.
