I can vouch for that, Aadhaulya, having shot at some of these targets myself!
Cheers!

Thanks guys. Necessity is the mother of "do it yourself" :P

All of the targets have been made taking inspiration from various forums online with small tweeks as per my liking. For example the bunny targets usually have a big ass bulls eye in the centre mass of the silhouette. I tweeked the design by making a smaller "kill zone" right behind the eye and under ears.
We arent allowed to hunt either so this is the next best thing and they are far more fun than punching holes in paper targets.

One thing i have realised after the diy projects is that we can make most stuff by ourselves and dont really have to import everything. There are many other members making far better stuff and of a very high quality. I would highly recommend everyone to take the first step and try making the simpler stuff themselves...

Excellent work kshitij.
Very professional looking targets.
The duelling trees are very nice and the Rabbit is awesome.

A lick of paint and you could go into business... :)

kshitij,

Since I have never seen things like this in actual life, can you please explain the mechanism of the 'rabbit target'. And how does it operate.

Regards

cmpugay,

Seriously bro, he has done a good professional job. I would also love to buy from him if he is interested in devoting time to create the masterpieces for sale.

Sorry guys, never had any intentions of selling these. Just been a hobby for me. Plus even from a business point of view, unless i am looking at making huge quantites it wont be a viable. I would be more than glad to share the cad drawings i have made to make these or any other details required to make these. :cheers:
