Default target holder and pvc bow rack

My son started shooting a Genesis bow in 4H this year and seems to enjoy it so Santa brought one for each of my children.
After looking at many pictures and making a list, I was able to get to Lowes to pick up things needed for this pvc bow holder. This is what we put together. We still need to paint it.

Driving down the road I saw an old swing set being trashed. I thought the main frame would be a good target holder. Turned out I was right.

My son with his first bullseye.

I am not a bow hunter and I dont know much about target shooting, but I do know that my kids cant wait to get homework done so they can go OUTSIDE to shoot thier bows.

Thanks for the comments. As soon as the flood waters we got last night goes down, I need to move my target to face another direction. I did not think about us shooting towards the neighbors.

Good job. Doesn't it just make you feel good when the kids like doing things outside.
