Default Life size projected targets

Set this up last night in the backyard. I painted a sheet of 1/4" plywood white and cut out an opening about the size of my bail. I covered the opening with weed barrier and panted it white too. I hung the whole thing just in front of my bail.



I put together a PowerPoint presentation using a bunch of Google images of animals: elk, deer, pigs, zombies, turkey, etc. my brother has an lcd projector that I set up about 10' in front of the target. It really works pretty well for creating life size targets. You just have to keep the vitals on the bail.

If your asking about what's behind the screen, it's an excelsior bale. My neighbors garage is behind the fence.

I'm guessing you can only use it at night. Are you lighting up your shooting area to see your pins?

That is a great idea. I think for an indoor league it might work to also have a second image with the scoring rings, so shoot it without the rings, then flip to the rings to score. Thanks for sharing!
