The best archery targets under $100

Looking to buy your own archery target? It is well known that archery targets can be quite expensive, especially when you plan to use it all year round like I do. I want a lens that will last at least 6 months, I mean, preferably longer.

There are, however, some great archery targets for under $100!

Before I dive into my suggestions, I would like to say that for the most part anything under $100 is not going to be for crossbows.

None of these will be “self-healing”. These types of lenses are usually well over $100. If you have a crossbow, however, none of these targets mentioned here will stop your bolt. You can try, but you will be disappointed as they tend to pass quite easily and ruin your target much faster.

Let’s see the best archery targets for under $100!



1. Black hole archery target


Black hole archery target

Black Hole has a solid reputation. This has 4 sides you can shoot at and although it claims you can use front and rear extendable broadheads, just know that it will rip the target as soon as possible.

However, this has incredible stopping ability for both compound and traditional bows. What’s nice about this design is that the arrow really doesn’t get stuck inside and it’s super easy to pull out without further tearing the target or your arrowheads.

It has a handle which makes it portable and it is quite light. I would recommend putting something behind this to stabilize it, as it is a bit light, the force of some impacts might knock it over.

Advantages/Long lasting, pull on 4 different sides, well made

The inconvenients/

Conclusion/Excellent target for everyday shooting

2. Morrell Yellow Jacket


Morrell Yellow Jacket

The Yellow Jacket is a great budget option. This is a standard bag target and although it only says two sides to shoot, I have used the sides to shoot as well and all went well. However, the main shooting sides are front and back.

This is a field point only, I don’t recommend trying to use anything other than the field point with a compound or traditional bow with a bag target like this. Broadheads will absolutely rip this bag apart in no time.

I will say though that the field tips can sometimes get stuck in the bag, ripping unnecessarily larger holes and making it a bit of a pain to exit the arrow. However, it does a great job of stopping arrows.

It’s also a kind of heavy bag, although it has a handle to move it around, it’s a bit heavy, so don’t expect

I would also recommend putting something behind this to keep it upright, due to its size, even though it is a heavy bag it has a habit of falling down sometimes.

Otherwise, it will last you a long time. It’s even good for youth arrows, my 6 year old daughter shoots her arrows very well on it.

Advantages/Long lasting, stop the arrows,

The inconvenients/Can sometimes be hard to get your arrow out

Conclusion/Sustainable fiscal target.

3. Block Recurve Archery Target


Block Recurve Archery Target

Block is well known for its durable archery targets. They have objectives that correspond to a wide variety of needs and each of them

It’s not self-healing, but it has tight layers, which not only means high stopping power, but it also means arrows can be pulled out with ease.

This is a two sided target and I wouldn’t recommend shooting the sides as it’s really that wrapping that keeps it super tight and durable. If that wrapper starts to come off, it can come undone and that’s your target. Sure, if you hit the plastic once in a while, that’s fine, but it’s really just a two-sided target that can shoot from the front and the back.

This is such a simple target design, but the high visibility white is really easy to see from any distance. It is also lightweight which means it can easily be moved around as needed.

This will stop broadheads, but keep in mind that it will rip the target faster.

Advantages/Light and high stopping power, easy to shoot arrows

The inconvenients/

Conclusion/Big target with a reputable name

4. VHIONER Archery Targets


VHIONER Archery Targets

It’s kind of a “classic” design. It is made of straw and can be placed on the ground or even hung.

Although it is made of straw, it is 5 layers thick.

Every time you pull it, you will sometimes see “debris” or rather hay or fibers. This may give you the impression of destroying the target, but that’s normal.

It’s definitely not meant for broadheads. Traditional and compound with ground points only. I would even say it’s probably not good for super powerful compound bows. Great for youngsters too!

Advantages/All-natural straw, extra thick, classic design

The inconvenients/Not as durable as others

Conclusion/Maybe not as long as others, but

Which target suits you?

Depending on your budget, you can find a target that suits you and your archery practice needs. Which will you choose?
