Do-All Outdoors introduces its new Impact Seal 3D Prairie Dog, a life-sized, realistic target made to take hundreds of shots and bounce back for more.
The 3D Prairie Dog is a “self-healing target,” so it allows bullets to pass through with minimal damage. It is rugged enough to handle repeated punishment from all calibers of rifles and handguns, from .22 to .50 caliber. The stand provides a solid base, with ground spikes for added stability.
The 3D Prairie Dog measures twelve and a half inches tall and four and a half inches wide. With the spring loaded base, the dog bounces front to back and side to side when hit, then returns to its original position.
Get a few of these, and you can have a regular prairie dog town to practice on, and you won’t have to walk back and forth changing paper targets or target inserts.
Nick Sisley, an outdoor and gun writer with decades of prairie dog shooting experience, says these targets could be a big help for new prairie doggers who need to be able to judge distances at a moment’s notice.
“Range finders are great for determining these distances,” says Sisley. “But if the shooter doesn’t have a range finder, lots of experience looking at 3D prairie dogs through your scope, at 100, 200, and 300 yards, is almost as good for judging these distances. That practice should get you a lot more hits!”
