How does this Lifetime warranty thing work? Is it for real?
It is 100% for real. Bulldog Targets is the first archery target company to offer a lifetime warranty on an archery target. With each Doghouse FP you are covered for life! If you wear out the face, the inside, or any other part of the target by shooting at it we will replace it for the rest of its life. Generally the only part that wears out on the target is the face so usually we will just send out a new face kit, however if for some reason you have worn out more than just the face just send us your old target and we'll make it good as new and send it back!
Will the Range Dog work for FITA Tournaments?
The Range Dog is large enough to hold an 80cm target so it will not work for 90 and 70 meters where a 122cm face is needed. It will however work for the 2 shorter distances. We would also like to point out that it is the perfect size for a field course. All the field targets fit on it and it is perfect because it is not excessively big so taking it through the course to set up is easy.
How long does a target last?
This is a difficult question to answer exactly but we have seen some of our targets lasting between 10,000 - 30,000 shots. Our bigger targets such as the Range Dog and the K9 last even longer. The thing that makes our targets different is that even when they wear out all you need to do is install a new face and they are basically brand new again. The inside of our targets basically lasts forever so as long as you keep the face in good shape it might last you forever!
Can I shoot broadheads at the Bulldog targets?
The archery targets that we currently offer are not meant for broadheads. We will be releasing a broadhead model in the future. Our entire current line up is just for field points.
My target has a spot on it that the arrow almost goes all the way through but the rest is fine. Why is this?
Because of the nature of our targets this can from time to time happen. It simply happens because there is a certain spot that has been hit a lot or has a small void. It is really easy to fix. Lay the target down on its face and stand up on top of it. Step up and down and in various spots on the target and this will redistrubute the inside, correcting the problem.
Can I leave my target out in the rain?
Your Bulldog target can withstand the rain no problem. The main issue with leaving it outside for extended periods of time is actually not the rain, it is the sun. The sun will dry out the face and also fade the target circles on the target. It's perfectly fine to leave it out for a few days here and there but if you are done after hunting season we would recommend storing it inside for the off season.
Can I shoot Crossbows going 300fps+ at the Bulldog targets?
Absolutely! All of our targets will stop crossbows.... However we Highly recommend our 12" thick series. This would included the DogHouse XP and the Doghouse FF and the DoubleDog FF for crossbows. These three will last much longer for crossbow use.

What is the best way to pin a paper target to the FF (Flat Face Series)
We have found the the best method for pinning targets to your DogHouse FF, DoubleDog FF, RangeDog, and K9 Targets are with a long nail with a plastic washer. Golf Tee's tend to be a bit hard to push in. There are a few target pins on the market that work well. For example:

Is there anything I can do to extend the life of my target?
Yes there is - shoot sharp points! By this we mean if you have a field point on your arrow that is blunt, or dull, or has hit something hard and has a jagged edge, put a new point on it. The design of our targets is such that when an arrow enters it slips between the weave of the target and really hardly damages the face. When you pull the arrow out the fibers heal back up behind it. However if you have a badly damaged point, or a dull bullet point it wears out the fibers a lot quicker.
