Want to stay sharp this offseason? Here are a few targets that'll keep you on point throughout the summer.

Viking Solutions Adjustable Stand and Gong
Use the included hardware and chains to attach the 16-inch, half-inch-thick AR500 steel gong—or any target of your choosing—to a 2x4 (not included), slide on the lightweight yet sturdy aluminum legs and you’re ready for fun. To hang multiple targets, just use a longer 2x4. Legs are adjustable for height. MSRP: $129.99; vikingsl.com.

Delta McKenzie Baby Daddy Buck
The smallest target in the new “Daddy” series, its realistic design and color helps prepare you for the real thing. Self-healing foam material lasts through thousands of shots and is built for easy arrow removal. Horizontal joint construction means target won’t fall apart. Ground stakes included. MSRP: $129.99; dmtargets.com.

Block Vault Archery Target
Touted as the toughest Block yet, the fused, multi-layer core of this target stops arrows from recurves, crossbows and everything in between. Four sides provide offset targets from precision squares to deer vitals. Designed for long life and easy arrow pulling. Available in medium, large, XL and XXL. MSRP: $109.99-$179.99; feradyne.com/block.

Champion VisiColor Targets
For precision shooters and hunters alike, each target reacts with a colorful “hit” you can’t miss. Use the Deer Target with outlined vital zones or try one of Champion’s new offerings like the antelope, deer or bear in the Real Life Big Game Series. Adhesive Sight-In Target has a 1-inch windage and elevation grid. MSRP: $10.45-$27.49; championtarget.com.

Birchwood Casey Print-N-C Targets

Safe to use in laser and inkjet printers. Three 8.5x11-inch blank sheets included in each pack. MSRP: $11.20; birchwoodcasey.com.

Rinehart Pyramid Archery Target
Weighing 7 pounds and standing only 14 inches tall, this target is ideal for the truck or trunk, or for any archer who wants to fling a few arrows at a moment’s notice. Pyramid design provides four shooting sides with MOA grid aiming dots for easy sight alterations. Tough foam material will last. Carry handle attached. MSRP: $69.99; rinehart3d.com.
