This target is a great alternative to the Prairie Dog Spring Popper if you're looking to save a little money. Just make sure you have the right kind of soil to support it. If it's too hard or too soft it won't properly support it.
I purchased these prairie dog targets for a more portable option. They are reasonably sized, light weight, well-priced, and they easily stab into the ground once I get to the range. The quality is definitely there, and they are a fun plinking option that I use with .22 to 9mm.
Target holds up well
Bought two of the 15 inch targets. Shot them at 250 yards and 345 yards with:
-6.5 Creedmoor 140 grain SSTs
-22-250 with hot 50gr hand loads going just over 4000fps at the muzzle
-223 fmj and vmax
-308 150 grain SP and FMJ
Paint chipped off which is expected but very minimal dimpling even with the 22-250 which has put good sized divots in AR500 at extended ranges. Springs are strong and give a good feedback when the targets are hit solidly. Lots more fun than shooting a square steel plate!
15 and 12” Prairie dog stake popper
This was my third purchase from Brad over the last two years. As always, shipping was fast, packaging superb. These are fantastic, easy portability, quick set up and takedown. Workmanship and quality is EXCELLENT! Thank you very much Brad!
Great practice tool
I've been practicing for a up coming Prarie Dog hunt. These worked out great. Set them at 150, 200, and 300 yards to learn range estimate based on a 15" height. Your product was easy to assemble and performed perfectly.
Great quality, fast delivery. I would highly recommend.
