It would help if we knew what the close distance and far distance  your wanting the  single target  to be  for .  If its 55 yards  the standard  opening of a field target  target is right at 38.1 mm  down to 10 yards  with a 9.5 mm   hole .

I am so new to this venue I almost hate to post anything.  I am not sure what type of events GTA has in mind for its official targets but if competitive scoring is involved I would like to see the little USBR targets to be incorporated in some of the fun designs.  I am not an expert in copyrights but I am pretty sure they would ok another groups use of that size scoring rings if permission is needed.  They were designed for rimfire but are very challenging.

Yeah it is.... I'll run it through the printer/scanner at home and print one on card stock when I need one.

If y'all want, I'll modify it to read GTA and repost it.

That is a great idea. A wanted poster target for each of the small game species we tend to pursue... Hmmm

Cory, your target with the coyote, rabbit and squirrel is suitable for framing. I like it.

I like the orange/black combinations of lettering/trim - ads a distinctive touch.

Also like the different colors in and around the bull.

Great job,  Cory !
