I was provided three games to try including Tic Tac Takeover, Hearts and Spades, and BattleFISH. Other games available include 3-Out Baseball, ENDZONE Football, Spendin’ Money, Traditional DART Board, and Cornhole (Bags). Dart Bags have also developed REAL SERIES targets including deer, turkey, and bow fish. In case you have a youth shooter who participates in a shooting club, Dart Bags has created the Enternity Center Rings target. Dart Bags LLC has something for every shooter!

How Dart Bags Work:

Dart Bags have an adhesive backing that makes the target reusable. Each target measures 18 inches by 18 inches. All you have to do is peel the paper backing off the target and place it on your target. I put Dart Bags on both bag and block style targets. Be sure to keep the paper backing in order to save and reuse the Dart Bags target.

Field Testing:

Shooting often keeps you in practice for bow hunting and 3D shoots. Looking at the same old target gets boring rather quick. I pulled out one of the Dart Bags I knew my husband and I would both enjoy; Hearts and Spades. We did one round just to get an idea of how we were going to play the game and quickly made up rules. After a couple of rounds of shooting, the game turned very competitive and more rules ensued. While I’m not sure who actually won, we both enjoyed ourselves very much all while getting in some good practice time. Shooting at cards not only helped me shoot for a smaller target, it also helped realize how my bow was grouping. The next day I shot by myself. Instead of shooting for the best hand, I attempted to group my shots into one specific card. As I was shooting, my husband walked outside. I asked him to call out a card to shoot. This helped with target acquisition. For more game specific practice, I put REAL SERIES Deer on the other side of the target. It was nice to shoot at a realistic deer as part of my training for the upcoming deer season.

I had planned to take my cousin, Jonah, out for his first archery hunt. He had never shot archery equipment. We allowed him to shoot at a target just so he could get used to shooting. After he was comfortable shooting the crossbow, I put the BattleFISH game on the target. The spots on the fish gave him something to focus on instead of just a general area. I grabbed my bow, and we took turns shooting; I think he actually beat me! The whole experience  was very pleasing for him as he was able to play a game while learning how to shoot. I shot at the BattleFISH target myself while sighting in some new broad heads. I liked the white background as it made my shot placement stand out.

Dart Bags are very durable. You can shoot them time and time again. I have literally left Hearts and Spades on my bag target for months, and it is still sticking despite rain, heat, and wind throughout the summer. One day during a dry spell in the summer, I took a garden hose to see if I could get Dart Bags to fall of the target. Much to my surprise, Dart Bags stood the test, and I could only get a corner to peel away a slight bit.

Dart Bags are reusable. I took one of the Dart Bags off the target and put it back on the paper backing. I put it back on the target the next day, and it still stuck with no problems. It saves you in the long run as you do not have to throw the Dart Bags away when you want to play a different game.
