I,m trying to find a place to buy some whitetail targets
for rifle use. Anyone have any ideas where I can get some.

Well, here's what I have used in the past for a target when practicing with my handgun at 100yds. I took an archery target, you know the ones....full color pic of a deer (I used deer, bear)...the kind with the little white vital area lines drawn on them. Took some elmers glue, glued the targets to big, heavy sheets of cardboard (made the targets last longer) and made myself some nice real-life looking, real-life size targets. It just added a little more.....excitement to my range time.

Where did you find your targets at? I can't seem to find
them around my area.
I took a life-size target and cut around it to make a template then layed it on a pc of cardboard and traced around it. After cutting around the trace marks on the cardboard I have a lifesize cardboard deer that I can lay down on cardboard and spray paint around to make a target. After spray painting several I also use a pencil to mark the lung-heart-liver areas, which can't be seen thru a scope, and now have a reference point to see where my shots hit. I never put a dot or X on the targets because deer simply don't have them too :D
I also use these targets just for fun not to sight in the firearm of choice, that should always be done with a target made for that purpose.
Look on the store shelves now for hunting magazines that give away free life-size targets. That is how I got mine :D

Local archery shop......I think I have even seen them in K-mart or Wally World sometimes.
