Delta McKenzie Swamp Buck 3D Archery Target
Looks great a little small in the vital area for a Midwestern buck but overall a good looking target

Sturdy Construction? Not very likely
I don't agree with the "sturdy construction" description of this item one bit. I've had the target for about 2 1/2 weeks and the vitals are falling apart -- I do not use broadheads on the target. The overall look is fine and setup was easy, but I have used less expensive targets that held up longer and with little destruction on the vitals area. I got this on sale so I'm not going to compalin too much, but I would not spend full price (close to $100)for this item if I am need of another target.

Great Target for the Money
I received this target as a gift, and use it 3-4 times a week. The target is lifelike and sturdy. I shoot it with both field points and Rage practice broadheads. It stops both without any problems. The only minor complaints that I would have are that it is difficult to remopve the arrows from the target (especially field points), and that the vital area looks like it will wear out quickly from the practice broadheads. I've only had it a few weeks, so I probably put 200 arrows or so in it. The holes from the field points heal well but the broadheads chew up the target. Even with those comments, I would definitely recommend this target. It is fun to shoot at, and provides good practice for shooting at the real thing.

Pretty Decent Target Hard to Pull Arrows
Small affordable target but still not top quality. I shoot a diamond black ice at 70 lbs and stuggle to pull arrows out. And the head falls off. How hard is it to make a target with a head that stays on. C'mon man!!

Core comes out to easy and the antlers don't stay in tight.

Shootable, but open for improvement
This is an okay target; being my first 3-D target, I have enjoyed the ability to shoot a simulated animal. But it is not short on flaws. The foam head-piece's insert bracket broke away from the deer during transport to and from the shooting area on the second trip. Also, the legs are made of hard plastic, which if shot with an arrow through the foam (shooting from a stand at about 20 yards), hold the arrow significantly. Be prepared to bring a friend to sit on the target as you vigorously tug at your arrow to remove it from the target.

Good product for the price
Works fine for the price. Wouldnt want to shoot at it 100 times a day or use broadheads in it.

Great 3D target within my budget
So far, I have put 300+ arrows into this target. At this point, it barely looks as though its been touched. The vitals are still in great shape and I dont see any need to replace them anytime soon. I haven't experienced any of the other complaints I've seen from other reviews, such as the head coming off. I purchased this 3d target because it was made by delta and was within my price range. So far, it has been WELL worth the $ and I have no complaints. I only gave this target a 4 because the higher price targets are larger, and there for more realistic. Although, in the long run, that may be an advantage. "Aim small, miss small."
