Deer in my orchid houses...........

Just kidding.

Had a lot of time on my hands while in level 4 lockdown so I decided to make a couple of training aids with what I had in the shed. ( Actually, what I had in mind was to play a practical joke on one of our hunting buddies)
A quick look around and I found what I needed and after an afternoons work I ended up with these...

Made a pattern, then cut the shapes out of corflute from some of dads old election hoardings, covered the cutout with sticky backed plastic like schoolkids use to cover their books, then painted them brown with leftover camo spray cans I used on my duck boat and some matt black spray paint.
The plan was to set them up in the bush in a safe area and then use them for practicing standing shots at different ranges. Because of the plastic, they will act like splash targets and the holes will show up white.
Might try them out on saturday.....
Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....
