The simple way to do this is take a pallet, cut it into 8-9 inch pieces, then simply nail them horizontal to your trees at the desired angle. Then use a clamp, (or screw them on if you have the means and time to take them down again) to attach your targets. This method gives you the 'rat up a tree' effect, but ALL knockdown targets work sideways and look great, even the squirrel and big crow targets. For uprights use a stump with plank nailed direct on top, or use the very professional metal brackets that we and many others use. REMEMBER TO SPRAY A YELLOW MARK ON THE TREE OR YOU WILL NEVER FIND THEM!!
