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!!
Please get permission from the landowner.....especially if the ground you shoot on is rented like ours before nailing, screwing and putting paint marks on trees with spray paint. I now opt for a bright piece of string which can be removed easily to denote where a bracket is.
