Title: Archery target with replaceable target section

Abstract: An archery target includes a target body section having a target section aperture formed therein and a replaceable target section adapted to fit in the target section aperture. The replaceable target section is held in place in the target section aperture by one or more support rods extending through support rod apertures formed in the body section and the replaceable target section. The support rods may also extend into other target body sections, to hold the target body sections together to form a structurally stable archery target. A replaceable target insert may be positioned in a target insert aperture formed in the replaceable target section. The replaceable target insert may be held in place in the replaceable target section by a support rod extending therethrough. The archery target is easily disassembled by removing the support rods to remove the replaceable target insert and/or replaceable target section therefrom to replace the replaceable target section and/or target insert when it becomes excessively damaged due to arrow strikes. Thus, the life of the archery target is extended, and the operating cost thereof reduced, by providing for replacement of portions of the archery target which are likely to become more damaged than other portions of the archery target. An archery target in accordance with the present invention may be molded of a polyurethane foam material in the shape and size of a game animal.
