Delta 3D Animal Targets take over Abbeys top floor
Dec 05: Some 2 months late, on Christmas Eve, a 40 foot sea container-the biggest container we have ever received, finally arrived, full to the brim with 3D (three dimensional) animals, practice layered block, bag & foam targets from Delta Sports Products. (If you are using Internet Explorer or Firefox as your browser, hover your cursor over each image to read the photo captions) Whenever we receive a large shipment, we always joke that this is a customer magnet as invariably when all hands are needed on deck to unload the order, customers arrive at our pro shop at that very time-but we are not complaining as we always love to see folks. We were most grateful for the fantastic help provided by our very valued dealer, Mitch of Lakeside Archery Supplies and his friend Greg who toiled in the full sun, throughout the whole 4 or so hours it took to unpack the container and store all the animals and targets away.
Our mezzanine floor resembles a zoo, but not for long, as we have received many orders & enquiries, so we do not expect these targets to last. In our Delta range, we are keeping in stock
- 20 varieties of animals
- 4 of critters (Raccoon, Porcupine, Red Fox and Woodchuck or groundhog, unfamiliar in Australia, but the major hole-digging mammal over much of eastern North America)
- 5 vitals (portions that easily slip in to the target to replace the shot out section of the animal)
- 7 round targets made of Ethafoam, a wound closing material that is made especially for recurve archers
- square targets made of medium density foam especially popular for backyard target practice
Delta Sports Products, the No 2 target manufacturer in the world, announced on 1st December 2005, that it had purchased the No 1 target company, McKenzie Targets and with the merger, will move all manufacturing to the Delta plant, but still keep the McKenzie warehousing facility to service customers on the US east coast.
We are very excited about this merger and wish Delta every success. This means Abbey will now represent and stock McKenzie Targets in addition to Delta Targets.
