The first is for target practice. Usually these targets are made in a block shape and are portable, like the Rinehart 18-1 Target. The second type of target is made to resemble life-sized animals, and is used for hunting practice. These targets range in size from bear and deer, to smaller animals such as bobcats and turkeys.
