4-4.5' target a 'bit high' Although I do guess that these are about the
heights that the ones at Pennsic use. Which can be a bit high for a short
person. If you have a 5' tall archer, their arms are just going to reach
the top of the target.
Alot of it is personal preference. But I do still say, as long as it isn't
on the ground, and as long as it isn't 'too high that people can't reach it
& overshots go REALLY over', then I think almost anything in between is
