DIY field practice target?
 
I’m looking for ideas on the easiest/best way to create a target that can be easily carried to a field for deployment as an aim point. I don’t want a portable basket. I’m not trying to practice ace runs, and therefore it’s basically just way heavier than I want.

A not great idea I had would be to get a surveyors stick from a home improvement store, slap a cheap ball golf pin flag on top, and then take a bucket of sand to stick the pin down in.

The bucket of sand would be, again, much heavier than I want.

Thought I had just now: I have a cheap tripod I’m going to retire because one piece of it is not in optimal shape. I could figure out how to put a flag on top of that. Although, I wonder if that would just end up getting blown over too often.

Home improvement stores have driveway markers so you know where to plow in the snow. Cheap, thin flagstick like, and just stick down into the ground easily. Lightweight, bright colors, less than a dollar.

Call me simple but if I need a target I just use my bag.

Every month or so, someone in our local group posts how they are doing fieldwork and someone will run up and steal their discs. So I'm pretty terrified that someone would take my bag.

I feel terrible for those who lost discs, but that's pretty damn funny not gonna lie. People are pathetic.

Some little disc goblin terrorizing the fields!

^ Tree trunk, telephone pole, stop sign, bush, etc. are my usual field work targets. Shame there aren't any trees in NC. ;)

Driveway marker is a good idea, too. Can probably mail-order if not available locally.

In the same vein, the ones that crack me up are the stories of people playing holes next to the road. They throw their drive. Then a car passing by on the street slams on the brakes, the passenger gets out and runs and grabs the disc, gets back in the car and the car drives off.
