I have always just used tgtadm for setting up iscsi targets myself. I
know that scsi-target-utils is a "tech preview" in RHEL however I am not
sure its status in Fedora.
I've been using "netbsd-iscsi" for setting up targets. I found that to be a

# extents file start length
extent0 /root/iscsistorage 0 size
# target flags storage netmask
target0 rw extent0 192.168.2.0/24
After that I have /root/iscsistorage available as a target and it gets
setup properly on boot.
With tgtadm I couldn't get it to setup the target automatically on boot and
