Can I prevent a permanent from becomeing the target of a spell/ability by giving it hexproof/shroud in response?

Say, I have Illusionary Servant in play and the opponent targets it with the ability of Benalish Trapper. Can I prevent it from becoming a target and thus being destroyed by playing Plaxmanta in response?

In other words, does a permanent become the target of an ability once the target is declared and the ability goes onto the stack or once the target is checked again and the ability resolves?
