Re: HOMEMADE BROADHEAD TARGET
Was using homemade archery targets, fifteen years before the recession. In fact, never bought a new fancy archery target.
Use foam insulation from the building supply stores, cut up into 2' x 2' squares. I put newspaper between the 2' x 2' sheets. Gives a little more support. Use masking tape to fasten the sides.
A thin, light target, that I can carry with my bow to my hidden private sites. Nothing is left behind for a trespasser to discover. Carry in; carry out.
Braced by sticks, the arrow is stopped, but not completely embedded in foam plastic. After a target is hit by a broadhead fired arrow, I merely have to unscrew the exposed broadhead, causing less damage to the foam when pulling out the arrow.
Instead of having a target as long as the arrow, I only use enough foam and paper to stop the arrow completely. With enough distance to protect the vanes.
