I have a pair of old full length arrows that are lashed together 4" from the top with paracord and superglued in place.

the tip sockets are 8/32 thread I believe and you can fashion extensions and jam nuts to make them adjustable with another piece of arrow and some field points. They work well, and are quiet after some application of electrical tape. I also was thinking about filling them with expando foam. I had all the parts laying around...so I guess they were free.

If I was gonna go buy anything to use for this, i'd get a pair of fiberglass rod driveway reflectors from home depot. they are 42" long and the reflector is just glued on. snap it off, and paint them flat black you'll be good to go.

they are near the mailboxes.

I bought on from wally world for $10 last year and it works awesome. It packs to about 18" and extends to probably 48". Has a simple "Y" top to rest your gun on. The only thing I would recommend is to run a screw in the side where the "Y" goes into the alum tube since it seems to wiggle loose after extended use.

wooden dowl rods and a nut and bolt, if your really feeling into it drill some holes into the bottom of the dowls and cut of the heads of screws and glue them in, for a good solid point in the ground

Where I have a stand with potential for over 80 yd. shots, I usually have a bipod or tripod lashed together with nylon string using typical square lashings. making a tripod really makes the unit much more stable.
