Default DIY Arrow Target

Thinking on building one and I was going to use one of the large feed bags for the outside material. I think they are woven poly fabric. Anyone use them to make their targets?

Another vote for Third Hand Archery bags and faces. I built a 48 x 48 and love it.

Feed bags will work, but they get shot out very quickly.

I've played with a couple different designs, best I've found is a cardboard box stuffed as tightly as possible with plastic bags or shrink wrap with 5-7 layers of those foam mats they use for daycare floors (they snap together like jigsaw puzzle pieces) ratchet strapped or shrink wrapped onto the front. Most videos I see stop at stuffing the box with bags but you'll get pass throughs if you're shooting any significant poundage with broadheads on, the foam mats stop everything cold.

When I was on the S. Tx lease, our corn supplier used the white woven bags. I would take one, stuff it with furniture/mattress stuffing good & tight, then stick it inside another bag and sew the top shut with paracord or something like it. Spray paint 3 dots on it on each side and you are good to go. When you eventually start getting partial pass-thrus, throw it on the ground and stomp/kick/roll it to redistribute the stuffing, put it in a new sack, and get back to shooting. If I was making one today, I would collect pallet wrap/plastic bags and use them as they are water resistant.
