    Default Need cheap archery backstop

    I recently picked up a bow to do some target shooting in my backyard. Although I hit the target 90% of the time, I do miss sometimes and arrows end up in the woods behind my house.

    I see you can buy backstop netting, but it is expensive. Is there a cheap and easy way to make a 6 x 6 backstop ?

    Alot of folks use stall mats as a final backstop. Or you can stack cut up old carpet and compress it under lumber using threaded rods.

    Also search DIY archery targets on Youtube. you can make a simple box, tarp it front and back, then fill it with packing plastic. Seems to work well if packed tight.
