This has not been mentioned for a while and I know it is a little late in the season but maybe you have shoot your target to pieces and are thinking about making a change.

A couple of years ago after shooting our targets to pieces I decided to make my own. Now I did the cheapest possible build and my son got much more creative with his build but mine works.

I have a large cardboard box (22" square) that I filled with a variety of shopping bags and a little closed cell packing foam. Easiest arrow removal I have ever tried and I shoot all 4 sides until it is shot to pieces. I then get another large box and move my filler material over to it. I have to add filler material occasionally but the bags are free. Since the target is really cheap I will leave it out sometimes for days at a time so I can just go shoot whenever I want to. So far the deer haven't chewed on it to much.

Spend a little more money up front on a Rhinehart Target and u will happier with the quality and longevity compared to lesser brand or gone made targets. Rhinehart Targets take a licking and keep on ticking.....lol i only own one target now and that's my Rhinehart 18 in one......tra

You are lot braver than I am. I got tired of replacing arrows and I will not shoot the same bulls eyes twice in a row. Especially when using those lighted nocks. I am only taking 3 arrows with me down the hill each morning now. 3 shots then go retrieve my arrows. That allows me to walk around and shoot from other angles or distances. My collection of broken nocks and split shafts is more than I want it to be
