    Things I learned. 1. These mats are heavy! Build Wanted wheels so it could be moved around my yard. Used 2 mats to make sure it would not hit the siding. Back one is fixed while the front one is only attached at the top so it can swing and absorb more force.

    Is a backstop net safe enough for a 40Lbs recurve bow with carbon field arrows? Can a backstop net be kept outside in the rain and sun? If it is, which backstop net should I buy? If not what can I use instead?

    I am wanting to set up a target at work. We have a warehouse that will allow me to shot 17 yards. The problem is that the backstop is an adjoining wall to another business. Basic 2x4 drywalled wall. I am trying to figure out what material to use behind my target to keep my arrows from passing...

    Aside from not placing a bulls-eye right between the bales, what have you done to stop an arrow from passing between the bales?

    I am looking for some ideas for building a range in my yard, so I'm starting a discussion on a way that I can build a backstop behind my target. My property borders some railroad tracks and on the other side is someone's house. Though I don't miss the target a lot, I want to be sure I am being...

    Hi all, I just got into traditional archery about a year ago at 49 years old. I love it. I wish I would have discovered it 40 years ago. To learn as much as I can as fast as I can, I have researched many aspects of traditional archery on the internet and watched a lot of YouTube videos on...

    Does anyone have any experience with the JVD or Bearpaw nets? I searched for info about them but found very little. Are they any good? I would need one mostly for bows up to 45 pounds, but it would be great if it could stop a stray arrow from a 60+. I use field/combo points only and Easton...

    Hi everyone, I have a diamond infinite edge that i got in February and its my first bow. I added a whisker biscuit and a stabilizer, but kept the sight the same. Apparently the sight is plastic so it moves easily when in pressure like in my bow case and whenever i backyard shoot and my Block...

    Harbor freight tools sells a reasonably priced mesh tarp that looks (from the web picture) similar to dedicated (and pricier) archery netting: It comes in various sizes: 12ft x 19ft, 8ft x 16ft, 10ft x 12ftand 8ft x 10ft. Anyone tried it as a backstop?
  12. General Archery Discussion
    This is my first post and I am new to archery so bear with me. I am going to be getting a compound bow to shoot in my backyard. I have 2 acres but I was wondering what I can buy or build to go behind the target just incase I miss; which will be lucky. I believe the bow I am looking at shoots...

    I am trying to get ideas for a backstop that I can use that will stop arrows (if they go threw the target and threw the straw bayles) and not ruin the arrows. I was using a 1/4" thick bedmat that I found but it is impossible to get a arrow back out of it, they break everytime! I am going to...
  15. PSE Archery Discussion
    Has PSE stopped selling backstops/string stops separately? My dealer was supposed to get one when I ordered my wife's Chaos (he 'forgot') four months ago and now he "can't get one"! They are not on the web sight either. So can anyone recommend an aftermarket string stop that's not all rigged...

    For inside and outdoor enjoyment and safety. With the bag stand and backstop combo, I can shoot out to longer distances than 20 yards with my traditional bow safely now with the 6x6x backstop right behind the target bag.... backstop.bag stand shooting
  17. Traditional Archery
    Decided to do a psudeo-tear-down backstop and bag stand combo that I could use in basement and also transport in back of pickup to a local field or friend's backyard to shoot long range. Want to shoot longer distances and with bag so small and yard smaller, I made this up. Straps holding bag...

    I am building a range at my cabin for 3D. I got a Rinehart standing grizzly, but the range is facing my garage and I don't want to wreck my arrows, or my garage. I want to build a backstop. Any ideas? I am shooting at 343fps.
