Great Free FP Target

Just thought that I would share this with everyone. Maybe it's old news but here it is anyway. I collected feed sacks from the guys baiting with corn at the hunt camp. These are the white plastic woven fabric type as seen next to the finished target below. I balled them up one at a time and started shoving them into a bag I made out of a piece of burlap tied like a tootsie roll on the end. Kept shoving bags in until I couldn't get another in and still be able to tie off the other end. Spray paint some dots and voila- target. I have been shooting this thing like crazy and it is holding up like a champ. Roll it over, stand it up, whatever angle you want is good to shoot at. By the way, I shot the group from 40 yards with my brand new z28. I have only had the bow for 2 months or so and it is my first compound in 22 years. I couldn't be more tickled with my progress. I think that if I keep shooting 100 arrows or so a day that I'll be in the zone with this bow come fall. What'cha think?

nice

target and progress. I make my targets myself. I actually have some poly bags that are a little thicker than the ones you buy deer corn in and I stuff them full of whatever I can find. Bags like you have used..worn out t shirts and socks work great. Also if you have a textile mill nearby they gave me a couple of thousands of yards of 2nds 2 stuff my bags with.

One tip. Dont shoot them with broadheads it will blister through your target so fast it will make your head spin. I thought I would save some money and stack two of these together and shoot broadheads into it. Instead I ended up losing an arrow because it sliced and diced all that cloth inside so fast there was no friction to stop the arrow.

"One tip. Dont shoot them with broadheads"
Yeah, I was thinking that it would be no good for broadheads. Are the cardboard targets good for bh practice?
