Homemade Target?

I've heard a lot about people making targets out of bags stuffed with old cloths and plastic bags.
Here's my questions: does crumbled newspaper work?

i doubt it. (especially if it gets wet)... get your hands on the largest burlap or poly bags you can find and stuff them with used shrink wrap, try to find the used shrink wrap at grocery stores, warehouses etc. stuff the bag very full, compressed tight. this works great for field/target points, not as well for broadheads.

I found that shrink wrap targets can be really tough to pull carbon arrows out of. The arrows seem to melt the plastic on impact. A release agent(silicone)helps some, but it's still a pain in the butt pulling them out.

What do the bag type commercial targets have in them?
