We just use a 6 inch piece of bailing wire that is bent into a u shape and 6" foam targets then stick it to the bails. we also put up a peice of mine belting behind the bails to help keep the arrows from going completely through the bails as well. But make sure you use a bullet round nose type of point otherwise if you shooting a power full bow it will stick into the rubber mine belt quite well.

3" or so Double headed nails... They hold well and the double head acts as a handle grip to pull them out.

I bought como burlap on clearance at wal-Mart for $5. Wrapped a piece around the front of hay bale and attached with ring shanked spikes on the sides (Brown side out, camo side in). spraypianted a target on the face with cheap paint. Works great, lasts way longer than paper. Snowed on it last week, dried out and kept on working.
