So I got a source of free Styrofoam sheets on Craigs list. All it cost me was a roll of duct tape. So far this is what I got. I will post more pics in the future.

Cool idea, keep us posted on wear & tear.

Will do. I actually need a little more duct tape.

I got the Target all painted white with foundation paint called dri-lok. I got it free from work. So I'm going to paint small bullseyes all over it. What color do you guys recommend? What's good at long distances?

There is something wrong with it. I think you better start shooting at it and put it out of its misery. Nice work 96xj.

Thanks man. What I didn't tell everyone is that is at a new house. My family and I moved to a new house we are renting. That's why progress on the Target and post count has slowed to a crawl.

I'm 2 rolls of duct tape in. 10 bucks. Give or take. I've got plenty of spray paint laying around the house.

Awesome! Styrofoam rarely is lying around for me. When it is,is busted all up and not enough to mess with. That is professional looking at least. But let us know on the durability of it. Looks great! ............gonna post some cardboard box targets I have been getting a lot of use out of.

wonder if you're going to get some residue from the tape on your arrow.

I've only had time to put about 5 arrows it it so far. I haven't noticed any glue from the tape on my arrows. However with all that Styrofoam and massive amounts of tightly wound tape, it is very tough to pull arrows.
I will not be keeping this Target outside in the weather. It will live in the shed until use.

What do you put inside of the cardboard box? I feel like my arrow would pass right through if its empty.
