    Thumbs up Target DIY!!!

    Needed to replace my last DIY target. So here is how I did it.

    These are signs that are corrugated plastic. You can get it at your local sign shop or see if the coke guy has any he is going to throw away.

    I first bend the signs in the middle.

    I cut up some plywood old stuff I had laying around. Old pallets what ever you have. I then staple it to the corners.

    Then cut some more supports for all the edges and staple them in. forgot to mention I cut this one in half 15" deep and got 2 targets out of it.

    Once the supports are in I use house wrap as a facing folding the edges and stapling it to the supports keep it tight. Then start filling I used old clothes with no buttons zippers. Plus the layer in between is plastic wrap

    Second facing goes over that. Some plywood to flatten it with weight. Then pull tight and staple to the supports

    One last thing guys. If you make one of these full size. 3'x 4.5' you will need to put some supports down the center of the outer walls so there will be no bulging.

    I have one ThirdHand Rag Bag. Got it stuffed with plastic wrap from local stores. Man, you can stomp a lot of plastic in the Rag Bags. One inside back side I have a couple of old blue jeans folded up. Plastic gets wore you can hear a arrow hit from 60 yards back...Whomp! Just re-arrange the plastic of stomp more in and shoot some more. Mine has the metal rings in the corners and even ThirdHand can't remember when they last used the metal rings. It has to be going of 9 or 10 years old, but I mostly use it for 40 yards and more and all but a few weeks when new, it's hung outside, no cover. It's even hardly faded.

    I have found that the easiest way to repair my shot out block targets is to use a broom handle and push plastic grocery bags into the shot out part really tight and then foam over the top. It really slows down an arrow quick. Good job Hutch with the picture tutorial.
