    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.

    supports.jpgstapled corners.jpg
    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

    here is a rope handle drill into the support and tie inside

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

    Done. Then a point blank shot and its good. Two finger pullout. Yeah I like that!!!

    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.

    Great job Hutch! I wish I could use bag targets still. The half-outserts my arrows use get bent if you shoot them into a bag type target. Wish I didn't love these arrows so much. lol
