    This is what I have been using for a Target. I cut a piece of foam insulation from homedepot into 16"x16 squares and taped them together. I figure when I start getting pass thru's I will fill it with spray foam or add a few more layers of foam. It has already been hit with probably 150 arrows and it seems to be holding up well.
    I have been trying to find the plain old white Styrofoam sheets to make a BH target. Is yours blue or white? Back home (MN) you can find it for $10 a 4'x8'x2" but I can't find any around Altus. All they have is the blue spendy stuff that is like $30 for 1/2" sheet.

    MLN, go to the grocery store and ask them for the Styrofoam containers that the grapes come in. I get a few of them and cut some and stuff them in one of the others. Two together with duct tape wrapped around them and they cost only 2 dollars for the duct tape.

    good ideas there guys ..

    @ bowgramp59 its the subconscious fear of missing... Just how it is , takes some practice and forcing your self to shoot the outer spots..

    Thanks Hutch. That looks kinda thin, I'm surprised you aren't having pass-thrus with BHs?

    MLN, I fill 2 of them with the foam and duct tape them together. That makes them double thick. With 30 shots into them I didn't have any pass tru's. The broad head sticks out the back 3" or less. If you were concerned use 3. We used 2 filled with foam and broadhead tuned 3 bows with no problems.
