I've used all kinds of targets in years past, compressed cardboard, styrofoam blocks, reinforced hay bales, and commercial foam targets. I recently bought a 25$ "Hips Target" from SW and I'm blowing arrows in past the vanes with it at 25 yds. What a piece of crap!!
So i took some 3" thick Insulfoam I had laying around and tried that stacked up and I ended up having to CUT the arrows out!! Man that stuff is dense!! Only had about 4" of penetration and arrows were practically melted into the target!!
Anyway, my question is what are you guys using for a practice target? Both homemade and commercial. I need to come up with something quick and I get irritated paying 60$ or more for a commercial target block thats nothing more than layered foam sheets!!
