Just set up two $5 hay bales and spray painted with paint leftover from other projects. Won't last long but will last through the season. 6 targets to disperse the wear on the hay so the arrows don't pass through as soon. I used 1 hay bale last season so this is a redneck upgrade!



Ready to be shooting a lot of arrows. Plan is to shoot accurate out to 30 yd but mainly shoot deer at 20 and under. Got a dozen Easton Bloodline arrows in correct spine, cut to length, fletched, and with 100 gr field points installed thanks to EnergyWave archery up in Hermitage. Already shot a few times with them and now ready to start getting good for deer season.

Get ready to jump that fence to retrieve arrows that blew through the hay bale.

I didn't even think of this! I have 3 hay bales in my shed!

They will blow through eventually but I used it last year and it worked. Got a styrofoam block behind the hay to help stop the arrows.

If you wrapped a couple ratchet straps around the bales it would help tighten them up some but I don't see them stopping the arrows without a backer of some sort.

I think everyone's missing the "i did this last year with one hay bale" comment.

Looks good Catman! I think the styrofoam block behind it will help in the event it does go through.

I doubt that'll last, but it might.

Get a blob style target. I have one thats about 4x2.5ft.. my buddy owned it for ten years and shot broadheads through it. He got it for free. Its made out of refridgerater insulation.

If you plan on shooting a lot of arrows that ain't going to work. You need a Blob, Rinehart or a range bag.

I got a piece of old OSB board and threw it behind the bales. I dont know if last year's hay bale was packed better or what, but all my arrows got stuck into the OSB so bad I only pulled one out and was about to bust from sweating in the heat so I went inside and will have to pull them out later. Maybe these bales of hay just aren't packed as tight. Will re arrange my setup. Can't afford a blob target but might have to get one of those hard packed foam type sooner or later.
