I have the bass pro shop brand of the block type target,with the layered foam.I've had it now for about 3 months and I shoot it almost everyday and to say the least it is wore out!My arrows started passing through it about a week ago so I put a Rachet Strap around it and tightened it as tight as i could get it and low and behold it works.It pulls the layers of foam together.It don't stop them like brand new, but it doesn't allow any pass thrus!!Gave me a little more use out of it.Just thought i'd share that with yall,im sure someone has already done it,but i haven't seen it posted.

i got this idea from my bro in law... get a old feed sack and stuff it as tight as you can with old clothes and staple the end together and it works like a charm for me. spray paint a little target on it and you ready to shoot.... old blue jeans are good to use. just an idea thought i would share.

The way I build a target is to get an old worn out commercial carpet and cut it into 24"x24" squares ,stack the carpet about 2' high then proceed to cut 2 pieces of 1/2" plywood ,one for the top of the stack and the other one for the bottom , then get some commercial strapping and compress the whole stack, paint a target and you are finish . shoot away!!!
