I just bought burlap material from Hobby Lobby on clearance, but did not know they would sew it up! $2 a yard.

I put a bunch of old clothes and the guts of a previous target into one of these and spray painted targets on it. After a few thousand shots, I just slip a new one over it and repaint. It stops a 70lb Mathew's DXT.

I buy the cheap bag at Academy Sports ($27.00). I do not use it for broad heads. Will last me for close to a year with recurves and long bows. I normally keep one in reserve, [campfire] and try to purchase when on sale or with coupon.

Third Hand Archery....my boys and I have shot the lights out of one and I have not seen it go down hill at all. Had it about 4 mnths. Has been my favorite one.

Been using burlap sacks stuffed with old clothes for a few years. Bag wears out, transfer stuffing to a new bag. A bag usually last me most of a year, several thousand arrows, left in the weather year round (slightly sheltered). Think the last bags I got from amazon for around $5 a bag.

Filled one with plastic bags recently, it's been holding up well and stops a field point easily.

Compressed hay bale for broadhead practice.

Mattress plastic covering from matress outlets has been plentiful, accessible, free and works extremely well.

A local farmer gives me feed sacks, I stuff old clothes in them and good to go. When a hole wears in it I slip it inside another bag. I am up to four bags thick this season.
