Archery Backstop Build

Recommended Posts

Last night’s project

The styrofoam block has been the backstop here forever. I did it’s job but it’s so dense if you missed your arrow was done...not coming out. The new one works much better and looks nicer too :up:

The backstop itself is a 3/4” rubber horse stall mat I picked up from tractor supply for $45.

In the future I want to put a roof over it with lights. The next project is a deer hanging rack that’s going about 20 yards next to it. That will also have a roof with lights. So whenever we get electric going out there the roof is going on.

Nice. Will the rubber mat stop an arrow? Just in case

I shanked a couple arrows at it to test out. They penetrate about 6” then stop. That was at 20yds shooting 60#

If you paint it light olive it will just about disappear in the distance.

black shows up too much for my liking

Get rid of those 2x4 unless you don't care if your arrow shatters

Someone had posted something like " If you miss that target than

archery may not be HIS game" I see that post had disappeared.
