    Thanks for the directions. I built one 4 x 4 and it works great. It is heavy and will last a long time. I used vinyl coated chicken wire. Great for anyone who likes to shoot alot. I had less than 25 dollars in mine.

    Thanks for your help Ricky! This is what I got so far:

    I put wheels on mine so that I can tip it and roll it into the shop when it’s not being used. I used some lawn mower wheels with 1/2″ bolts going through them. Caster wheels are VERY expensive so these are $3 each.I wouldn’t tow it down the highway but it should be good enough to move 20 yards out of the shop by hand. It is 5″ from ground to top with the target portion being 36″ wide x 48″ tall.

    I cut a 6″x12″ hole into the top for filling and packing it. I have a board that will be screwed on top of this to cover it and I will be adding some handles on top too.

    Here are a couple of views of the entire target so far. I used to use a small bag target in front of that old couch you see in the background. The couch has caught 2 arrows (none were mine!). The neighbors will all rejoice when the couch is gone I bet! Haha!

    Now I just need a semi load of old t-shirts and jeans! I am planning on covering the front and back with tarp material. I plan on putting different sized spots on the front and maybe drawing a deer on the back. For the deer side I sould lay the target down on its side. This is why the wheels go to the inside so that when you tip the target all of the weight of the target does get put on just one wheel. I will post when it’s all finished!

    Has been awhile since I have contributed so I thought I would share my latest Archery target.  Built this backer out of 3/4″ stall mat 4’x6’x3/4″ thick.  Has no issue stopping an arrow but is a bear to pull out.  Self healing mat, but teflon or silicone spray would be needed to aid in slick arrow removal on the occasional miss.  With that target there should be no miss what so ever.

    Built this to place in the shop for indoor shooting.  Also just to build something.
