- Mar 27, 2008Not a net but.....
I created my backstop using three 4x4's 8'long. Used two and made
pells with 6 inches out of the top for 7' total height and cemented
tire bases. Took the third and used it as a cross piece between the
two pells with 8" spikes that allow it to be placed and removed.
Attached hooks to the top and hang carpet, etc. whatever is on hand
to make my backstop. Works out to roughly 7'x8' but I only shoot 45#
so loose hanging carpet works great to take the force out of the
arrows and I only shoot 20 yards right now.
So I have 2 pells for heavy practice and a quick assemble backstop
for arrows, knives and axes. Quick takedown allows for easy storage
and protection from the weather. Not to mention it only cost around
$50 to make.
