      Try using a wodden frame with overlapping strips of conveyor belt hanging
      from it. I know a trick shooter that uses this for a safety barrier during
      his shows. He shoots high powered rifles into layers of this and only
      penetrates up to 3 layers. 1 good layer should stop any shaft or bolt.

      If you have access to hay bales, they make a decent backstop. If you can put them on a wooden pallet (like used in shipping) and run a strap around the bales

        can put them on a wooden pallet (like used in shipping) and run a
        strap around the bales and crank it down with a $5 ratchet from
        Wal-Mart, that compresses the bales and makes them an even better
        backstop. And you can glue the target to a piece of cardboard and
        tie it to the bales.

          That and adding old tires will make a pretty good Backstop , that what Lord
