    I am moving into a new house this week and Ill have a long driveway perfect for shooting my bow. I'm looking for a backstop to put in-front of my shed to block any stray arrows that may miss the targets. All recommendations are appreciated!

    I believe lots of guys on here have shared that stall mats(thick rubber) work great

    I went with a budget backstop approach:

    Built about a 4'x3.5' frame out of 2"x10" (scrap scavenged from a construction project). Chicken wire on the back and front. About once every year or two, I fill with flattened cardboard boxes till buldging (~1').

    Rinehart 18x1 and field ball hang in front.

    Any type of frame to size you want and a few pieces of indoor out door carpet free hanging layered , wire or rope,from the top rail. Movable

    3/4 inch stall mat, but the misses are a ***** to pull out…. So don’t miss.
