    I have been saving gracery bags to try stuffing with those. I seen a target at the local archey shop that appeared to be stuff with plastic and they were using to test shoot bows at roughly 5 yards with no issues at all!

    More good things you can stuff targets with is lumber covers, plastic from a furniture store, plastic from a carpet store. These are easy to get and do very well.
