Wow, sounds like an interesting set-up you have there. As far as a backstop, I would recommend a large pile of hay bales to surround your target. There is this stuff you can buy to fill up the hole in your target as well. Sounds like you may need to find a new shooting spot though if you are going into someone elses yard. You are lucky there was no one over there.

Yeah, i would definately reccomend finding a safe place to shoot. What if your neighbor had been walking out to their car or something, that is crazy. Start at 10 yards, its almost impossible to miss a desecent sized target there, aand work your way back.

I was kind of hoping this post was a joke...

That's some funny stuff! You really should be more careful where you put your target though.

My bow shop owner rotates his spot target "blocks" about every six months. They're AT LEAST a 4x4....and they're not in bad shape. He sells the used ones for $65.

If I didn't have a SAFE place to shoot at my house....I'd shoot elsewhere.

Your area is NOT safe (as described)....even if you HAD that large a backstop. "I" think you need to address where you're shooting.

Sounds like your neighbor's cat is already doing a fine job of stopping your arrows? Not sure what the problem is?

LMAO

Maybe get yourself a few big chunks of miner's belt, and built a large wooden frame, hanging the belt inside the housing. Miner's belt will stop your arrows without a problem. Getting them out... that's another story.

What a cat you hit a cat and no one got mad lol. I dont like cats but I wont shoot someones pet, that is too funny if you did.

In hunters class they say that you have to be aware of the target and whats behind or did you skip that class?

I saw this earlier and didn't want to reply until some else did. I thought you'd take much more of a beating than you are getting. Hey, usehay bales/ banded up bale of cardboard or even a 4X8 sheet of 3/4 plywood but please get something and soon.
