Default Backstop

I am building a range at my cabin for 3D. I got a Rinehart standing grizzly, but the range is facing my garage and I don't want to wreck my arrows, or my garage. I want to build a backstop. Any ideas?

I recently built a range at my place. I used hay bales as a backstop.

If you have the means an old piece of carpet always does a pretty good job. How far you shooting that you can miss that Griz?

Are you shooting broadheads or just fieldtips I use a rag target with fieldtips it will last forever as long as you keep them dry.

Just fiels tips. The Wasp Boss Bullit flys the same way. What's a rag target? I have never heard of one.
