    Default Backstop

    I just put up a metal barn. I want to practice Archery in it, not through it. What would be a good material for a backstop for the arrow, in case of a miss.

    I use conveyor belt thats used in coal mines. the companys that supplie the mines will usally give the old ones away. or you could buy some stall mats used in barns. they are 4x6x1 at around 40 bucks. good luck.

    Didn't I answer this on another forum? Hang a piece of old carpet behind the target. Size is up to you.
