I did alot of research into this myself cause i did not like the cost of a target lol. Ive seen multiple ways including taking LOTS of phone books with pages towards you and clamping it down with a board on top and board on bottom with a ratchet strap. Another ive seen it those foam tiles that kids play mat like 10 inches thick. Ive also heard of cardboard boards cut into squares and laid with the cut area towards you giving u a sandwich look and then press that against a wall and ductape VERY tightly. Another ive seen is bag targets. Take a regular tarp or heavy sack material that can last and make it into a bag by sewing or what ever shut. Take alot of plastic shopping bags. hay or that ceran wrap they use on shipping pallets and pack in VERY tight. Another 1 is take balls of hay and take burlap cloth and drape it over it and paint a target on the burlap. My suggestion is just hit a local archery/sporting good shops and buy a dense foam target. They work great and stop arrows well and last a long time with the only downside of it being a bit more expensive. I am using a foam block that is usable for regular tips or hunting broadhead and i have no issue with it at all. http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3130370&cp=2367438.2367824.2293465
