Archery Backstop

The boy wanted to unleash his inner Katniss again, and I was tired of buying hay every could of months, so instead I spent $23 on some 4x4s and chain, and I made what I hope will be a good hay substitute. I also used some left over floorboard, carpet, shingles and 2x4s.

Hopefully 2 layers of fairly loose carpet can stop a youth arrow, and hopefully the kids can hit a 4×8′ target.

The plan is that they can roll the carpet up using the rope that the target hangs from, and the roof will keep the carpet dry enough.

There was also a screwy, crooked tree in the way, so I had to cut it down.
