Just wondering where I can get cardboard for backing for targets. Like to build a target bout 4x4 ft. for 60 or so yard range practice. Also it will hold those big paper deer targets.

See that dumpster behind the grocery store?

Help yourself.

And sometimes they even have one labeled "cardboard only".

There's ya goldmine, right there. :-)

A little more expense, but possibly more permanent. I've had this outside for about 4 years, I can build them for about 60 dollars (Foam insulation, threaded rod / hardware, and a couple of 2 x10s).

This is my 100 yard walk-up target.

Jeff, I think you misunderstood when you sent in for a "cow" tag:)

Bailed Styrofoam coffee cups make good backstops.

They have those giant foam blocks that they use at some of the road race tracks. I’d like to grab some of those from their dumpsters after a race. They also use huge foam blocks in construction to stabilize earn fill. I’ve seen some that looked like 4’x4’x8’

Most WalMarts and some grocery stores compress and bail their cardboard boxes. They are roughly 5' x 4' generally. They sell them to a company that comes around and picks them up. You might be able to purchase one of the bails, but they weight a lot!
