I actually made one, one time. I made it out of 1" thick pink house insulation (that goes under siding). I cut it into 2'x2' peices and then placed them back to back to back,,etc... and then duck taped around the edges of the target. it worked ok, but leaves a film on my arrows. I have about 6 I shoot for only practice. Then I was given a bass pro target from the in-laws this past Christmas and it works well, but good luck getting your arrows out. Hand to lay it on the ground, place a foot on the target, and pull HARD with both hands. Rediculous. Wondering if you get what you pay for when it comes to targets.... those fusions look nice, but there's no way my wife will go for somethign like that....
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
