Default Arrrrrh shiver me !

It,s gonna be 56 degrees tomorrow , time to try out my new cross bow .
What makes the best target . Shooting at 150 lbs and maybe about 300+ feet per second . What say Arrrrrrrgh .? There is some food news in my total ignorance though , I only have seven bolts so I can only lose seven volts , not too expensive .

I think everyone's considering the liability issues, lol. Dango, Google is your friend; look up improvised archery target.

A good tight bale of straw or hay with a paper target mounted on it is a good inexpensive starter.
