A large blanket will stop most arrows from a light bow or slow them down enough to make finding them easier. There's ballistic netting but that gets pricy. A cheep metal detector comes in handy for retrieving arrows.
Hope that's of some use.

I'd never thought of a blanket. That's brilliant.

That's great! I didn't do what I wanted this year, which is take Archery lessons on the ground :( but maybe once I finish paying off some horse training I'll go get it done.

You look like you're having a blast.

Okay

I'm looking for a bow. My Mom wants my Christmas List and I think I'm going to put one on it. What I'm looking for is a recurve, right? With a 35# draw or there about?

I'm trying to stay around 100.00. This will be more for me learning than anything else, and if I like it I can get a fancy horse one.

Any suggestions? Links?

This looks like a fun set (?) I could offer to pay for half of it if she wants to...

an old carpet or rug works too, I use them as back drops against my 3-D targets with my 70lb compound bow

What is your draw length? Short arms or long arms?

My horse bow is a 40# draw with a draw length of 24. I'll look for the name of the company I bought it from, it wasn't that expensive and it's a nice bow.
