DIY Archery Target?

I was wondering if I could use an old mattress as a target for archery. The mattress contains springs in it, would this be a problem? If so, can anyone suggest any ideas for a simple target please.

    A bale of hay or straw and then get a large sheet of rubber to cover it so it will last a long time.

    Bales of hay/straw are probably the most common homemade archery targets of all time.

    I'd be concerned about the metal springs damaging the shafts. A hay bale makes a good target backer.

    that wont work .. go to the local feed store and get you several bales of hay ... keep them covered up if you want them to last ..
