I have one of the reinhart multi side targets you just throw it out and you always have a flat surface to aim at from ground or tree stand
These targets will take a pounding over and over and the bolts come out pretty easy
I got mine from J.D shooting in prospect excellent target

Bales of hay sound like the way to go I.M.O.
Cheap, available & can take hundreds of bolts.
plus, you can make it as big as you like & place multiple targets.

The feedbag and wrap is a cheap and effective target. I use them for my recurve and my compound. They stop all target point arrows and pull out with ease. I don't have any experience with crossbows so can only assume it would work as well. I get the shrink wrap from the liquor store....they are happy to save it for me and there is no charge. I pack the feedbags as full as I can force in. Due to the fact that it is cheap/free I have many targets set at different distances, heights and have several others in the barn ready to go if I want to take them some wheres else for a day. I also like that I can spray paint targets on them...all around it and even attach other targets to them...very versatile. Hope this helps.

PS Let us know what ya decide on and how it works.

My Reinhardt has caught thousands of arrows and still going,mostly on one side...haven't had a pass through yet.
About to start pounding it again getting ready for Maine Turkeys...I'll be buying another when the time comes.

I use the feed bag stuffed with plastic with my vision but make sure it's stuffed very tight or you will loose fletchings and arrows quickly. Go for something better if u can like the rhineheart,at least you can move it easily and with the price of arrows you won't be long getting your money back.
