My boys and I practice in our backyard all the time.  We live in a suburb of Chicago.  The difference is, behind our target is the side of our garage.  Yes, the wife is not happy from the arrows that have hit it, but I would rather bust an arrow or put a hole in my garage than not have a safe backstop. If the neighbor's dogs or kids are outside, we go inside.  Even with a big backstop, safety comes first.

Glad i'm not hunting with this nut. He should have checked his target area and relocated or made a good backstop.

Wow - that's unbelievable.
There is nothing more beautiful than sitting in a treestand watching the world come alive.
A bad day of hunting is better than any day at work.
