I hang them like this:

and let the bags drape down.
I shoot into the hoops, the balls hit the light, free hanging back of the bags and ride down to the bottom.
I spray painted rings and a bullseye inside the bags so they show in the hoops.
Paint rarely breaks in them, when I'm done I just turn them inside out into the garbage can. If they're too gooey I pull the wire, wash them and put the wire back.
They catch reball fine and even the harder rufusdawg targetballs.

I have alot of trees and such to hang them from in my yard.

I would take a picture but they are currently snowed into the shed with the Jarts....

Great idea, I actually have quite a few laundry bags like these from back in the day.
