    Ali,
    looks like you need an arrow pulling aid. You could buy one, or do what I do: find an old bicycle inner tube and cut a strip out of it, wrap it tight around the shaft you want to pull as close to the surface of the target as possible. It will give you enough grip to pull the shaft without bending it or stripping off the fletches.

    Or make a target back stop. A burlap bag stuffed tight with old plastic bags and other light plastic scrap will stop most arrows and allow two finger removal. Cheap and effective.
