Back Yard Shooting
Anyone here do any shooting (practice) in their back yard? I do some shooting, but I'm not really set up ........yet. I have a wooded back yard (pretty dense) where I set up a stockade fence up against a large pine with a bunch of pallets leaning on the fence and then put some targets up; paper plates; cans; etc. What I would like to do is clear an area (which I already have marked somewhat to get an idea) this spring/summer (once the bugs are gone..yeh, right) probably about 100' long (May be less) and 20' wide. Have the local with his loader/bulldozer just push the dirt till I get my 20' high burm (20' is good; 25' is acceptable). Behond that is a small incline, a drop, pond, then an incline on the other side of the pond. Make up some signs, "WARNING ACTIVE SHOOTING RANGE" and post them in the general vicinity on my property. There are no houses in the back so I should be allset. I'm going to see the Chief in town and run it by him anyway for him to give me the "thumbs up". Of course safety is number one and I want to make sure no one is out there walking around in the woods. This is why I want the Chief to come by. Sorry, I don't want to do the "club" thing.
(All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)
