    Talking NW Arkansas Pumpkin Shoot

    Guys,

    I had an idea that might be great fun, and I wanted to run this past you...

    The day after Halloween, pumpkins usually go on sale, for really cheap sometimes. Especially oldish pumpkins. So, I had an idea to organize a pumpkin shoot. Ever shot a pumpkin before? Fun!

    We would need some place out in the sticks, on some private land. I have no clue where a good place might be, so I thought I might ask the Arkansas forum. Saturday Nov 3rd or Sun the 4th might be ideal for this; the first weekend after halloween, when pumpkins are readily had, and for cheap.

    What better way to spend a brisk autumn afternoon? It's very much in the spirit of the season!

    What do you guys think?

    This would be so cool to do..probably the biggest concern is the short notice right now in getting the BIG guns together...as for a place to shoot, I think I can score a place out here in Madison Co...and I may know a place or two in Washington Co also..all in all, I like the idea! You gonna allow Trebuchet's?

    Sweet! I knew you'd come through, Dr. Lewall. If it's OK, I'll leave it to you to secure the location. I'll work the pumpkin procurement angle. Is Nov 3rd an OK date to shoot for?

    Trebuchet, HELL YES! I've actually designed something similar, although it's never been tested... :o

    The 3rd NOV would probably be a good date for everyone but me..I'll be in ES that weekend..but as I said, I think I can score a site that would be real easy to get too right on hwy 74 here in Madison Co...BIG pasture and abt a 1/4 mile to 1/2 to the creek (abt 80 + acres) and its FLAT!..will make a phone call here in just a few to see if "Jay" will allow us to picth punkins!

    Hmm, for a really flat area, maybe devising a bullet trap would be necessary? I was thinking that ideally it would be best to put the pumpkin targets in front of a hill, so the hill catches the bullets.

    Hrm, maybe 10 november would still be OK for a pumpkin shoot. Without Doc L, I think this whole thing might fall apart. Wanted to meet you anyway Doc.

    Anyone else here in NWA have access to a place where we can shoot and kill pumkins? THis will not be a "shoot a pumkin from a cannon" sorta deal..pumkins will be the targets..we need a place that has a LARGE berm to catch bullets, prefer a berm that is clean and free of rocks (ricochet hazard) and abt 15ft tall..so if you know a place, let us know here..time is short.
