What would you think if a group brought a couple wheelbarrows of shot/busted up pumpkins and dumped em in your yard??

Remember they are biodegradable.

While I see where that can be annoying for some range owners, a range isn't usually set up for aesthetics like a front yard is.

And just as with a front yard, it's best to ask permission. Some people wouldn't mind a bit. Busted watermelon would draw varmints that could dress a dinner table nicely.

Me? I don't like fruit flies. Keep it outta the yard. Take it to the pasture. After shooting a couple coons and possum off the scrap, the horses will take care of the rest.

Though you don't see it in the video, I go to the range with a contractor-sized trash bag, and all the reactive targets I use for videos... plastic water bottle, shaving cream cans, melons, et al, get picked up and taken to the dumpster in that bag.

Usually I spend the first half hour at the range picking up crap that other shooters leave behind.

Range I was thinking of was on state land. The pumpkins you brought and let were probably added to TVs, computers, LP tanks, lumber. water/beverage containers and lots of mty plastic (non degradable in our life times) shotshell cases.

So I guess a few pumpkins wouldnt make any bigger mess than the previous slobs left.

PS: the DNR agrees cause now the 'range' is closed. Entrances blocked with 2-3' boulders. Slobs won.
