Or, well, a berm.

A parcel of land that's caught my eye has a negative that may be a positive.

It's a little over 30 acres in a National Forest and it has a utility easement running down the length of it, right in the middle. Bummer.

But, hey, that's a cleared shooting range, right? The only hang up there would be that I'd need a backstop, and building a 12' high or so dirt berm in the easement is likely going to be a problem in the long term.

So I'm now trying to think of how one might construct a moveable berm. Ideas?

Bullet box on a trailer was the first thing I thought of.

Just make sure it is not considered a "road".

People out here in not so free state have got shit for shooting down "roads" on there own property.

I suppose I could put up a "NOT A ROAD" sign.

This would be what I would do.

Why someone would use the "cannot shoot within xx feet of a road" when talking about a "road" on private property. If it is on private property, it can look like a road, smell like a road, be driven down like a road, but if it is not a right of way............it's not a fucking road. It is a path or a drive way. Neither is a ROAD.
