The closest range for firearms is 30 miles away and I can't find an archery range within 50 miles. I live on 5 acres and a good bit of it is downhill with woods on 3 sides. I would like to set up ranges that give me as many shooting angles and body positions as possible. This is because from stories I've been told and the shows I've watched, very few shots are level with you. I know that firearms are completely different from archery and I know that each type of firearm (pistol, shotgun and rifle) is different from the others. As experienced hunters, how would you set up ranges? What targets would you use. What safety features would you build in or use? I am currently stripping and re-blueing my firearms, getting them ready for heavier use, because they have been neglected due to lack of use.
