When I first moved here I had an 8 foot wide 50 yd range and a 4 ft wide 100yd range. We logged the following year and I lost most of my backstop, leaving me with just a small backstop. Well, I started reconstruction.
I lost some yardage because the old 100yd backstop is now in the middle of a swamp. The new range is 200ft/66yds from my normal shooting spot in my airconditioned closet.
I still have the ability to set up a separate shooting station at 100yds outside. Along with a nice station at 25yds.
The base of the berm is 4ft wide oak logs, piled with old logging debris. I needed a base to keep the dirt from sinking right away into the mud pit behind it. As my effort last spring did. As you can see I had to sacrifice a few logging decks just to keep my tractor from becoming a submarine.
As it sits now, it is about 8 ft high. I am going to tamp down the top and add a few more bucket loads of fill dirt to it.
How are you going to get the deer to stand in front of the berm and shouldn't the tree stand be farther away?

Nice kubota, that will help the project move along
Guns-I have some
I am in the process of building a range as well.
First part will be a pistol range that will go out 25 yards.
At some point I will build a dedicated 200 yard lane for rifles, but pistol range is first.
