our team ,TEAM MOOSE, has our own practice field it consists of:
metal barels (drums),the large top fender and hoods off of tractor tralier rigs(made of fiber glass)
plastic palets from a car motor manufacture,
and some home made bunkers (we call them 4-mans for disclosed reasons)made from about ten 2by6's nailed and screwed to two 4by4's and put them in the ground about 2foot. occationally we hold small local tourneys there too and rec days also it is a quick way to get a few extra bucks in your pocket for those got to have upgrades. It has 15 bunkers per side and is 200 feet long by 100feet wide. on the "50" we have two large RiG hoods leaning agaisnt each other in an "A" shape, then about 12 feet down each side of the "50" line are barrel (2base and 1on top with two tires on either side),then on the tape line of the "50" line is an "L" made from barrels and tires(two barrels stacked on each other then one barrel with a trie on it then we cut a barrel in half and put it beside the one barrel and put a tire on it) all in all it is a pretty awsome field. we build one in the same spot and the design was crappy so we took all that up and re did it and got done finnally last weekend i think it is better than any of the fields at the closest local field. we are soon to buy netting and put it up and make it bacically into a BIG thing

hey ARMYBOOT

me and some friends play in tucson and there are too many places to play. Right down the street from our houses there is a wash with a stream(about 5ft wide in some places) so we built a bridge over certain parts(2 bridges altogether) There is also many trees and reeds right on the edge of the stream that are about 10ft tall. All you have to do is sit there and stick your barrel out when they come by. We fortunately have a dump close to the place so we are currently making a tire bunker as well as trenches throughout the entire "field". It's great. You just have to make sure you don't run into the bum camps but they enjoy watching.

hay

Those "spools of hay" are called round bales. and they work great, as do telephone wire spools. the only problem with hay bales, you have to replace after about a year depending on how much precipitation you get.

pallettes work well if you nail them to a tree and stuff a bunch of branches in them, if you leave one of the gaps open it provides a little more cover while still being able too shoot. also, if you try to make the ground yneven with ditches and mouns that provides useful cover if you lay down or crouch. Another thing you can do is put some leftover turf from construction sites and hand it over piles of small fallen trees or pallettes, I've found these to work quite well if they hang over both sides, the both stop the paint and add some density to the bunkers, as well as give a little camoflauge if it is in a wooded or grassy area.
Thats all i got for now. Good luck with your field!

Sheets of plastic board are great! 4' x 8' (1/4" thick) cost about $30/sheet. People try like made to get plastic pallets but this stuff is cheap. If you use season 4"x4" wood with this plastic sheets the bunker will last. I guess covering wooden pallets with this plastic would work great too. Real good for speed ball courses.

I haven't built a field with it yet, but I am planning on it. Just need to buy some land. That's not cheap.

The snake will have to be out of corregated plastic tubing. It expensive, about $5 a foot. I thought about tires but it is a fire hazard in my city if you have a bunch of tires. Does anybody have any cheaper ideas for a snake?

You could stack hay bailes a couple high, availability sort of depends on how densely populated your city is

Apoc... I was thinking the samething after I posted. I live a NW Illinois so their is plenty of hay fields. Good idea for making the snake. In fact, hay bails would make great bunker in general. I guess I could shrink wrap them to "keep" them longer.

yea, hay works great, especially for low bunkers or trenches, only problem is you need to replace them every couple of years because they get pretty nasty

here is the layout of one of our practice feilds. It's a small woodsball feild, and I built it myself.

The bold green lines are trails, and the north and south bunkers are the main bunkers. It is a fun field because there are only a few large bunkers, but because of all the low brush, you can crouch and avoid most fire. anyway, the feild is built on a gently sloping hill, and because of the swampy areas and ferns, it has earned the name "Nam".
As for the bunkers, the east and west bunkers are built of logs and fallen trees with leftover turf from a canstruction site draped over the front.(I've found that the triangular design is very good for two defenders) the north and south bunkers are larger and have the log and turf deal, as well as pallettes and plywood. the north bunker also has a tower with plywood covering two sides.

We like to use hay bales. They're free, and they can be easily moved around. They don't make your land look like a junk yard either.

Can someone look up how to spell "Pallet"?

I think the best fields are made of wooden pallets with slats of wood covering the openings, they're portable, easy to use, and are easy to obtain.

Also, like someone said, 55 gallon drums work great, and the plastic garbage cans are readily available(if you've got cable cutters for cutting the chains).

Old cars are extremely hard to come by, and hard to move. You've got to have a permanent field fixture, otherwise you're up **** creek without a paddle.

Tarps work great! As previously stated, don't pull them too tight or they'll get shredded.

I use postal pallets that I find lying around. Then I use snow fence post to hold them up. They are light easy to move around and just have little holes to plug up.

Our Field

Our paintball field consists of 4 LARGE tractor tires. 2 are designated starting bunkers on the North and South Side. We use Plastic and Metal barrels and stack em 2 high and in clusters of 3. (so its 2 high and 3 together) this provides adequate protection from all angles of the field. The center bunker is 2 LARGE tractor tires stack on top of each other ( a ***** to get up) with a metal stake through all the way to the bottom with a bit sticking out. Around that we have 5 bunkers running east 5 bunkers running west and 2 each going North and South. We have a snake made outta barrels(very awesome) and a diamond opposite it on the other side of the field. we have 4 Spools (telephone) on the field too. We got the land from a neighbor ( ~4 acre plot and we use bout an Acre). and a bonus is right next to our field is a forest with several nature made bunkers. the total cost of the field +$20 ( telephone company PAID us to get rid of the surplus of spools they had, and some barrels) We've had Madd reviews from some of our Amateur teams that play here often and they love it.

Thats my 2 cents

also if you get a truck and just drive around you can usually find big things people are throwing away like dressers and what not. also trash cans work alot better if you cut them in half so they are easier to tuck in to and give you better cover and + you get 2x as many as you would have
