The other field is on a construction site that never got going and never will because our neighborhood bought the land so that we can use it. The best thing about it is that they only got to cut the trees down and never moved them, so we have made a million bunkers. And its right next to a creek about 10ft wide so we made 3-4 bridges. I know it sounds unbelieveable but its compelety true!
they bought it just so u could use it wow not to belivable but if its true thats really cool

Not just so that we could use it. It was going to be turned into a dump site and they needed an excuse so we told them that we could be there excuse. Well it worked. A park might go back there sometime but till it does its ours.

My .02 Cents -
I personally love the 100 acre farm we have to play on (winnie the pooh jokes are expected), and dont want to make it look like a garbage bin. I clear brush, cut down old trees, stack wood together and nail it, use older pallets, and hay bales, all natural things to keep the effect of rec ball.
Maybe im a purist, but it seems to me like putting old cars and T.V.s and hood lids ruins the natural enviroment a recballer strives to play in.
Here are a few things ive done to keep bunkers real looking.

Dug pallets about 1/4th into the ground, and stacked brush on them to hide them from view.

Build hay bails around trees, then bent (Not broke) branches in front of the hay bails to hide them partially from view.

Old trees with a curved trunk, lay them down and secure them with the hump going into the air, then shave it down, taking all the old limbs off of it, take the leimbs and stack them tightly against the tree, burying one end in the ground and nailing the other to the main section.

Go to a hunting store and get a magazine and take a look at some magazines there as well, those are FILLED with great ideas.

Ill get pictures soon -

Custom Bunkers? Clarify the question,

personally i say its more of a sport if your playing in woods and you just use natural bunkers like trees and stuff...but also (and i dont know why no one's said this before i think its a great bunker) CARPET can be stapled or nailed to trees. i dont know about you but in my neighborhood someones always throwing out carpet. so anyways you can put it between two trees...or three works good too...or you can make it between two trees like 10 feet above the ground if you have a latter that goes up a tree or a little platform. its real versatil an free!

the field we play on is made up of LARGE plastic tubing, pallets, rail road ties and large spools. its surrounded with netting to allow people to stand and watch. there is also a woodsball section on the other side of the road and it only costs us 5 bucks a day to play.

you can most of these from salvage yards, department, hardware and grocery store back alleys. Bulk fuel depots. You can get empty spools from electrical company lots. Shopping carts can often be found behind grocery and departments stores,(they usually just pile up the broken ones, or put them in a dumpster.)

You can get nearly all of it for free if you know how to ask. Or just get yourself a five finger discount after dark.
