    Time for the annual cleanup on our combined trap-skeet and 5 stand range. Looking for a better way to do it than our traditional hand rake and shovel method, which requires about thirty man-days of work.

    We throw 100,000+ Lawry pitch targets annually. Lots of wads and crunchy target pieces to remove since last year.

    Open to any suggestion that will simplify this labor-intensive task.

    How does your club clean up the range debris?

    Thanks,
    Ed

    We pull a disc behind a truck & turn 'em under. The wads that the wind blows back onto our grass get mowed-up when the lawn's mowed. Phil E

    We leave them on the ground and they just sort of go away.

    Our club hasn't cleaned up the targets yet but we pick up the wads with the power assisted bagger attachment on the riding mower.

    We don't. They just fall into the small lake we shoot over.

    I don't see the point of cleaning them up. Every few years we have a box fire that may get out of hand and burn a bunch up. Personally, I hardly ever leave any pieces big enough to be a bother, nothing but smoke lol.

    Really though, we never clean them up. Mow right over them.

    Surprised to read that some don't clean up at all. Any other methods used to remove shooting debris?
