    Last year I saw an ad for Lead Shot Recovery in a magazine stating they had new equipment that could work in a wooded area. Now I can't find the ad. Does anyone know where I can get this information on who to contact?

    Thank you.

    They use skid steers. Usually leaving the trees but removing the brush in the shot area. Depending how deep the shot has migrated they can use a brush. They hope to stay up in the leave litter to stay away from rocks and small stones.

    We have reclaimed a number of ranges that the shot fall area is in trees. Give me a call I would be happy to talk to you about it.

    thanks

    This company did our range this year. We are not wooded but the club they finished before us was. In the spring they are contracted to do another local club whose fall area is all pine trees. There are pics on their site of work being done on a bank around trees.

    We are very pleased with there work. They were quick, and the communication was excellent.
