Backyard Woodsball

so its a saturday afternoon and me and my buds usually go paintballing in my back yard. we have a field, followed by some woods, a river, more woods, and a nother field. overall we are looking at about a 500 (prolly bigger since it is longer than wide) square yard playing field, (i know, its a big back yard, but its the truth, lol) its what we usually play on. i was just wondering what kind of places you guys usually play at on your own or what kind of games you would play in this type of area with fields, woods, and a river. (i can post some pics if you would like, or maybe you would post pics of where you play woodsball.

I have a couple acres in my backyard that I ball in. Also we just found a boat load of government land that we're going to start playing on during the weekends. Those places are pretty much closed once Friday is over so no one will bother us.

Forest service land is everywhere around here, so we usually just go out anywhere away from houses.

We play in my cousins backyard. It has a really good setup. two halves of woods seperated by a river and its quite hilly and filled with brush which will usually cover you from oncoming paint

I play at Valley Paintball in Sabin MN. It's currently 26 acres of wooded area with a part in the middle that has been converted to a kind of ghetto speedball course. They have access to another 16 acres of land, but they need to build some bridges to cross the river that separates the two sections.

We play in my grandparents woods. There is a big hill which makes for a pretty good D day scenario (think beach landings)

ok, yea Im in Florida where it is city everywhere, so me and 3 other friends cleared out about 200 feet of area and set up bunkers on county ground, like Sykoticskillz13 said this is illegal, and at one point I had another field set up and some 50+ people knew about it and helped build it and played there on weekends, weekdays, and all points of the week until somebody stole a few pieces of board and put it up the police told us we had to take it down, im not upset the police told us to take it down though, I was upset the guy stole the board anyway now we have a smaller field which like last time seems more like speedball than woodsball, but still in the forest but thats where me and my locals play weekdays weekends are dedicated to speedball for my team on actual speedball fields. and Bbroctondanimal, that place looks pretty cool.

I shoot off my porch at milk cartons quite a bit.. otherwise there is a group that plays most weekends on some state land with about 1500 acres... We just have to leave if the 4 wheelers show up to ride in the quarry we play in.

my back yard is kinda small but we had a moveable speedball field awhile back. made out of plywood/scrap boards and stuff, ladders, a trash can, large buckets (the kind that 4000 paintballs come in) and we had an enormous cardboard box that had been cut and unfolded so it would sit up in the shape of a pentagon. but after a few days it fell apart lol. my yard is like 50'x50', if even that, and its shaped like a trapezoid so you dont even get the whole area. it was a small field but fun, and of course everyone had their velocity down to 220-240.

but that all ended when we were in the "safe" area and my friend whose gun was on three round burst and he thought was on safety shot me twice in the face and missed both of my eyes by centimeters... that was a very scary experience. but now we only play at established fields with refs to yell at you to put your barrel sock on

We play in small plots around my house. 3v3 speedball sized fields. Then out a ways is a probably 3-4 acre area we play. It's pretty cool.

Though now, we want to play in this abandoned house.. and this abandoned factory. it would be very cool.

I guess that is what most people play when not at commercial fields, 3v3 format.

My friends house is where we usually play, and if I get some pics it is like a pro course that we made. It's prolly 100X300ft and it has bunkers, trash cans, mini walls, and there are like one foot to 2 ft wide trees spread all around the course all clear of branches perfect for cover, and the floor of it is those soft long pine needles. Spring or winter we play every weekend. It's a sweet course for all ten of us.
