i have heard of a guy that used pool lining or pool tarp, one of the two, to actually make blow up bunkers. i would use, crates, wood, garbage cans, or anything cheap you can find at wal-mart.

i use pvc piping and make my own doritos and all sorts of other speedball bunkers, then i sew pvc tarp (like slip and slide stuff) and fit it to the shape, it works great

playwood makes good bunkers
i just find stuff in the dumpsters at construction sites, and put the stuff i find in bunker form. Or you could dig holes, and make trenches.

well i use ply wood for a few bunkers and cut angels on them so i can get use to using doritos on sup air you know for holding in your hoppers.... I also use barrels so it gives you the effect of actually playing something like a sup air bunker. heres a pic of myfield i'll only post one cause i made a thread on mine already

get a cheap ladder and put things around it make a stand up bunker. Me and my friends put a ton thorn branches out of it all the way up and its like 3 feet wide and 7 feet tall... its a nice bunker.

In my pasture I waint until a storm comes (happens often) then pick up all the 3" or larger diameter limbs and stack them ontop of each other braced by another tree works great. But using an axe to cut think green wood down to size isnt very fun. Works and looks great.

my favorite bunker types are "snake" bunkers- several sheets of plywood although one can use anything lined up in an elongated M shape it offers protection from several sides and can be useful when moving up the field- just thought id share
