Well I have some friends who sometimes play in a junkyard lol. Premade bunkers everywhere!!! If your location wasnt a mile and 1/2 walk i would recommend loading some scrap metal up as a more sturdier base. Simply find some old sheet metal to substitute for the 2x4, bend them outwards bout 3 inches from the top (precautionary reasons) and you could have yourself a sturdy base bunker.

Also foxholes are great, usually unless you are looking for them you'll fall right into them or go right by them.

Those of you who don't see me.. are those of you who should fear me.

Why dont try using the trees to make yer bunkers, Im sure theres plenty of branches or a dead tree layin around or if you could ask permission from the property owner/management if its possible to chop down some trees to make the bunkers and you may never the property mgmt/owner probably has plans of taking some down trees...

old tires from junk yards work ok and you can build a frame out of branches or 2x4's and cover it with mesh (heavy 3/8 inch mesh that i used for a rabbit cage once but i dont know where it came from) then cover all that with a tarp or a thick blanket so you cant see through it

i seriously dont know why they dont just make them out of cinder blocks, i can get a cinder black for about a buck at my hardware store (a friend of mine works as a casheir their so i can get an uber poodle amount of a discount...10% WOOT!) it will cost a little bit more BUT it will last WAAYY longer than some wood bunker or any other kind of bunker. we and a bunch of friends are making a castle in this field a friend owns, its a HUGE field out in the country and we are making 2 castles, its gonna be uber cool...at least, it better be. hopefully we can get a license for paintball or w/e you need to do and open it as a field...i would invite you all and give you free admission lol
how can you die when you cant be seen?

You know, there might be some old 50 gallon drums in a junkyard somewhere. I wouldn't doubt a local junkyard in your area... you might as well check...

Try spools. Those wire spools. You can probibly get them free from your local power company, cable, or phone company. Or if you can find a huge electrical company, they might have some empty spools laying around. Although, you will have to transport them. (to get them into the woods, you can just roll them) Most spools range in size from 4 to 12 inch plastic (useless for paintball), or from 12 inch to 6 foot wood spools. Some are even larger. But those extra huge ones will be hell to transport (the huge wood ones are as heavy as... <insert bad words here>).

You can use some logs that are laying around (or you could always "borrow" a few limbs off of a tree). Just arange them in a bunker. You can use large bolts, construction screws, or rail road **edited**es to hold them in place (although all of those do get pretty expensive).

Plywood and some 2 x 4s works wonders, but it gets expensive, and uber heavy.

If I were you, I'd go look around local construction sites (but don't piss the workers off, trust me, they hate that). Be real polite, and ask the guys if they have any scrap material you can take (especially wood). Most of the time, they won't care, beacuse they would have to get rid of the scrap anyway, you're basically doing some of that disposal for them. But seriously, ask permission, and be really polite...

Most importantly - People suck.

  I've considered just about everything, trying to find a new place isn't impossible, but the field is convenient for all our practices and scrimmage sessions.  The plastic will not be permanently secured, instead it will be hanging from cable and attached to a 2x4 at the bottom.  Aside from that there's not a great deal of choice for the situation.

  We're buying 50 gallon drums as secondary bunkers, but they're too expensive to try and use them as our base bunker.  Pallets are easily obtained but very hard to transport the mile and a half 'nature trail' to the field.  The 3mm plastic seems to be the strongest option for the result.  We will be using pallets to fill in the dig-in bunkers we've made so you're not knee-deep in mud, but otherwise they're usefulness is far exceeded by the work necessary to get them in place.

  Once we've completed a bit more work, I'll post some pictures so I can see what you guys think, all the bunkers (aside from dig-ins) are easily moved, so reconfiguration isn't much of a hassle.  And if anyone has found a site with decent plans for paintball bunkers it would be most appreciated if you could drop me the link.

Thats a really resourcefull idea. My friends and i make bunkers out of cut logs stacked up in a triangle. These work well since they are natural and all, and they can be moved. We also take a few stumps and set up at the base of a hill or ridge that we have covered. Hope this helps.
