San Diego Archers Volunteers make every single bale in each target butt at the Balboa and Morley Field Archery Ranges.
It all starts with bales of the raw material (shredded wood fibers, not straw). Volunteers load the raw material into a special compressor, compress to ~500 psi, band, then stack them until needed. As the bales in target butts break down, especially the center bales, volunteers move new bales to the butt, unstack the bales, remove broken down bales, replace and restack new bales, and finally, move the broken down bales back to bale making area for recycling/disposal.
