I'll need to discuss this with the powers that be at the range.
Just googled high speed winch and this would be pretty easy to replicate. Who knew that they already had "wakeboard winches" ????
Here is an example of one for under $1000 and I would bet you could do something for $500.
some of the guys from RSA have an annual Big Bore shoot w/ a .375 H&H minimum caliber to cull warthogs on a particular property. A friendly competition plus controlling the population.
Great machine, just gave me another very portable idea... a sled pulled by an atv! just be sure to stay out of the way as it gets to you or it really will simulate a charge lol.
The motor that runs it seems to be a standard car/truck wiper motor, then a larger gear to get some speed and the size of the drum to get it up to the speed they needed. With a bit of skill and some work you could get it done pretty cheap. If memory serves me right retail was below 1000$ for the system, that was a year or so ago. Would have liked a foot stop/start button as range sessions alone is not uncommon for me! Could always use the stationary bicycle target puller, just may have to take lots of water for the wife
