We live on a small farm with a bit of woods on the north boundary. It was my Dad's and before my Grandparents place. Sometime some years ago my brother decided to clean out his place of bottles and cans. He spent some time hauling this junk into a hole in the woods. A lot of time. Many cubic yards of time. I have been looking at this mess for six years. Today I mentioned to Betty that I just might bust all these bottles up and cover them with dirt. That is just what I did this afternoon. I took the 327 single seven up there blasted the bejeebers out of them. I haven't shot glass bottles since I was fourteen. What a riot. Way more fun than with a .22 for sure. I had some 135 grain bullets and glass was in the air like snow. I was laughing like lunatic.
Bottles... lots of bottles

Should have covered it up,after a few more years collectors would have enjoyed the find.
Unless your brother was 120 years old and all the bottles were from when he was born I don't think you lost anything.
If you had a good time that is all that matters. We used to have a trash dump on the ranch and I was allowed to shoot rats and glass bottles down in the pit but that was the only time. If my father found one piece of broken glass outside the pit for the cattle to step on, I got his belt for sure and certain.
A sunny day, and a couple of bricks of ammo,
I can't think of a better way to spend a day.
"Where the air smelled like snakes
we'd shoot with our pistols,
but empty pop bottles was all we would kill."
