That's a tough one, really. I've always lived in urban areas, so when I hear gunshots, it's usually bad news. If you are hearing gun shots that make you hit the dirt and you have 6 acres, I would almost say with some degree of certainty someone is shooting on your land. Being a city boy, that would pique my suspicions and I'd have to go out, fence the land, and post PRIVATE PROPERTY and NO SHOOTING signs all over.
6 acres isn't really all that big. My grandparents own a farm in Western Oregon that is 75 acres, and I can usually hear the sound of people hunting ducks down on the river which runs along the length of part of the property.
6 acres is about the same size as six or so football fields.
Basically, just because he's hearing gunshots doesn't mean they are originating from his property.
