    hay guys,
    Im not sure how many of you know of the shooting spot off of hwy 6 headed towards timber but i was there on Sunday with a few friends. when we arrived we found that who ever was there b4 us had completely trashed the place! :mad: i mean 3 garbage bags full of shotgun shell casings and 9 other bags of trash! :wow: On top of that someone had also dumped a few bags of soil and other rubbish in a roadside ditch(which you have to climb over to get to the shooting range). My friends and I picked up the entire range from top to bottom. When we were done we hauled all the trash to the ditch. as we were packing up 4 the day one of the state troopers stopped by and asked us what we were up 2(nice guy). when he found out that there was a bunch of trash he frowned and said thanx for helping pick it up. We drove up in a Honda accord so we couldn’t get all the trash out of there. If someone could help out our community and take a pickup for the last of the trash i would even be willing to go with you and do most of the physical labor. I live in an apt complex so we already have a spot for the trash. If I had a car I would do this myself, I just don’t want my favorite shooting spot shut down:( if you can help out please let me know.
    Sincerely,
    Jr. member
    Adam

    Kudos to you both. I have not been out to that spot (yet) but I think it's great that you took the initiative to clean up the place. Hopefully that trooper remembers that the next time there is a problem with disrespectful and mesy shooters; that not all who like play with guns are like that.

    Way to Go guys! I am glad there was a State Trooper to notice you cleaning up. He will end up going to bat for you and the good shooter if and when they try to close that area to target shooting.

    I am always looking for new closer places to shoot, where is this place? I will remember to bring extra garbage bags for next time someone else ***** it up.

    Adam,

    I would like directions also. I always clean up after shooting, but only get out a couple of times a year.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    I would also like directions. I recently moved here and don't know anywhere to shoot.

    And yes, I leave places cleaner than when I got there.
