    Looking for a spot to shoot long range +400-1000.

    Hoping someone knows of a spot where I can setup some steel and shoot.

    I’m a tri-county member, but shooting steel is better than punching paper sometimes. ;)

    May be able to offer a finders fee if someone points me to a good spot.

    Thanks.

    Good luck buddy. I've been looking myself and no one will willingly give up their spot. Best thing to do is go out driving or google map. I found a few on google map from ridge to ridge but have not drove out there yet and really nothing flat on this side of the mountains. If you're willing to drive 2 hours maybe the eastern side is a better option?

    I found a few spots on google maps, just need to get a day to waste searching.

    I may have an area, but you would have to promise to take me with you.

    It is 50 minutes from Vancouver in WA.

    There is steel at 300 at tcgc. You could also approach the 600yard chair and ask if you can shoot steel on match nights.

    That place is a little too stuffy for me to be honest. :(

    I might be interested in sharing resources here. I don't have a lot of time to just scout for a place so hoping likely spots found on Google Maps will pan out as useful is not too likely for me.

    I live NE of Battle Ground, but have recently joined DRRC to have a safe and sane place to get some range and feel comfortable taking my kids. The Larch gravel pit is only 87 yards on the longest diagonal and you need to be there by yourself to use that distance. Not to mention the junk and crazies that show up there. So I drive the hour plus to DRRC now.

    I, too am interested in longer ranges ... out to 600 would be ideal but even an hour drive to a spot with 300 yards has my attention and I'd be willing to provide transportation to someone from time to time to use that. I don't get out often though because of family / work obligations so I might not be viewed as an ideal candidate to share a prime location if someone is banking on getting a ride there with any amount of frequency.

    So the spot I am thinking might work is probably pretty close to you. I am not worried about transportation, sometimes I like having 2 vehicles in remote places .It is more about having a spotter, someone to help set up targets, and someone to watch your back.

    All that said, have you looked at the Kelso/castle rock range? It goes out to 300 and is fairly close .

    If you want to go try longer range stuff in the woods let me know. I have seen possible areas at the spot in passing, but need to scout it out.

    ive Got a buddy scouting 1 area we found, when I get a break I’m going to scout a spot I found near camp 18.

    I’m definitely good with sharing resources, hopefully I can get my tow hooks installed this weekend on my new truck. Then I just need a free day to head out and scout.

    Another member reached out about a spot he knows of, but it’s up to him to share that.

    TCGC does have 300, and I shoot there, but it’s gotten boring. My RPR is begging to stretch it’s legs;)

    I’ve got a crew cab, so I’d be able to take a person and gear (I’ll likely have another guy or 2 with me) if needed.
