    Directions to a place to go shooting in SW Washington was posted in another thread. I haven't gone there yet, but I'm wondering if anybody on the forum has done any shooting there. If so, how far past the houses have you gone? Have the people that live in the area complained about anything? The noise? Irresponsible shooters leaving their garbage behind? Anything?

    Directions are below:

    I have a spot up in Washougal I go to. Never really crowded, but yesterday there was 3 people kinda in the same area shooting an ar. When we rolled up I just asked if they minded if we shot in the spot we were at. Didnt mind at all. Only got hairy when the guy walked over with the ar on his back. He was just asking about my Ruger mkiii 22/45 though, no biggy. I had just loaded a clip and put one in the chamber as he started walking over. I just kept it in until he said 'hey is that a Ruger?'. Like I said, no biggy. They looked like decent enough people.

    Let me know if you ever want to go up in the hills of Washougal. No 4wd needed, but a pickup or higher ride car is needed.

    I had one guy, guessing he was a ranger, up on Larch in the pit area. I never heard of the Discover Pass at the time and he let me know some info on it but it was just the one time some one was checking.

    Last year on Labor Day the County Sheriffs were blocking the road at Dougan Falls Bridge and would not let you past that point unless you had a Discover Pass. They turned a lot of people away and if you wanted to get a pass you had to drive back to town to get one.

    Just get the pass, soon enough you will need it to leave the driveway.

    If everyone was to bend over and accept it that easily, The next step would be for them to say " Now you can come to the woods but No Shooting Allowed" and the sheeple would say "OK, How else do you want screw us"?
