    I'm down here working in Eugene for a little bit, and found a couple places , if you head down 11th to crow Rd. Take a left and follow it all the way to territorial, crow road T's into territorial take a left go about 500 yards and turn onto Wolf Creek Road and just follow it out a few miles and there's some turn outs its BLM land and the local said it's okay to shoot there so I've been shooting there too. That's not too terribly far from Springfield maybe a half an hour drive if you take beltline to 11th. Hope this helps.

    Just drive up McGowan creek rd right past emerald empire... After a mile or two the road forks, go right and start watching for spots... There are A LOT of good shooting areas up there. Much closer than panther creek...

    Penn road runs between 126 and vaughn rd. Theres some good spots out there and you used to be able to get on the "A" line and drive all over. Penn road does get kind of deliverencey in spots though.lol. If your in Eugene panther,coyote and battle creek are fairly close. If your in Springfield Shotgun,Mcgowan and Camp creek are good spots. If you head up the Mckenzie river Quartz creek is cool and cuts over to aufdehidre or something like that... Lots of good spots in there. Below Cougar reservoir is like a huge gravel pit and Ive seen people shoot there. Just fill up the gas tank, get some forest service maps and explore. Thats how I find them...lol. Good luck and stay safe! Oh and if your at the coast south of florence just north of the smith river and gardner theres sparrow park road. It cuts through the mountains right to the beach. Shooting, 4x4 in the mud or the sand, surf fish and clamming. Its a great place!
