I've been to both... and the spot out by Dewatto is closer for me. Plus it's more "professional" in that you can spend some time sighting in the rifle out to a couple of hundred yards without worrying about 20 other people just spraying rounds!! (That's what the gravel pit out in Capital Forest is for).
But I'd be interested in hearing about any other spots as well.
I wish I'd had my GPS then so I could find the exact spot. Looking at Google Earth I'd have to say it what somewhere off of NE Belfair Tahuya Rd. just north of NE Dewatto Road (possibly 47°26'7.66"N - 123° 0'31.67"W).Where do you go in Dewatto? I have never been there, but I hear that it's cool. The Capitol Forest pit is SCARY! Ive been out there a few times....Last time about 5 guys were firing, and 1 of them puts down his gun and starts walking out to set up targets, while everybody was still shooting!!!! I dont go there anymore.....I just go up in the hills there. Also used to go to Wilkeson area, but that is now all private land. Know of any other good safe spots? Thanks!
Yeah, I got the same results when I pasted the coords into that converter site. It looks like it's misreading the coordinates.I must be doing something wrong because 47°26'7.66"N - 123° 0'31.67"W is converting to a spot in the pacific ocean off the Baja coast about 400 miles.
That does sound like a safe place to shoot, though.
Any driving directions you could provide would be really helpful. (If coming from the south, would you guys keep heading north after tahuya road turns into Dewatto? Like onto a logging road?
That worked perfectly, thank you a ton. Hopefully somebody won't build a truck depot on top of it, like they did my last Belfair spot just south of the Kitsap airport.
