    Only places I know are out hwy 26 and less the 100 yards. I'd like to find a nice big gravel pit to sight in my new rifle. I'd appreciate any suggestions I can get.

    I want to head out tomorrow, but I cant find anything I may have to consider the range in vancover as I cant afford a yearly membership anywhere.

    Browns Camp would be your best bet if it's open right now.. If not I know Tri-County has sight in days coming very soon.

    english pit is where I was thinking about going. I'll have to look into browns camp if its where I think it is it could be good for a spot to shoot then get some fishing in nearby.

    or

    Dougls Ridge Rifle Club between Barton and Estacada is having a series of non-member sight in days starting the 11th. $5 per gun, bore sighter avail. for free as well as targets. Bring own ammo.

    past the lookout on 26 then past the rest stop on the right is a road I forget the name of it. There is a gravel pit on it that is barely 100yards. Theres a few other places I dont remember off the top of my head one is a left somewhere around the lookout on 26. My advice is to pick a logging road and go on an adventure.

    In September Douglas Ridge Rifle Club has a bunch of FREE hunter sight-in days with a bunch of people to help. And it's kid-friendly, too!

    Hunter Sight-In

    Enjoy! I use the Memaloose Rd. spot, but it is very low-tech. At least Douglas Ridge has a much longer range!
