I currently live on the west side of the mountains in Washington, but frequent the east side for sun, camping and sometimes shooting. Increasingly I dream of owning, renting or sharing some land out east for recreation. I don't intend to live on the property, but would love to shoot, hunt (and allow others to as well), camp etc on it. Possibly someday build a tiny little cabin with some solar panels on it at best, but not a primary concern at this point. I have a few questions I'm hoping you guys with land already (or experience shooting on open land) can help with. Currently I'm looking at somewhere around 40-80 acres of land. 40 is what I guestimated would be the smallest square plot of land I could get away with for shooting in most areas, as I figure if it's a square plot, that'd give me 1/4 mile on each side. That's not a lot of range, maybe 400 yards, 200-300 realistically, but it opens up some fun anyway. Would others agree with that acreage or is that too small / going to put me too close to others? Clearly I'd try for some natural boundaries like butting up against a mountain and such to help facilitate that. Additionally, do people do any land rentals / leasing / property share deals for like minded people? I wouldn't even know how to start that search other than word of mouth. I've tried for about a year now to find someone with a nice plot of land out east but so far have only gotten a few invites for people with 1-10 acres that just don't work well for this type of recreation. If I have to buy, I'm looking to spend less than $150k if possible, and there seems to be some options out there around 40-55 acres for land that looks a bit useless for anything other than what I'm talking about. What have others done? Thanks for any info!
