    Driving out Lousignont today for the first time in many years I noticed every side road for the 1st 2 or so miles had a sign of NO target shooting threatening with prosecution.

    This went on until I came upon the one depicted. First time for me but probably familiar to many members here. It had sign saying it had bben cleared by NWF members. The sign was shot up, there was a fire still smoldering, almost 14.5 lbs brass left on the ground and a bunch of other garbage.

    The pic doesn't do the damage justice, I literally couldn't walk around without stepping on brass. Let alone find my own.

    I totally understand the NO target shooting signs now :-(

    That was April 2nd our clean-up group split up and cleaned that site. Got to wonder what these idiots think will be in the future for these sites?

    All I can say is pick up what ever brass you can as there is a storm coming after this next election and brass will be $$. Of course I bet a LOT of that is not brass but steel case?

    14.5 lbs brass it was that I picked up there. Most of it 5.56, plus some trash & put the fire out. I didn't get many steel cases since they are hard to see when the start to rust.

    Good for you! Funny how 3-4 years ago you were hard pressed to find ANY brass at these sights. Dumbasses have no use for brass now that ammo is readily available? I'll NEVER stop scrounging brass! It's like stumbling on a place in the forest where the ground covered in nickles and dimes!!

    I know this thread is a few months old but I just realized this is where I parked to hunt grouse up in the hills a few weeks ago. This site was completely trashed. Worst shooting site I've ever seen. I would definetly nominated it for a future cleanup day.
