    Looking or a public place where I can shoot my rifle from about 100-150 yards. Does anyone know and is willing to share of such a place? :)

    Well, just doing a Google map search of Corvallis, I see that not too far beyond Philomath is the Siuslaw National Forest. Switching to satellite view, I see gobs of logging roads and old yarder platforms that could easily be used for shooting.

    I've heard lots of good things about ARPC. Sometimes I wish I still lived in Corvallis. I miss that town!

    Be careful. Most of the logged areas are on slices of land owned by Starker, Hull Oakes, or Weyerhauser, and they don't permit target shooting on their land.

    Absolutely agree. If you do decide to go into the woods, perhaps you could check with your local ranger station to find out exactly where national forest land begins, or maybe they can even give you some directions.

    A lot of people head out to Mary's Peak Area, though the main forest service road everyone takes is currently closed due to logging. At least it was last Monday.
