    Looking for somewhere to go fairly close to Vancouver. Fiance has a "cute" .22LR and my .308.
    I would also be interested in going with some folks, possibly hunters to give me pointers/tips?
    I have a very flexible schedule right now so let me know what can possibly be arranged.

    Thanks in advance everyone!

    I am going out next week. Either up on Larch or the Gifford Forest. Your welcome to tag along if you can come Wed through Sat. I don't have exact date set yet.

    Well, if you dont mind a 3rd, I am interested as well.
    Are there any decent areas available any more?
    Larch was shut down from what I understand

    I can do Thursday after 11am. Friday after 10am. Saturday after about 8am. For Saturday I was also thinking maybe hitting up the PDX expo gun show? It says on their website if you carpool with 3 or more people you get a discounted parking fee(plus everyone saves since there aren't 3+ cars to pay for). Then maybe after the show go for a shoot?

    I can't go out this week was talking about next. I could possibly do Saturday. this Saturday I plan to be at the gunshow. I will probably go around noon to close. my dad owns doc Holliday so I will look around and end up there.

    Yeah I meant for next week. Then threw in the gun show thing as an afterthought and didn't even think about it until I posted that it might make it look like I was talking about this week for the shooting.
    I'm not sure where any places are that you mentioned so if we could meet up, or some good directions and I'll be good.

    larch attracted all kinds of idiots who have no idea what they are doing. a friend of mine was up there three weeks ago and witnessed some idiots shooting at the power lines. he took some pictures of the morons, their vehicle, license plate, and reported them.

    I haven't heard about that one yet. We were talking about the Portland one for the 8th and 9th.

    Wow good stuff funny thing is if it was a green ranger i prob know em lol but seriously thats f'ed i hate morons ruining all the fun, and messing property up. They think they have a gun and no one can tell them otherwise, just stupid

    OK so serious question now... I know TONS of ppl go there to shoot but is it legel? Especially now that these morons are gettin LEO attention up there. I used to practically live up there and never once seen a forest ranger but havent been up for years now last year camped at GP and didnt go at all this year :bsflag: so now I am curious how thing are going up there now? Is it cool to go shoot up there? Was gonna get a wood permit but the website said not available anymore that non was left to take. Is it gettin chopped to crap by now?
