    My favorite forestry company owned land is no longer available (see pic) IMG_20170715_084323892.jpg . That was an hour drive from my house to the site in Mason county. The prosecutors office vendetta to get Marcus Carter and the Kitsap rifle and revolver club has to date restricted shooting to a 5 acre parcel minimum in the county. I'm not looking for an area to train a 100 man militia and due to old age taking it's toll on my body I'm no longer as able to hike far either.
    SOOOO, anyone know of State owned or any land that is not overrun with ATV's, joggers, hikers and such within an hours drive or so that I can go send some rounds downrange and won't invite a visit from the local gendarmes?

    Where is that at? We go to a place in Mason county around NF2340 and the steel bridge.

    That is about a mile South of Steel Bridge, before the fork to Brown Creek.

    Right but is that the area where you go? If not it is still around an hour from Port Orchard.

    That is the area that I USED to go to, not wanting to risk my 2nd Amendment rights with some BS arrest, I am looking for somewhere else. I made the 100 mile round trip many times over the years, but apparently the timber company wants to keep everyone out (see pic).

    I'd love to find a good spot. Crazy how hard it is to find some place with a good backstop where I don't have to compete with off roaders. I've had less than stellar luck at Tahuya.

    At Tahuya? I'd love to hear where if you're willing to share. I've had a similar experience as 440volt, combined with not great experiences at Tahuya. I'm looking into pay to use timber land, but I haven't found too much for decent land to shoot on. I've been driving to the Tacoma Sportsman's Club where at least I can shoot without getting hassled.

    The only Brown's Creek I'm familiar with is by Hoodsport. I have a spot closer to Quilcene but it can get pretty crowded on the weekends.
