    Cool. My knees are in better shape than last year [after replacement surgery]. Was shooting at the pit just above Jackson quarry today with my son and middle grandson. Brought back several buckets of junk. Even though the mining at Jackson quarry finished up on June 30, DNR still has it signed for no recreational shooting.

    Yeah I saw that last weekend. I walked up into that pit to see it's condition and it was pretty clean. I like that pit and have been pushing for moving the blockage further up so it's easier to access. They're no too excited about that idea.

    It's still clean, but at least one party has been there shooting, and left mostly shotshell debris. I picked up four clays they used for targets [and missed]. Whoever it was moved the rotten log to one side but couldn't move the boulder which is part way up the access road.

    My rangefinder said it was 130 yards to the back wall, from the front of the pit where it flattens out at the top of the access road. Standing at the gravel slope on the right [north], it was 90 yards to the south bank of the pit.

    If DNR just kept the line of boulders at the top of the access road, eliminating the log and boulder half-way up, there would be room for 5-6 vehicles.

    Bill,

    Thanks for letting us know about this and all the time you put into these events.:cool:

    I'm happy to say that I will be there barring some emergency and look forward to see a bunch of faces I have not seen in awhile as well as always meeting new people and friends.

    I'm looking forward to catching up with you and being in much better condition then I have been in the past;).




    For anyone that has not attended one of these cleanups, I will say this - the cleanup goes very fast with more people and then the shoot afterwards is always a hoot / safety is always handled well and it sounds like we will get some extra events in and a raffle on top of it that goes to a great cause.

    I highly recommend everyone in Vancouver come up and anyone 30-45 min from Vancouver, it's really not that far and you get to meet people you have talked to online and put faces to names.

    You do not have to be in top condition nor have a 4x4 to get to this location so transportation should not be an excuse:p

    Ill cram a bunch of shootable steel targets in the car too. Everyone enjoys the ring of steel.

    The really good shooters go for the smaller chain holding them up! @Mikej

    Bummer! I can't see doing a cleanup without you there! Maybe I should cancel it?

    Gonna see if we can keep a 15' whitewater raft upright in the Lower Deschutes River that weekend.
    And maybe tangle with Mr. Big a time or two.

    There may be a new recruit showing up with a full size pickup.
    And he's a good hand, as well.

    I have a feeling there will be lots of new recruits at this one! Too bad I won't be there because I'll be on that boat with you chasing the illusive big one! (Yeah, in my dreams!)

    Thanks DD!

    Normally top off the garbage can each week with any trash I bring back from the woods. But with the next cleanup coming soon, I told the grandsons our trash pickup last Saturday would be saved for DNR. My rule is: I provide the ammo; they take a 5 gallon bucket to pick up trash every time we inspect/replace a target.

    Pic is what we brought back July 15th. Metal, paper and plastic in the garbage can; shotgun shells and 7.62x39 steel case in the orange and green 5 gal buckets; brass and a few dud rounds in the yellow bucket.
