08-23-2009, 9:39 PM
just wondering if anyone knew of a good shooting area around lake county. It's not that far of a drive for me from Vacaville and Napa. Plus shooting in the great outdoors is just sweet. so anyone have any info? thanks

or is there a cool shooting range around the BLM cache creek area?

I dont know about those areas, but i do know that whatever falls under the Knoxville land for BLM, target shooting is now illegal.

Knoxville is like the closest BLM land to the bay area, north of Napa, so just a heads up.

Go up to Indian Valley (Lake/Colusa co.) off of Walker ridge road. Thousands of BLM acres for your shooting pleasure. I take the trip a few times a year to get outside and enjoy the scenery.

There's a range at Boggs Mtn, just past Middletown. I haven't been, but it's outdoors.

Co-workers used to make a couple of trips a year there, I went once. Shame it's closed! They had found a pretty cool shooting area with a great natural backstop, and camped out for days.

Anyone know why it closed? I assume it's "all" closed to target practice (I read thier website that said "hunting" was allowed)?

I heard the BLM closed it because of the trash and the stupidity of some people shooting across the roads or with no backstop, used to be a fun place. I was up at a BLM area in Reno and found the same thing all kinds of junk shot up and yes people setting targets and shooting across the road at them. Oh Well.
Be a goodman sportsman and be responsible so others do not have a reason to pick on gun owners.

Do you have the GPS coordinates? I haven't been able to locate the range there.
