View Full Version : Range clean up pics in Placer County

11-22-2009, 12:53 PM
We managed to only put a smallish dent in the place.

We plan to go back.

Although by the time we do get back there I'm thinking it will be just as bad as it was prior to us arriving.--If not worse.

Here's the before and after pics and the motley group.

Sorry for the blur, lens was having trouble focusing in the mist.

Yes. Our group was small.

And you really can't get an idea as to what the range really looked like. The only lens I had was a telephoto.... So as you can see you only manage to get a soda straw perspective on the area.

Any date set for the next clean-up?

11-22-2009, 3:18 PM
No official date. But I know I want to get out there again, soon.

seesm--the guy in the orange--wants to get back out fairly soon too.

Maybe within a month or less from now?

11-22-2009, 3:21 PM
Please let us know when the next time is Scoob_i_e and we will go back out again.

Hopefully we can borrow a dump trailer and like 6-10 of us and have a nice day of shooting and a little clean up and heck maybe a BBQ...

Today was WET NON BBQ weather haha... But at least we made a dent!

PLEASE jump on board.

BTW why can people not just shoot pumpkins and other stuff that is biodegradable? :) Carry out what you carry IN!!

11-22-2009, 3:23 PM
Nice, too bad Placerville area is a long drive from here. When my friends/family and I go to BLM we try to take more stuff home then what we took.

Keep up the good work guys,


11-22-2009, 3:33 PM
Hey seesm. Nice to meet you and your two helpers.

As far as a date for the next time....

Don't know whether your schedule becomes crazy during the holidays but I'm essentially detached of any and all obligations during the next 30 or so days. :)

So even though turkey day and xmas are coming up, I'm free.

Question is whether you or anyone else would be during the next upcoming month?

11-22-2009, 3:46 PM
Gio make a plan to come up... Placerville is far from us actually... We are talking Placer county we were in the Tahoe national forrest above Forresthill. maybe 35-45 miles from Sacramento.

My buddy i think he calls it the "Stupid spot" beautiful place but people seem to be or get stupid when there and litter like crazy.... It makes me sick hence my thread and also Scoob_i_es thread here...

Yes Scoob_i_e it was nice to meet you as well. Let me know when is good you... obviously tool wise shovels and magnets and such I have so its a no brainer...

The kids are wildmen but were helping for like 3 minutes.... :) I think if we shoot next time (on a dry day) they would be more into it... :) As far as the holidays I have soem family that will be around but I can sneak out for a few hrs most any day I think... DO a little juggling with work and such.

Lemme know.

11-22-2009, 3:57 PM
Yep, that's the stooopid spot we went to seesm.

Sorry I couldn't be out there w u guys today. I should be able to make the next cleanup if I get a little notice.

I shoot at that spot regularly and I really don't want it shut down.

11-22-2009, 4:14 PM
Dec 27th? That would yet again be on a Sunday.

11-22-2009, 4:21 PM
Hey guys, let me know on here or pm me when you've set a date for the next round of cleanup. I've never been to this spot but it would be nice to meet up somewhere, find a new spot and clean it up a bit. Weekends are best for me (loving the unemployed life) and maybe fridays too. School interferes with the rest of the week.

11-22-2009, 4:43 PM
The spot is sorta secret but some know about it and most fo who shoot out there DO NOT give a sh*t if it gets shut down it seems..... The U.S. Forrestry service IS watching this area to see what to do next... My hope are we do this and keep it clean on a regular basis maybe even the DIRTBALLS who leave **** will at least pull some of what they carry in (OUT)

Anyway BIGCHRIS was supposed to show up as well but got sick last night so hopefully he is feeling better and can make it as well next time...


and Me

That is a start for sure but let get some more...

Dec. 27th works for me. I'll bring a big 4x4 truck that we can load up and possibly a trailer. Please PM me if you guys are gonna go.

11-25-2009, 8:52 PM
Lets make a plan to do this... I and my helpers are in. :)

11-26-2009, 9:02 AM
So... Hopefully Dec 27th stays the date. But as always time will tell.....

I am assuming that day is probably about best due to the (obvious) fact that;

Turkey day and xmas would then be done and over.....

Day-after-xmas sales are probably mostly done.

It's also the last weekend prior to new years--before more craziness starts.... I.e.; more partying.

I figure if the date is pushed past the weekend of the 27th then the party days this time of year (again turkey, xmas and new years) will have taken it's toll on most of us and it will all be too much for any of us to drag ourselves out to a clean up.

At least not for awhile after the fact anyways. :)

11-27-2009, 7:20 PM

Nice job Guys!...That computer has a hard drive. Hook up the drive to see if it has any info on who left it... Then send it back as a Christmas present. Postage due. After fileing a police report for littering. It's a $1000.00 fine and the dept. needs the money.

11-27-2009, 10:50 PM
12/27 sounds good. I can bring a couple shovels, rakes and a wheelbarrow to help. Is Plink going to send an email about this?

11-28-2009, 7:34 AM
Count me in also..

11-30-2009, 11:06 AM

Great, great job!
Inspires me to do the same next time out on BLM down here.
Can always bring along extra buckets and bags for garbage detail.

12-11-2009, 4:13 PM
I live between Auburn and Colfax. Just say the word and I’m in for the next cleanup.

12-11-2009, 10:03 PM
If someone will PM me where the place is, I'll try and get out there with my daughters to help. I live in Antelope

12-12-2009, 11:34 AM
I'll come out, ill bring help and tools. pm the time and place. Im in rocklin.

12-12-2009, 4:20 PM
Dec 27th 9am Raleys parking lot (off the Auburn - Ravine exit off hwy 80 in Auburn... I suspect if the snow is bad it will be just a shoot instead of a clean and shoot or vice versa...

12-13-2009, 7:00 PM
I put it on my calendar. We'll see what happens with holiday guests and what not.

12-14-2009, 8:58 PM
Word up Wulf!! Thanks!!

12-15-2009, 2:51 AM
Is this the "range" up near Dutch Flat?

12-15-2009, 8:17 AM
Dang, that looked like a scene from China when I was there years back. Im glad you guys cleaned it up. Great job guys!

12-15-2009, 10:51 PM
Mif slim come out for the next one my man!!

12-16-2009, 10:16 AM
Is this the "range" up near Dutch Flat?

the 'range' just above Colfax has been closed. could be there is one up near dutch flat, interested to know if so.

I don't think i can make this cleanup on the 27th. Checking things over, but not looking good at this time. Nothing is looking good at this time :( but hey, 2010 is just around the corner. Here's to a good new year to all.

12-16-2009, 11:16 AM
wow I applaud you guys for your efforts. Makes me angry when people litter

12-16-2009, 7:19 PM
Alot of dirt balls in the world for sure. I hope to have them see a clean place a few times and maybe it will change there ways...

12-16-2009, 11:30 PM
Mif slim come out for the next one my man!!

Yeah I would, it's too bad I'm 189 miles away. But I'll take a reign check! Because I do come up often

12-18-2009, 12:40 AM
Don't wine it only 189... :) Jk maybe another time.

12-18-2009, 6:45 AM

Pfft. Who cares? I drove 180 mi + to Panoche for a clean up. :)

12-18-2009, 11:13 AM
Scoob_i_e is the man and he is hard core however... Come on Mif come on by...

02-06-2010, 6:47 PM
when you set a new date please contact me with the proper information and I will be there to help out.

02-12-2010, 4:38 AM
I would most likely be up for it as well if needed.

02-18-2010, 10:13 PM
I bet the area is clear of snow by now. I was just out beyond Iowa hill, near sugar pine resevoir day before yesterday, and I saw at most 4-5 tiny patches of snow, and I went to Foresthill today. Didn't see any snow.

We should try and go soon if we continue to get spring like weather.

On another note, has anyone been to the area above Oxbow Reservoir? There's a lot of targets out there that people have left, and the "range" is encircled by earth walls on 3 sides, with the hill with the road on it on the fourth.

02-20-2010, 9:52 PM
im also waiting for the next one, im trying to get up in that area to do some photography anyway...

02-21-2010, 12:09 AM
Hey guys and gals!

Those of you interested in participating in this effort, please check in at the link below...even those of you whom have posted here previously please.

"Stupid Spot" Foresthill Ongoing Range Cleanup and Shoot Thread (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=272105)

The spot looks like it could use all the help it can get to remain beautiful and open to shooters!

02-21-2010, 10:45 AM
Nooner bump for the Sunday Sacramento crew...

12-30-2010, 12:19 PM
where is the range pictured in the clean up in placer county located?

01-19-2011, 10:59 AM
heya bud! count me and the little red truck in! Long as I dont get a call for work I will be only going to school mon-thurs in the afternoons other than that it varies but I am expecting lots of free time!

Scoob_i_e is the man and he is hard core however... Come on Mif come on by...

12-13-2011, 11:01 PM
I heard a few months ago from Sleepy1988's Dad that this area is a TOTAL mess... I HATE PEOPLE WHO LEAVE a MESS!

12-14-2011, 7:22 AM
good work Scoobi!

12-15-2011, 10:48 PM
-Been meaning to see/go there as my inlaws live in applegate.

-saw the place a few days ago and cleaned up a bit, didnt shoot since I didnt think I could find the place/ didnt bring guns.

My friend found a Ipod...plugged it in and it was still working....

BTW...aside from paying for the dispossal of the big stuff in the range like electronics crap..where can I throw those?

12-19-2011, 1:45 PM
Just wanted to say thanks to you folks for cleaning these places up!

Its no wonder there is such hate for shooters and people wanting public land closed to target shooting. Shooters can be nasty pigs that absolutely destroy everything and leave it covered with garbage. Those electronics are hazard as a tube tv has 10lbs of lead in it. Glass cuts up the feet of wildlife.

Thanks for cleaning up after the slobs who don't have the responsibility or ethics to shoot on public lands and clean up after themselves!
