Been awhile since I heard that! LOL!

Let me see if I remember correctly:

Reveille, reveille.
All hands heave out and trice up
Smoking lamp is lit in all authorized spaces (Now that's dating myself!)
Sweepers sweepers man your broom, give the ship a clean sweep down both fore and aft
Dump all trash clear of the stern (U/W) (or) in receptacles provided for on the pier
Mess line is now open watch reliefs to the head of the line

Now Reveille!

What a GREAT day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With all the help from the Cal-Gun Volunteers we were able to clean
Not 1 ...........Not 2 ......... But 3 Canyons Cleaned

That's right ....With all that Great Help ( Elbow-grease )
We Hit it Hard and Fast ...................
And still had some time to " Plink "

After we were done and I was at another canyon . The LEO Ranger came by and asked how it went !
I told her that we got 3 Canyons DONE .......
She had to go see for herself and came right back to Thank me and ALL the Cal-Gun Volunteers who made this happen
She will tell the 'Higher Ups ' So this will not go un-noticed what an effort the Cal-Gun people are doing to keep areas like Bee Canyon OPEN for a long time

Again I want to Give a Big THANKS to the people who came out on a Sunday Morning to help clean others peoples trash !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Heads up to all that are going out to the canyon, it is getting warmer and dryer, the activity level for today 5/14 was a 3 and tomorrow 5/15 is a 3 also which means no shooting past 1PM. I am sure it will go back to all day when we get some June Gloom weather.

Best time to shoot is in the morning anyways IMO...

FWIW, ever since I purchased a Deagle I got into reloading and now it is just habit to grab every piece of brass I see that is not .22.

As far as leaving trash behind, only the stuff that is quick to break down like clay pigeons.

I wonder if the rangers were able to install garbage bins or something midway down if more people would throw their garbage into them instead of leaving it all behind. Then of course all the RBSOB would start showing up and chucking all kinds of crap in there too so nevermind I see why...

I've posted a couple of times where the dumpsters are over at Cranston Ranger Station .

I try to contact people when they are shooting at tell them FTF where the dumpsters are

Today I met a huge group that was from Long Beach (, They were having a bachelor party....... Shooting first ........Then Party tonight )
They came all the way from Long Beach . The reserved a spot at Burros Range but when they got there ...They were told they were sold out

I met them as they were setting up and told them where the dumpsters were
Not only did they clean thier mess when done ...They took out a few boxes of other stuff ............ :thumbsup:

I was up in the canyons today and met up with 2 of the OHV ( Off Highway Vehicle ) guys were on patrol
One of them was the main guy
They asked if I was the one who installed the signs
They thought it was Great !!!!!!
They noticed how much cleaner it is out there and Wanted me to pass along a 'Thanks " to the Cal-Gun people who made all this happen

Sounds like our efforts are making a differance

EatDirt and CalGuns,

First of all, let me THANK YOU for your efforts!!!

I am the Liaison Coordinator for the Adopt-A-Trail program in the San Bernardino National Forest. We have about 4000 volunteers that survey and maintain roads and trails throughout the SBNF.

A couple years back, I personally surveyed all the roads/trails in the San Jacinto Mtn range, of which were reported to the aforementioned Dave Bentley.

Bee Canyon was a point of interest due to the "1 percent-ers" that do not care about preserving the longevity of their available recreation spots. Sadly, they will be the first people to react negatively if/when it is ever closed. It is organizations like yours that will work hard to press the system to keep the views of our recreations in balance.

This is why I want to commend you on your pro-active actions. It is these efforts that you have coordinated, that will help preserve what we have left.

About 6 weeks ago, I purchased my first 'real' handgun. I visited Bee Canyon a few times and hauled out a lot more crap than what I hauled in, including 2 5-gallon buckets full of brass.

Yesterday, I presented my wife with her Birthday gift and we went shooting. After which, we began to survey 5S09. I'd like to THANK YOU FOR PROVING ME WRONG!!! Enroute to 5S09, my wife and I came across your signs reflecting your previous efforts to clean up the last 3 box canyons in Bee Canyon.

Great job and Thank you!!!

The AAT program is the driving force to not only maintain roads and trails, but also to maintain the provision for accessibility to all other recreations. I will try to get of work off to join you guys on the work day.

If you ever feel the urge to continue your efforts in maintaining and outreaching for responsible recreation, I would love for you to follow up with me to discuss what potential you have in the AAT program.

(This is being forwarded Greg Hoffman, the OHV Programs Manger of the San Bernardino National Forest.)

Sincerely,
Michael P

Welcome to Calguns! Thanks for the kind words, it is nice to hear that from someone in your position and I am sure all of us that have helped clean the canyons feel good that it is being noticed.

It's funny when you are driving to the dumpsters with a full load of trash there are always people shooting in other canyons that stop and look, take a double take look again and point. I have wondered what they think, are they bringing it or taking it away? Now that Eat Dirt made the signs it will be evident to them what is happening.

I talked to Eat Dirt the other day and were thinking of another clean up before it gets hot. Bring your new gun and have some fun with us shooting after we clean up a bit. I have met a bunch of nice people and everyone always brings something different to shoot and share.

Great to have you here .
I want to Thank You for all the nice words but I couldn't of done these clean -up without the People of Cal-Guns who Volunteer their time , use up their gas . and put in the sweat and elbow grease to get this done

Like 'Chklynps' who comes out with his kids all the way from Anza . other members from Temecula , Riverside and beyond have came out here to lend a hand to show what they can do to perserve a Jem of a shooting area .
To show to others that people in the shooting commiunity are concerned about the land and what happens to it
I've met some people out there that think it's their right to have a place like this ,, But in reality
it's a privilege to have a spot like Bee Canyon

I would also like to thank you MP330 for the kind words. Although the canyon is getting cleaned slowly by surely by the efforts of Calguns members, I would like it to be known (tho he may protest) that RON (Eat Dirt) is the one who is responsible for organizing these various cleanups. He has also built up a rapport with the Rangers and Forest Service personnel from the nearby Forest Service Station. They now know us to be the type of responsible people and shooters who want to ensure Bee Canyon remains open for all.

He has been shooting in Bee Canyon for over 30 years (which makes him a bit on the older side:D) and he has seen the changes that have occurred during this time. It has been his unselfish efforts that have led to our members not only discovering this shooting area, but pitching in to try and keep it clean.

Kudos RON for your hard efforts!

Hey ,,,,,,,,What's with this " On the older side" ??
Just cause I remember watching the T.V. in Black and White :eek:

What I do out there and on the forum is because I enjoy it / Not looking for any name in the paper stuff

Nothing like seeing a Father with his son out there / Teaching him or her how to shoot
Even seen Grandparents out there with the Young'ins

We're right in the middle of tiling the house (what a freaking mess) plus our grandson is flying in from Texas Saturday. We'll be to the canyon shooting sometime while he's here and I can guarantee we'll be cleaning up after ourselves. I want him to see and use the canyons, but be responsible as well.

Have fun out there and be safe.

Eat Dirt didn't mention it, but he was driving his Rhino thru the canyon last weekend and saw a black pickup and two guys who were shooting at one of the canyons we had cleaned up. He went over and said hi and they hi'd him back.

He drove away and when he returned, he saw them driving away down the dirt road. As he drove by the canyon, he noted the signs had been shot up with a .45 and destroyed. He caught up with the guys and asked them about it. They first denied it and said they had been shot up when they arrived, but when he told them they were fine when he was there before, they admitted it and gave him money to replace the signs. Some people.:rolleyes: At least they gave him money so he could replace them.

One of these days I will have free time on the day of a clean-up. Was out there Thursday morning with my friend who is still relatively new to guns letting him shoot a few of mine. Was only in my Jetta wagon, but still loaded up and took out to hefty bags full of trash and cardboard from the less considerate people that use the canyon.

I arrived about a half hour early (9am was the scheduled time) and thought I'd read my book until people began showing up. Wrong. There were already about 6 people there busy cleaning up. Ron had been there since 7am, putting up the sign and setting out cones before the canyons so vehicles would be aware of our cars around the curve. Great work everyone.

No book next time, but hey Ron, where were the donuts this time. As a retired leo, I have a duty to eat at least one per month.:D

ETA: I don't recall who mentioned Temecula is forcing the businesses where Faith Armory is located to move due to a street extension, but I have an update. I called earlier and they said they were told they were to be out and in their new location by 12-11, so the city evidently isn't moving very fast. They don't know when the city will require them to move, so they are open for business as usual for now.

Call lake hemet (951-659-2680) I don't think they let canoe's on the lake, they have had a sign up for 30+ years that I remember but they just changed management so check to make sure. Would hate to see you drive all that way and get sent home.

Eat Dirt was talking about maybe doing another clean up before it gets to hot. We have put stuff in the back of trucks and just got it out by hand or with a shovel and have found out the best way is 1 or 2 trucks and trash cans. The cans are much easier to fill, get to the truck and then empty at the dumpsters. 4 or 5 truck loads is about all the dumpsters will hold and they are only a mile down the pavement.

Was pissed. Got all loaded up expecting the canyon to be open on Friday morning, was taking one of my buddies that rarely gets to shoot with me to try out the AR-15, get out there, and all the "No Target Shooting" signs are up. At least he drove the Wrangler so we took the trails up to Idyllwild, so the trip wasn't a complete waste. Guess it's back to paying range fees for me, at least for now.

Close ..............Very Close
It was on the other side of the highway from where you turn into Bee Canyon

Some intelligent Person pulled off the road onto the shoulder going up to Idyllwild and thier catalytic converter started the fire

It burned all the way up the grade on the hillside up to that row of tall Italian Cypress

Looked like about 40 Acres went up

I don't know where you live, but besides the new Beumont range mentioned, there is Riverside Magnum off of Magnolia and Buchanan St. That is just west of Pierce St. The old owner of the range just bought it back.

I would say thats about right, 4 trips in my truck and 1 trip in Eat Dirts van = 2 full dumpsters at the ranger station.

Bee Canyon is so awesome! I love going there and getting my car, clothes and guns covered in dirt while shooting up all the ammo I posses. I would love to go clean up with you guys! Every time I am there I load up trash bags with whatever myself and shooters from earlier that day left. From the first time I shot there, I could tell its a very community oriented place. My favorite shooting spot! I am willing to do whatever to keep it open. Eat Dirt, I think I've met you before. I think everyone who's ever shot there has met you... Ever go around on a small offroad vehicle with your wife picking up shells?? Whoever that guy is, ya got my respect.

Well...With " Nobody " useing the canyons there has been NO change in the trash problem
Actually ....They are somewhat all clean at this time , Well maybe one could use some help ( Next to last ) but all in all ,,, Not bad


BUT

A NEW problem has popped up !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With NO shooters around

That would be a good idea for the idiots that drive back there to dump trash, maybe catch a license plate? but for the offroaders, you wouldn't be able to positively I.D. them with a helmet and full gear on, and the mx bikes don't have license plates. Maybe have signs posted at each shooting area stating "All offroad vehicles must stay on the designated trails, or be cited". It might slow it down then, but without constant enforcement by the rangers, they will just keep on doing it. :(

It wouldn't be hard to have cams in the parking area, and match the a-holes tearing up the canyons to the vehicle that the bike came off of. They could also get transmitting cameras so that they can know when to get out their rather than dedicating manpower to baby sitting.

My guess is that they don't do it for red tape reasons. Not so much that it wouldn't work or pay for itself.

Went out again today (hey I'm retired - I got time). At first there was 3-4 vehicles with 10 shooters total spread out on the hill. No one down below near the road. As we were looking for a space one truck on the far end (in the direction of the great fire, before it dips down) left so we set up there. As we were shooting everyone cleared out, taking their trash with them. (yeah I'm that nosy)

While reloading we heard plenty of high powered shots coming from down by the road. When we left there were three TRUCKS and one car all set up with shooting tables, ez ups, etc. All near the road. Complete dumbazzes.

We took as much trash as we could hold. Some super smart shooter used small sized baby powder bottles as targets (full). I picked them all up while I wondered what his high school gpa might be.

There was an older lady mining brass and she said if we left ours she would clean it up for us. I didn't see her when we left and I was tempted to rake it and trash it, but we chanced it and left it. We shot no steel or shotguns today so it was a simple matter to load our targets and other peoples trash and leave.

No idea where this gate might be. It's not the way I come in.

I took a ride up the canyon on Saturday. It looks like there have been people up there shooting. New trash that has obviously been shot up, shotgun shells on the ground etc. Also on the way to shotgun flats, at the switchback, someone has been shooting. Bunch of crap littering the hillside. I was on my bike so I couldn't pull anything out.

We should do a cleanup before it opens if possible...

You are right Sir ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

That is why we have 'Canyon Clean-Ups " out there
I have been told by the Rangers that they don't have the Time or Funds to keep that place cleaned up
If "We" as a group don't step up and help ( Like a Lot of other Great Cal-Gun people have done on other clean-ups )
Areas like this will be Gone ......Forever

Exactly. We have to step up and clean up after the uneducated, irresponsible shooters or the sites just get closed. Then when there's nothing left we wait in line to pay high prices to shoot indoors or we pay huge money to buy land of our own where we can shoot.

I hate cleaning up after the turds, but I've met some great people at the clean ups. My last five gun purchases came from Counter Strike Firearms after I met the owner during a Bee Canyon clean up.

I've made good friends at the Perris clean ups too. In the end, there is more good that comes from the clean ups than bad. We keep our local spots open, we give shooters a good name and we meet great people. Other than having to clean someone else's mess there is no downside.

I never been to steel peak cuz I dont have a 4wd. But most canyons are flat to 100 yds ( except last canyon before the top which is like 50 yds at most.) then angled cliff. If we get canyon 2, I would say up until about 200-250 yards it is pretty flat, after that it is straight up a canyon side. But the canyon side is so tall on canyon 2 it is at least 500 yds away.

I'm going to try hard to make this one, no guarantees though. Is it cool if I promote the cleanup on Counter Strike Firearms Facebook page? I figure a little more help couldn't hurt.

Bee Canyon Clean Up........January 26,,Saturday

I was just out there yesterday and I'm thinking of cleaning up Canyons #3 and # 4
Easy to get to and lots of parking ( for Dug )
These two canyons have a trail that connect the two , So it would be an easy Clean-Up

Here's the Info. from my " Bee Canyon Info. Thread "

-----------------------------------------------------------

If's anyone is interested ... I took my range-finder out the other Day

Was always wondering what the distance in the canyons are

Here's a List ::

Canyon #1... 70 Yards
Canyon #2... up to 150 Yards
Canyon #3... 75 Yards
Canyon #4... 65 Yards
Canyon #5... 90 Yards
Canyon #6...60 Yards on Left Canyon
80 Yards on Right Canyon
Canyon #7... 25 Yards / Smallest of the canyons, Maybe pistol only

From there is the steep grade going up to Shot-Gun Flats


I went last weekend and shot with some nice folk in canyon 1. Do any of the canyons have tables? I haven't explored them all yet.

No tables ....................

Also No Shade , water, bathrooms, signs , Starbucks ( sorry had to throw that one in the mix )

That's why No Adventure pass needed..

You hunp it in ///You hump it out

0730?! Is that really when y'all are getting there?

Looks like I'll be on the second shift - no way I could make it there that early. But my rake is ready to rock!

Here's to great weather!:cheers2:

Schedule permitting, I'd like to be in on this one. If the weather is good, I'll likely park at Vista Point and ride my quad down to Bee Canyon. Hope to meet some fellow Calgunners. I'll post again when I have definitive confirmation.
