This is picture intensive but this was somewhat of a major undertaking because wow there was far more garbage here than what I had thought and I had an actual on-site perspective on the amount of stuff here and I believed that trailers would be unnecessary. I was wanting to avoid having people bring trailers to save the hassle but in reality I think I made things more difficult due to everyone having to lift everything into the truck beds!




Day begins..... We were there from 8:30 to 11:30 and finally left the landfill around noon.

The I-Man makes repeat appearances... I must say I impress even myself with my superb photo-shop skills. The realism is stunning even to me!

Dirk Tungsten's golf cart. Or no wait we decided it belonged to that group of people we ran into.

Five yes (5) truck loads of trash look to the far right for the dark colored Toyota. It blends in with the bush. Unfortunately I forgot to get a closeup of the trash in the Toyota.

Nice! It sucks that we have to clean up Aholes messes. Makes me wonder if they know what toilet paper is for. Much less how it is used. I think I would have blown the golf cart out of the water with some Tannerite. You should have taken it to a recycling center instead of the dump and made some gas money. Good Job!

Also, it is ok to shoot out there. Yolo SO rolls by sometimes but they are great. Davis PD goes out there to shoot once in awhile with trainees or to get xtra shooting time in. My G/F is DPD and told me this, this is how i learned of it.

I'm shocked this thread has been necro'd...I personally haven't been out there to shoot for a while since I found myself getting the stink eye from some farmer guy who was putting up No Hunting/Trespassing signs all over the place out there. INCLUDING the levy, which I thought was public land. Oh yeah, I also ran into some dudes in duck hunting getup who told me they saw some guys shooting guns out there, so they called the cops (WTF?)

Aaaaaaand I ran out there today just to see the condition of the place and what had recently appeared, but these signs:

And:

Indicating that there is no trespassing allowed. I guess shoot at your own risk?

apparently shooting the signs, is ok. what about the (was it water resources), guy, that let us out of there. he was state employee, he didn't mention anything, did he?

don't see any printing at the bottom of the signs that say, who printed them.
someone paid for them though.

check with your GF, and see if she can find out about these new postings, that is, if it doesn't cause an issue.

01-11-2011, 6:20 AM
Well this is utterly embarrassing. All I can say is this; from two independent sources, I received information that this area was public land. The Dept. of Water Resources and the Public Works division for the County of Yolo both affirmed the land belonged to the city, that in fact the area was not private property. Furthermore, Public Works commented that the gating was there merely to prevent unauthorized vehicular traffic and unauthorized vehicular traffic only and that it had nothing to do with pedestrian traffic.

Don't know what else to say..... I was only going based on what I was told from two different entities (of which both should have been an authoritative source of information.)

Sometimes folks illegally post signs even though the property is public (beaches, BLM, etc).

hey guys i will check and find out....but last i heard it was pulic county/.state land it was ok to shoot there. I will dbl check. I am in LE and if the above is correct it should be ok to shoot. I will check with my source at DPD directly and he will tell me straight up what is going on..stay tuned boys and girls...i have a feeling earth dickwads or the farmers posted those signs. they look real but dont look real feel me :)

Ok bad news...........they are legit signs,. I spoke to a fellow rangemaster from DPD....he says the signs are new and legit. he thinks it was posted because of the jack asses who dumped the garbage not because of the shooters. SOOOOOOOOO it looks like we lost the Davis levee because of white trash to cheap to pay for the dump up the road....Sorry so shoot there at your own risk :(

No its not BLM land..county ro state water resource land I believe. The point is we lost this no hassle shoot area and it pisses me off...oh well. Any other free spots in the sac region you can shoot at?

Rigma
01-12-2011, 8:40 PM
No its not BLM land..county ro state water resource land I believe.

How do you know this? And do you know the name of this water resource district? The reason I ask is that if you know for a fact that the land belongs to a water resource district, and know the name, then we can easily find find the contact information for them.

I will check into it some more, but so far it seems that public agencies such as water resource districts don't usually OWN the land.

Rigma
01-14-2011, 10:20 PM
The land where the clean-up occurred is NOT private land.

As to who owns it...the levee, the water channel and the land North of it are all controlled by different agencies or local municipalities. The land south of the levee is private. The road is used by employees of a number of agencies, as well as for private land access.

The recent attention to this land, including the new signs, may very well have nothing to do with people shooting there. (Hint: Check your local newspaper.)

I have sent my findings to Scoob_i_e for review and to check my facts.

Based on what I have learned, I strongly recommend you DO NOT shoot there.

Hey guys...

I know this is a necro thread, but I am in Solano and have been looking for an outdoor public property range. Is there any other spot up there in Yolo that you are aware of? PM me with it if you like, this is for my shooting enjoyment only and I understand if you don't want to say a location in public.
