Well after spending some time up at the bass lake range, Ive noticed the area has been neglected over some time. Most of the area is shells and casing, glass from people shooting bottles, some old records, metal pieces from various targets. I was approached last week by a gentleman who proposed the idea about having a range clean up. We have thrown some ideas around and some dates and other various things. I have wondered about the locals that shoot there, I don't want to step on someones toes, but I have no idea what to do about the locals that are up there shooting when we are planning on cleaning, Anyone have any ideas? We have decided to make it a clean up, which wont take much time, following have a few targets set up to shoot and Ill be bringing up a BBQ. WHATS BETTER THAN HAVING A CLEAN AREA TO SHOOT AND A BBQ?!?!?

DATE: April 28th, 2012

WHERE: Bass Lake shooting range

http://m.google.com/u/m/xMCtDX

TIME: 1300

I would like to get input on my ideas, and also a head count. It might be a bring your own meat to BBQ or if we have some people that wouldn't mind donating to the event. I will be bringing up a few 55 gallon drums to haul trash, some rakes, and a Costco size roll of trash bags.

I didn't even know there was a place to shoot up there.....then again, I usually go to Shaver and not Bass Lake.

I'll likely be there. If it turns out that funds are needed, for trash bags, food, whatever, consider me committed for help in that corner also.

I will likely leave Fresno at a time that might put me there by Noon or so, and can take one or two more people, if peeps let me know ahead of time that they would like a ride.

You shoot at Shaver lake? Where, exactly?

I already talked to you via private message, but I will post for others. I don't shoot at Shaver. I just meant that since I go to Shaver and not Bass lake, that is why I didn't know there was a place to shoot at Bass Lake.

I like shaver, but bass lake has an open area to shoot and it's nice so I like it up there more. Just needs to be cleaned like noted above. If you have time feel free to join us up there.

Throw this idea to the South Central Section. Last time it went pretty good there. As we started to setup a date to clean that place up another group of youths done the job already. Im sure the rest of the folks in the Fresno area would help.

No snow. No mud. Was up there with another member up there today. Such an amazing place to go and shoot for free. Anyone who is available to take some trash home, let me know. I am trying to get everything organized before hand, so we don't get more trash than we can haul.

There are usually some ruts in the road, so I wouldn't recommend a car. The range is about 80 yards max.

I doubt I will make it, but if I am free I will show up.

Looking at the thread, it looks like only one person is bringing water. Anyone like pepsi? I can bring some if you guys want. Only 9 are on the list (once you add me) so I'm guessing a 24 pack would be enough?????
are some of you bringing friends and family? If yes, I'll bump it up to 48 cans.

" Live In Fresno" offered to give me a ride about 2 hours ago. He wasn't sure if he would have room. I'll see what he says. Do you know a good spot where I can park my car while I ride up there with one of you guys?

If you can afford it, more "cold" soda is always better than less. I'm bringing at least one other person, and I believe others are also. I'll try to bring a cooler full of ice, with the water and other things. I suspect we will have piles of food, and not as much things to drink.

It is supposed to be a high of 69F there on the 28th. Makes for a wonderful day.

You can ride with me, or one of the others...No worries either way. If you want to ride with me, I'd prefer that we hook up in Fresno. Also, I'll likely be going early, leaving fresno around 11am. Send me a pm with your ph # if you'd like a ride.

You're welcome to try out the AR & AK's I'm bringing.
.223/5.56(rifle), 5.45x39(rifle) & 7.62x39(rifle & pistol) You're welcome to use my ammo if you just want to kick in a couple bucks, buying the russian stuff off the shelf is ridiculously expensive, I just get it mail order or at gun shows.

Thanks man!

Just to update:

A number of us will be there early, perhaps as early as 11am. The Ranger station knows we will be cleaning up the place beginning around 1pm and ending sometime (estimated) after 3. I will bring a campfire permit, and can leave it with any person operating a bbq.

For those that are so inclined, and want to get a campfire permit, they are free, and you can get them at any BLM office, and other places as well, such as those locations listed towards the bottom of the page at

Thanks for doing that. I'll be there around 11am too.

I was thinking we might need to put something up marking the entrance to the trail cuz it can be tricky to see the first time there. Any ideas?

That might help...

I'm not sure what rules there may be in the forest area, so I might suggest caution...

There is also a map link in this thread, and people could also use the general guidance "turn right on the next possible turn after the second brown forest sign you see after turning on 222 from 41.

Also, If anyone gets near, and if my reception at the site doesn't totally suck, I can be reached at (559) 425-6242. (This is a google voice number, and will be changed after this event.) Not sure if texts are forwarded...

Finally, if anyone wants to go early, and wants to caravan, you are welcome to follow me up.

Others have my phone number, but those who want it, pm me and I can assist with directions. Also, I will be placing something orange with an arrow pointing to the right to show where to turn.

You guys are great minds thinking alike!

You might consider making it rather large....4 X 4 feet, for example.

All my stuff is .45ACP.

Perhaps just bring what you have, and you can mix/match there. Or perhaps you can shoot what someone else brings.

Mike, thanks again for stepping up and making this happen. Not even a member here for 6 months and you put together an event already.

For those of us who were unable to attend, did any of you take any pictures? I'm told it was a good time.

Wow, can't believe I didn't know about this place. I ride ATV's in Miami Trails just a few miles further on 41 and camp at Little Sandy. Is there a regular meet up for Calguns folks in the area? This should be a regular thing (1st Saturday of every month or something like that) A bunch of folks used to do this on private property but it was off 180 and not too high in elevation so no summer shooting because of the heat and dry brush. Great family atmosphere. NICE JOB ON PUTTING THIS TOGETHER!! I'LL DEFINITELY DONATE MINE AND MY FAMILIES TIME AND LABOR NEXT GO 'ROUND!

Thanks for sharing! Helpful information I have got from here..

Well after spending some time up at the bass lake range, Ive noticed the area has been neglected over some time. Most of the area is shells and casing, glass from people shooting bottles, some old records, metal pieces from various targets. I was approached last week by a gentleman who proposed the idea about having a range clean up. We have thrown some ideas around and some dates and other various things. I have wondered about the locals that shoot there, I don't want to step on someones toes, but I have no idea what to do about the locals that are up there shooting when we are planning on cleaning, Anyone have any ideas? We have decided to make it a clean up, which wont take much time, following have a few targets set up to shoot and Ill be bringing up a BBQ. WHATS BETTER THAN HAVING A CLEAN AREA TO SHOOT AND A BBQ?!?!?

DATE: April 28th, 2012

WHERE: Bass Lake shooting range

http://m.google.com/u/m/xMCtDX

TIME: 1300

I would like to get input on my ideas, and also a head count. It might be a bring your own meat to BBQ or if we have some people that wouldn't mind donating to the event. I will be bringing up a few 55 gallon drums to haul trash, some rakes, and a Costco size roll of trash bags.
