Camping was good,weather fair not hot at all.Filled up some trash bags, but it is overwhelming.I was the only one cleaning anything.
There were a couple of guys who
1.Didn't like the NRA said they were too radical
2.threw their trash on the ground.
3.said no one should have an AK AR or "A" something (could not quote a model#)
4.I told them take care of that 10/22 might be all we have left when the grabbers complete their mission
the anti NRA guy said "they're not gonna get my pistols"
short conversation . I don't suffer stupid people

Old thread, but I'm still interested in heading up there. Preferably not on a weekend, and preferably before it gets warm enough that campers and water skiers take over the place. :D

Count me in. We camp on the Eel over Labor Day and shoot there all weekend. I hate pulling up to shoot only to realize that the people next to us are drinking. Save that for your campfire later.

We use
We used to go there when I was about 6 years old. Good memories fishing there. California was actually a free state back then.

Just stumbled onto this thread looking for USF range and was thinking about those guy's who said they didn't care for the NRA.
You should of told them if it wasn't for the NRA they probably wouldn't even own any of the guns they had or be shooting out there.:cool:

I was up at lake pillsbury hunting turkey this weekend. The range was as dirty as ever. I ran into a ranger who said next week the forestry service was going to clean then range up, including all the brass and shotshells left there.

Did you have any luck hunting gobblers? I used to hunt them there, but haven't been up in a couple of years.

I saw about 11 bearded up there around our cabin, too bad there is a no hunting rule on the ranch property. Only saw 1 outside the ranch. Had fun though.

They let shooters mess up Pillsbury and Cow Mountain so they won't mess up the rest. True story.
