Default South Bay - Please Help

Hello all, long time listener first time caller here

I just moved to the Santa Clara (South-Bay) area and am trying to find a place to safely and legally shoot outdoors (likely on BLM land?). Years ago I used to use the geocommunicator tool, which apparently now just re-directs to the DOI.gov website.

Can anyone advise me of the closest options to legally (and safely) target shoot (not at a range). GPS coordinates would be the best (find the spot on google maps, right click on it, and select "what's here", then copy the data in the maps search bar)

FYI I'm a extremely clean, safe, and legal shooter, I take a roll of trash bags with me and leave every area 100x cleaner than I found it, even picking up spent shells etc. Telling me about a "hidden gem" is no threat, but rather another shooter assisting the clean up. Feel free to message privately to preserve those areas.

Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I prefer hiking around (usually deep into the woods) and shooting there....kind of a mix of target shooting and hiking.

Are you able to direct me to an "exact" spot in Panoche Hills?

tumey hills - not exact but pretty close. unknown if they are currently open, I wouldn't doubt the gates would be locked, but it wouldn't surprise me if they will kick you out if walk in either (usually isn't an issue)

probably get better response in the "Shoots, Meets and Range Stories" section - or they might throw a fit and say that you should have posted it here?
