Default FRESNO: National forest sight clean up 4-28-12

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.


People Going and what they are bringing:

1. Lives In Fresno
2. Peopleofthesun- Tri-Tip
3. HOESAYE559
4. Blackandredwarrior
5. Adam B.
6. gsrious
7. 10RNDr- Tri-Tip
8. Couchisland.com- Hot links

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.

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.

Thanks for the update. I go there several times a year with my brothers. We always comeback with more than we brought. I'm totally in for a shoot-clean-que. I can bring a crew cab pick-up.

Awesome! I'm thinking burgers and dogs. Unless people want to start pitching in or everyone bring up a slab of tri tip and I'll supply the buns and sauce and pilaf.

Never been there, but have hunted in the past up on Beasore road. Will try to make it if I don't have any other commitments. Will bring up a tri-tip if I go. Can someone give more specific directions or is there signs on road 222?

That would be awesome. The way I remember it is the entrance is right after the second National Forest sign you pass.

This is awesome coincidence. I'm visiting my pops in Fresno in April and he wanted to do some outdoor shooting. I might end up there before the 'Q so I'll try to put a dent in the trash to help, otherwise I'll bring some hot links.
