Default Shooting spots on blm in 209

Hey guys, I'm from manteca, I'm looking for a place to do some long distance shooting. Preferably somewhere where I don't have to pay a arm and a leg to shoot a few hundred yards. I just bought a RPR(Ruger Precision Rifle) and want to be able to do some long distance. If you know of any places please let me know.(I'm open to ranges as well, if I have to pay then I have to pay)

I WORK JUST ABOVE COPPEROPOLIS (ABOVE LAKE TULLOCH) A BIT. I HEARD FROM A COUPLE OF CO-WORKERS THAT THERE IS A SPOT THAT IS BLM LAND (THOUGH I MYSELF, HAVEN'T CONFIRMED THAT) WHERE THEY'VE GONE OUT THERE TO SHOOT. I SPOKE WITH ONE OF THOSE GUYS AND TRIED TALKING TO HIM TAKING ME OUT THERE JUST ONCE, SO THAT I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE IT'S AT AND WHERE TO SET UP....LONG STORY SHORT, HE TOLD ME HE WOULD GO "ONE DAY", THOUGH HE SAID THAT A LITTLE MORE THAN A YEAR AGO, AND TILL TODAY, I HAVEN'T GONE WITH HIM YET, EVEN AFTER "REMINDING" HIM A FEW TIMES ABOUT GOING. I'LL JUST HAVE TO KEEP TRYING, OR JUST SAY TO MYSELF, "HECK, I'LL JUST DRIVE DOWN THAT ROAD AND FIND A PLACE AND SET UP MYSELF", I GUESS.

Nope, it's mostly hills up in Copperopolis. I drive through Copper. on a daily basis because I work a bit further up in Jamestown. But most of the land up there are privately owned and are mostly cattle ranches...all fenced off, so of course, no trespassing.

In the olden days, you could get away with shooting between the 2 canals, Delta Mendota & California aqueduct, where they get wide between Vernalis and Westly. There's places with big berms for back stop. One local crew has a 1K range there off McKraken, between the ditches, before the Westly Triangle. The south end of Bird Road was also good Rustin's dirt, but there's a quarry there now. Pigs and elk too further up toward Mt. Oso. PAX

If you know the name of the road drive until you find the trash piles. That's the shooting spot.

Its crazy how secretive everyone is with there spots. I do understand why though, these places are like gold. Tell the wrong person and it could all be ruined.

Yes all it takes is one bad apple. There are too many people in Ca that hate our 2A rights. All it takes is some lazy shooters to leave a mess and ruin it for the rest of us.

It's worse than just a few bad players.
Anytime there is a large number of people using an area it is detrimental.
The critical number will vary by site but at some point over-usage breaks down the area.

I'd love for a tip on a spot in the area as well. I've recently transferred to this area and I haven't found anywhere worthwhile yet.

I've been on the hunt for somewhere in Stanislaus national forest but can't find anything that's secluded enough for my liking.

Shooting locations are not given out for a reason. The next numbnuts comes thru and kills it for all. Best it to search and shoot. Plenty of spots i have found exploring out there.

Or get in with someone that knows, they will blindfold you till you are there . Dont mind the banjo and the squealing on the ride up

Any shooters in the Columbia/Sonora area who would like to get together for coffee, and/or go out and burn a few rounds?

I am looking for sites to go shooting, and I am good at keeping secrets and cleaning up after myself.

I am retired, so pretty much available.

Send me PM if you are interested. Thanks,
