I was shocked our Mini Countrymen made it, LOL! we didin't want to shoot near the road so we egged him on.... We cleaned and bagged as much as we could but DAMN! there was a lot of stuff, tires, surf boards left behind... I think I will have to join you guys on the 20th.... The dirt was soft going up...

The first hill is pretty rutted and a lot of soft sand/ silt.

I wish I could make the clean up, but will be out of town.
Thanks for the tow brother! That crew cab is so light in the rear she doesn't get any traction.

My buddy showed up just as you pulled me out so I tied off to him and made it up the hill without any further problems.

I used to be able to go up the center with no trouble, but it's worn into a sandy mess now.

I guess I'll have to bring the big truck from now on.

On another note, there was a huge crowd down by the road shooting when we left. At least ten cars or trucks. We were getting ricochets up at our spot from them though out the morning. We saw a sheriff's car leaving the area when we were and no one was packing up down there so I guess it's ok to shoot that close to the road?

Again - thanks for the Calguns tow support. Saved us from working the high lift or waiting on my buddy.

No worries. One day, I may need the help.

I did see all the cars at the entrance. I also notice a group that hiked in and left their cars by the street.

Is it me, or do people up their not like to call cease fire to set targets. There was a group that was there before us that would just walk out to set targets while everyone was still shooting. Then when every one stopped to set targets, people were down range still, they would start shooting again.

I'm glad they left fairly early. The group that came after them were much better and relayed the cease fire down the line.

Well, I'm new around here and won't actually be in town for this next cleanup, but I want to keep track of this thread and future clean ups (and also actually figure out where this area is located...) I think its great that as a group Calguns is cleaning sites like this and thus helping to keep them open!

I just sent PM's to 30+ people that showed intrest in, or were at the last clean up to see if we could get some names added to the list for the 20th.

Here is a reminder from the BLM volunteer page.

Quote:
Gloves and some tools will be provided, but quantities are limited, so volunteers are encouraged to bring their own supplies as well. These should include personal safety supplies such as sunscreen, hat, gloves, closed-toed shoes, lunch, etc. Light snacks and drinks will be provided.
Last time they had trash bags also but it would not hurt if any of you had a few to bring also.

I would like to volunteer, BUT I need to know if my car (Honda Fit) can make it to the spot, does anybody want to carpool that is going from anaheim/garden grove area, can I meet somebody as close as We can to the clean up area and carpool the rest of the way there?

Your car will make it all the way to where the dumpster will be (pavement all the way) and then catch a ride the next 1000 or so feet to where we will be cleaning. You could ride back and forth to the dumpster to unload and then get things from your car (food, water) as needed. Many people parked there last clean up.

My son had to do community service hours for a class he had last year. He was able to use hours from 3 Bee Canyon clean ups he helped with.



Talked to BLM yesterday and dumpster should be there friday and they will be bringing trash bags and a few rakes & tools, might not be a bad idea if a couple of you guys that had rakes could bring them. Please remember to bring gloves.

Hey Guys, The Shootist in Murrieta just stepped up and offered a gift to 5 clean up volunteers that are planning to buy a new gun. I have 5 cards that give a free DROS for a gun purchase over $300 (thats $25). I want to make sure the cards go to a person that is going to buy a gun soon and is close enough to Murrieta to make a trip there. I don't want them going to waste and not go to a person that is not going to use them.

If you are serious about buying a gun there soon then hit me up at the clean up.

They said they will do the same at the next clean up and for Bee Canyon clean ups also.

If you are serious about buying a gun there soon then hit me up at the clean up.

They said they will do the same at the next clean up and for Bee Canyon clean ups also.

back in Jan I went to the BLM office in Moreno Valley and this nice govt worker sent me this email with info I requested (specifically Steele Peak). If someone can tell me how to post a pdf link here i will; it has very detailed directions.

Thank you for contacting us with your question; we appreciate your desire to locate legal and appropriate places for recreational shooting. While the California District Office has no officially designated recreational shooting ranges within our jurisdiction, there are two areas near the Palm Springs / Palm Desert area (directions are included below) that traditionally have been used for target shooting. Shooting is generally permitted on BLM managed lands, as long as such activity is also permitted in that location by State and local laws, and as long as the safety regulations noted below are observed. All federal, state, and county regulations that apply to shooting apply to public lands. Prior to your trip, check with the nearest BLM office for current conditions, regulations, fire hazard closures and other information.

Please keep in mind the following guidelines:

Just because an area is BLM land, that doesn’t mean it is safe or appropriate to shoot there. Shooting is prohibited within one mile of all campgrounds and developed recreation sites; within 150 yards of any man-made structure, or within 100 yards of any roadway. Since it is prohibited to drive that far off of existing roads, you must be prepared to safely hike to your shooting location. The requirements to be at least this far away from locations where your bullets could be hazardous to others makes many BLM areas unsuitable for shooting.
When shooting, always select a safe location with a backstop. An area with a hillside directly behind the target is ideal. Avoid popular recreation areas and sensitive wildlife habitats. Do not attach your targets to living plants or place targets up against rocks, plants, or solid objects.
Always pick up and remove targets, empty shells, and any other debris after you have finished. You can be cited for littering if you leave any debris; for this reason, in the desert region, you are not allowed to use clay pigeons as targets. Even the so-called “biodegradable” clay targets remain indefinitely in the dry, fragile landscape of the desert.
Use of paintball equipment and projectiles is not permitted on BLM-managed lands. The paint is considered similar to the clay used for skeet targets, and you can be cited for defacing public property with it.
Use of plastic pellets is not permitted on BLM-managed lands.
Shooting should only take place in areas well away from other concentrations of people and property. Do not shoot in the direction of any road, hiking trail or parking area.
Vehicles are restricted to designated routes of travel as posted and as shown on BLM maps. Vehicles are prohibited in all wilderness areas.

It is illegal to:
shoot from or on a public road or highway or from a motor vehicle.
shoot within 150 yards of a home, barn, outbuilding, motor home, camper, or any inhabited area or roadway.
use glass bottles, appliances, and other refuse as targets.

Here are the directions to the two BLM areas near Palm Springs / Palm Desert which are open to target shooting with handguns and rifles as well as shotguns (but remember, no clay targets); directions are given as if you were coming into the Desert Cities area from the Upper Coachella Valley:

Directions to Berdoo Canyon from I-10, near Indio:
From I-10 Eastbound toward Indio, take the Dillon Rd exit - go 0.3 miles down the off-ramp;

Turn left onto Dillon Rd - go 6.3 miles
Turn right at Berdoo Canyon Rd - go 0.7 miles

Directions to Fargo Canyon from I-10, near Indio:
From I-10 Eastbound toward Indio, take the Dillon Rd exit - go 0.3 miles down the off-ramp;
Turn left at Dillon Rd - go 3.3 miles
Turn right at 40th Ave - go 4.3 miles

There are currently no maps online or in electronic form that show sufficient detail so you could accurately determine appropriate locations for shooting. However, BLM sells maps known as Surface Management Status maps. While these maps do not show specific locations for shooting, they do show, by color-coding, where BLM lands are, so you can use these maps to make sure you are not on privately owned lands. View an index of the maps at the following URL to determine which maps you want to purchase: http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/info/iac/Northern_Map.html . You may order them by phone from the State Office Public Room in Sacramento, (916) 978-4401. They are also for sale in each of the field offices and here in the district office. They show public and private land ownership, and are at a scale of about one inch to the mile. The locations referred to above are on the “Palm Springs” map.

I have also attached the Steele Peak directions.

To check land status, check out the interactive maps link at geocommunicator.gov.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Where is the Perris BLM that you are cleaning? Is it Bee Canyon or another place? Is it open for shooting?
