    I was notified today that the Spenceville, Ca range is closed indefinitely.

    Supposedly, signs have been put up and a faily large cable and locks to block the entrance. Gotta love DFG. :fire:

    I also heard that a cow was shot this past week. :cuss:

    I have a point of contact that people can call if they wish to share their displeasure. I'll be phoning him on Monday morning.

    :cuss: :fire:


    Mods, I hope the name and phone number are acceptable. I don't have an email addy for the gentleman or I would have posted it.

    I cruised by the Spenceville range one time.
    It was a bit of a culture shock.
    I came from a black powder rendezvous just down the road.
    The rendezvous people were responsible, helpful people.
    The Spenceville users looked like a lot of wanna-be hard cases.

    It only takes a few idiots leaving shot up trash at pubic sites to make it look more like a dump than a range.

    I hate to lose any shooting facility, it is tough to keep pubic areas open when they get trashed and abused.

    Just an idea.

    Many 4X4 groups have adopt-a-trail agrements with BLM and National Forests.
    A little sweat equity helps keep the trails open.

    If a user group could be put together that would do periodic clean ups and maintaining signs and stuff like that.
    It might give you more pull with the officials.
