Here's a video i made while out there with my cousins. The stuff on the ground and behind the honeydew is pretty typical of the entire area.


I only shoot at paper, cans, or fruit that local critters will end up eating.

I'd definitely help with the cleanup, but i'm only in socal about twice a year to visit family.

Saturday in October sounds good. Would calguns be willing to rent a dumpster? I rented a pretty large one to clean out my Dad's house after he died, it ended up costing me about $450 with delivery.

I would be willing to drive up from San Diego if we have the clean up when the weather cools off a bit. Are there some decent camping spots out there as I would probably make a 2 or 3 day weekend out of it. Please keep me posted.

I have sent emails to BLM and the local trash folks for contacts - still waiting but will make phone calls tomorrow (day off) to see if it is possible with only a month to go....

I hope to get a roll off dumpster delivered to the site. It would be a great help if someone local has a bobcat or loader that can ferry the bigger stuff from the long site to the dumpster....

For those interested, please pencil it in and I will let y'all know as I learn stuff. If nothing else, getting a few trucks up there will make a dent.

OK, finally got ahold of a very nice and helpful BLM employee regarding this cleanup. She was excited to help but we found out together, using what maps we had to share (over the phone) that most, if not all, the shooting area is actually private property. BLM cannot help on private property....

Does someone have the ability to check land ownership in the area? I cannot get to the county offices till at least Friday...

Dang, that's a shame.

I was really looking forward to going there for the first time in addition to meeting fellow Calgunners. Hopefully there will be some good news to come.

Not sure if you had a chance to go to the county yet... But the below link should at least lead us to a mailing address. I am on my phone right now and as such somewhat limited

Re:

Dammitt!
That situation just busts my hump.
Will bring the same amount of trash bags next time, & 2 steel rakes.
Maybe another one of the neighbor's kids, too.

Are you using USGS topo maps?

The grids on these are laid-out by ownership/UTM coords.
Different grid colors, etc: Translate to ownership or public authority.

i've been up to that area a few times and always take trash home with us... we use the harbor freight hand magnet stick with the release handle... works really good at picking up shotgun hulls and nails/screws... my kids enjoy that part almost as much as shooting... lol

No kidding...I find that when I go out with the kids...the trick is that while I'm setting up the tables and chairs and guns etc...I make them all pick up for about 30 or 45 minutes. They're so amped to be there and to go shooting that it flys by for them. Then when we're done...it's a snap to pick up our stuff and the place is CLEAN.

Brilliant, Mate!
(A psyops vet, perhaps?)

Regardless, will use it on the neighbor's kids for our next outing.

I would be in for a clean up. I'm kinda new to shooting there, I just started going to Hodge about 6 months ago, been there about 4 times since and camped once. Always try to clean up a bit, but there is just a ton of trash. Would almost need to make your own tool/rake to clean the shells up. Maybe a metal bow rake and weld in an extra tine inbetween each.

Anyone know someone that owns their own construction/excavating biz?

With all the new shooters that bought their AR's during this frenzy, they're gonna be shooting at places like Hodge and it's gonna get severely worse... and dangerous. Still, I don't want to see this place shut down.

As long as I'm available/free... count me in to help. I have a truck. (G38, I'm also in OC. PM me if you want to get together).

PM me if you set up another cleanup. I can get a few people to help. I've been to Hodge a few times and it is definitely cleaner now than it was 10 years ago, but it can always get better.

I am a High Desert native. To hear fellow Calgunners concerned about Hodge Rd. is very refreshing. Count me and my family in for future clean ups of this area.

I think we need a person to take owner ship. Looks like we have a good size group of people, but need someone to take charge and say lets do this on xyz day and time.
