Default Truckee Hobart Mills shooting arear

WE NEED EVERYONE'S HELP

Sorry folks. I have to cancel the April 20 clean up day. I have something comes up that I need to taking care of. The May clean up day is still good for Me.


FYI
Shooting at Hobart Mills two weekends ago, Sheriff and Forest Ranger stop and talk to us and some other folks there. They said that we need clean up and take back what you bring out to shoot, especially the cardboard boxes, cans, tanks and shotgun shell hulls. Otherwise they will close the place down soon. Also, would like to do some cleanup at the range, anyone?

Assume much couldn't be done until late May. I could lend a hand, but not available until August.

When are you planning to do this?

I'd been in for a trip to Hobart.

Maybe bring some brauts/burgers for the grill, spend a couple hours filling up trash bags, and a half hour shooting paper.

Somebody organize this thing!

Let me know also. I would be OK to drive up and help. Also, can anyone resend me directions on how to get there. Would be nice to check it out one weekend. Thanks.

Default Hobert Mills

The Hobart Mills shooting area is North of Truckee, You take Highway 89 heading toward Sierraville, it approximately 5 miles North on Highway 89. If you heading north and pass over a bridge and about 150 yards you will see a right hand turn. Take the right hand turn and you will be on Hobart Mills Road, continue and following on this road for approxitely 1.5 miles and the range will be on the left hand side. Right now the place is wet and I like to do it sometime in mid April 20 or May 27 at around 10am. Thanks for all the reply from you all.

They can close it down all they want, people will just shoot elsewhere in the national forest, they have literally no say in the matter. It's better that all the trash be kept in one area.

I will go argue with the rangers about it the next time I am up there.

Anyway, I'd be happy to help, but April will likely be too early, I would plan on early June, as snow and permafrost will make cleanup problematic.

FYI this is a very active shooting area, on the weekend it is very likely that people will be showing up to shoot while everyone is cleaning up.

After we clean this range up we should clean up Prosser range as well, last time I was there it was pretty messy.

If anyone has a dump trailer I think that would be ore appropriate given the amount of trash

I haven't been up that way too much in the last few years. But, I do shoot at Boca and Prosser when I'm up there. If I happen to be at the lake when you guys plan any cleanup, I'll try to make it.

I'd recommend both dates, incase the 1st date does not work (weather, etc.). I travel through Truckee on a regular bassis and do a fair share of my shooting at both Hobart & Bocca, and do not want to see either area shut down. I'm making plans to be available for both dates.


Maybe one of the local C3's could help organize this clean-up.

Good thought, can we stay with the two days that I had posted for April if wealth is permitting and start at 8:30 am or 9 am and if this don't works out I will update this post to show the new days. Most the shooter doesn뭪 show up until later. I did talk to the Truckee Ranger office and I don't want to quote the lady's name, but she is ok for me/us to use their dumpster to put the trash and recycle item in. Not sure where the Presser range is is located. Is the range along the old Reno road and Dog Valley Road to Presser Lake? We can schedule something for that too and I am willing to help.

I went this evening and did some cleanup in the form or raking all of the "things" there in to piles and I will be working more tomorrow. If anybody is available I would love if you showed up. I have been using a leaf rake to make piles and i will continue that tomorrow then shovel the piles in to some container which I have not quite figured out yet, if somebody that could come has a wheelbarrow that would be nice. We can then bag everything and leave it on the curb and when the garbage man drives by on tuesday he will grab anything that is sitting there. What I have done so far looks really nice and I'm surprised a how effective such a small amount of work is. Don't be overwhelmed by how messy the place is. Each of us really can make a big difference very easily.

Then we have some fun shooting with together overall is a very productivity day. Whoever those folk are. THANKS

That was me. Nice to meet you Viper 49.

I was out there again last week. Could use some cleanup. I carried a bag and some splintered boards away. I stop by on occasion and will cart off anything that is bagged.

Default Clean up anyone?

Hi guys,

I discovered this place today through word of mouth and while I couldn't stay to shoot or clean up, I thought I would scout it out. I pull up and there's a gentleman there raking and bagging. I stop to see what he knows and says he's been coming for a while and always tries to leave the place better than he found it. Very impressive. After I get home I start Googling this place and find this thread.

Not sure if there's many Calgunners near this place but I'm going to be getting out there this week to do a bit of shooting and clean up and thought I'd revive this thread.

If anyone else is interested, I'm also in for mid August for a Calguns shoot and clean up.

Interested as well depending on date, my 2 seater doesn't have much room to haul away stuff, but I will help with cleanup efforts.

It looked pretty clean a few days ago. Most the trash is raked up in piles at least.
