The forum, “Public Land Target Shooters”, has been deleted due to lack of participation.

This forum was is to have been a place where target shooters can meet, communicate and collaborate on how to save their favorite places to shoot on public lands. It seems that those who signed on are only interested in lurking to hear of places to shoot and are not willing to participate in any conversations. Well if that’s all you want, you can find public places to shoot on the Trash No Land home page on the interactive map, but this was to be a place where we can talk about what’s going on and what we can do to make it better.

With all the thousands of places to shoot on public lands in Oregon and Washington, I would think most of you would be posting about what’s going on in your neck of the woods and asking for help or ideas to keep it open. But with over 95 people in this group, no one has posted anything related to stewardship except me. Yet when I visit various forest areas, I see lots of places that are trashed and it makes target shooters look real bad! I can’t organize cleanups in all forest areas, yet it needs to get done or we run the risk of loosing more good places to shoot. I had hoped some of you would step up and start something in your area. I was willing to help all I could.

So from here, if you would like to start a stewardship program in your favorite forest, send an email to:, and we’ll work that out.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may present.  My thanks to those who did participate!

Stewardship KEEPS it open!

Stewardship SAVES our places to shoot!
