Just a thought guys, we have fewer and fewer places to shoot in this area, and listing them online doesn't help us keep them open. I'm all for introducing a new guy to shooting areas, but would rather bring them along or at least keep the conversation private.

Not that we have something to hide, but too many of these places get overrun by shooters who just don't care enough to shoot carefully and not trash the place.
My 2 cents fwiw.

Best thing to do to keep shooting areas open and possibly get more opened up is to get involved in these cleanups. The more people who sign in on the volunteer sheets the more the DNR,Forest service, fish and game can see we're serious about our recreation and it also helps get them get grant money To keep these places open.

Agree 100%, for the areas where we do cleanups. We don't do that (as a group) for most of these small areas though. I've often hauled off trash from my favorite shooting spots, only to find even more trash there next time.

For every person here that asks about shooting spots, theres probably more than a hundred people who use that same spot that disrespect it.

Certainly, so why advertise it's location online for even more of those people? It's not the people asking who are likely the problem, but there are thousands of others who read what is posted here. I see this topic isn't local to you; would you prefer to list your favorite local spot online? I'm not saying don't tell new shooters where to go, just keep the details in PM's or in person.
