Hey everyone, I tried going by there to shoot last weekend on the 10th. It looks like they are mining the area again. Is there any poc, or location I can check for the status of the pit? I can't stand how crowded and dangerous the shooters are at triangle (had someone start shooting during a cease fire when I was checking a target there on more than one occasion)

Thanks!

If you’re looking for a safely run place to shoot in the area, check out Evergreen Sportsman’s Club. Only $10 for active duty military to shoot all day. Www.shootesc.org.

Why not just go past the upper pit on the C-line, you can find plenty of better and more private spots to go to.

The person that I contacted in the past was Phil Wolff (360-628-2391 & 360-902-1435). He was the manager of the Capitol Forest area at the time and might still be. He did say that there was a section on the DNR website https://www.dnr.wa.gov/Capitol that people can check to see if there is any mining activity going on but I have never seen anything as an update on this site about that pit. Usually I just call him and ask directly.
