I was wondering what in the world you would be doing almost in Idaho, when you are answering a question about shooting in Davis County. Just so you know I have topos for the entire US on my computer, but like most normal people I always find locations in degrees and decimal degrees. I had to temporarily change my preferences to allow degrees, min. and sec. so that I could find the spot. In all that confusion I entered the wrong North coordinate. I have fixed my error.apollosmith said:You're off by one degree of latitude. This puts you in the middle of a field in Cache Valley. You can probably shoot there, but some farmer will probably run you off. It should be 40Â°N and this map shows 41Â°N.Tarzan1888 said:Here is a map of the area. The red circle shows the center of the GPS coordinates.
Interestingly, there is a good place to shoot just a few miles from this point, above Richmond.
Drive your Cadillac up there if you want.Bflamante said:Thanks for marking the map. The coordinates show that it is off of skyline drive. Is skyline accessible to 4x4 vehicles or only quads? Can I drive my truck up there without getting in trouble with the federalies? Also, it this area acceptable for camping overnight? Fire restrictions?
Darn, the cats out of the bag. This is my place to shoot. 5 minutes from my house. I was hoping it would stay Richmonds little secret. Seems like there are more and more out-of-towners (anyone that doesn't live in Richmond qualifies) up there shooting all the time. Its a great spot to shoot. So anyway here are the directions:Jeff Johnson said:
I would like to add one more condition......Please DON"T take any junk there and PLEASE do pick up targets etc. so that the place looks as good when you leave as it did when you came.....Be a Good Scout.PW said:
Tarzan, have you shot at this range before?Tarzan1888 said:I would like to add one more condition......Please DON"T take any junk there and PLEASE do pick up targets etc. so that the place looks as good when you leave as it did when you came.....Be a Good Scout.PW said:

I've gone up that red dirt road before, it just loops around at the top, real short, and puts you back on the flats, you would need a jeep, atv or truck with a lift to go on it. I've almost been on every trail up there is lots of places to shoot. I really really donâ€™t recommend shooting from the road, there is a trail below, its really nice to hike on. You get on it from the spot where the pavement meets the gravel road at the bottom at that little parking spot and take the trail south east, it takes you to a water fall.scuba_steve said:I went there today and shot a few rounds. Seems like there are a few places to shoot on the way up there. I even saw a place where someone was shooting skeet from the road. :shock: I too, shot a few rounds there on the way down, but I was more careful. Thanks for the info., I had a lot of fun exploring the trails.
So have you gone up the hill that you shoot into, the red dirt one?
