If you'd get on your knees like a good boy, we wouldn't have that problem.

Howdy Alonzo,

its been awhile, hope you are doing well.

we used to shoot out on highway 16 in the national forest around lake wedington, there was a "range" out there for years that is shut down now, but not sure if its legal to go target shoot out there in the forest now.. I think it is? but I am certainly no expert.

the weedy rough mt tower site looks cool, might check that out soon.

If so, how's the road? What's there?

What I'm really looking for is a place near F`ville where I can do some casual shooting (plinking).
Any suggestions welcome.

Weedy Mtn area is neat, that was my last ride I took back on Dec 16 (had no FF take me up on it). http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20265933
I tried to go thru on Old Ridge Rd loop, but like most everything up there, it turns private. In fact, off of Sunset going up Weedy, the only way "out" is on Koyle Cemetery rd., but all the dead ends still were good riding and views. Definitely worth exploring. I did not take the dead end to lookout, lots of purple, but road not marked private at entrance. Definitely not travelled much. I think I was hearing banjos......

Hey, Matt.

How's it going man?

Yep. Doing well. I haven't been riding much lately. Too many other projects and/or too cold.
Yeah. I saw some old posts around the `net about the Wedington range but I'm not surprized that it's no longer available. It does, however, look like there's one off of Hwy 12 in the Hobbs State Forest. But that's not real convenient for me.

Some of the Ozark/Ouachita NF web sites mention that shooting is legal (with some restrictions) so I may give them a call. (Actually, there are several ranges in the Ouachita NF.)

I can always go up to Sturm's range but, hell, all I want to do is shoot some beer cans with my .22 (or some plastic jugs full of water with my .41 mag.)

When I was a kid growing up in Little Rock I would throw my .22 or my .410 over my shoulder, walk the 3 blocks to the rail road tracks and then walk down the tracks a couple or three miles out of the city limits and shoot/hunt all I wanted. Can you imagine what would would happen to a kid walking through LR with a gun over his shoulder today??? Things just ain't like they used to be (and,,, they never have been.)

Dang it

It's too much trouble to watch for icy patches and deer at the same time coming home. I either need a daytime job or retirement, whichever comes first.

Good ole days. Used to love spending the day just plinking and exploring back when I was a kid.

Hobbs State Park has a free 100 yd range, not sure if you can shoot cans and water jugs, but paper targets are fine.

Vulva's in the shop, Kathe has my truck, I'm on two wheels. Road should be ok by tomorrow. Temps gonna get back up to the mid 40's. All the slop should be gone.
I only had to worry about a coupla spots where melt off had run down across the road in a curve. But all was clear, I just rode nice and slow.(which is waaaay out of character for me)

I like banjo music... `cept when I'm out riding by myself (and, I know what you mean...eerie feeling... BTDT) I was riding once somewhere down South of Brannon Mtn and shortly after I passed a couple of guys in an old pickup stopped on the side of the road, the road turned into what looked like a dry creek bed (and very downhill too.) The `ole DR was levitating when it went back past that pickup and out of there.

But, sounds like it's worth checking out.

Thanks.
