    Hey Marty, It's a short route 114 miles round trip (due daylight restrictions) from Fayetteville to Turner Bend. We aren't leaving until 10:30 but it is weather dependent of course. Supposed to be around 40* by then. If ya wanna go send your email by pm to me. I think I have it but if you send it I will be sure to save it.

    Anyone here ridden into the Weedy Rough Mtn lookout tower site?

    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.

    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.

    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.)

    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. :rofl
