    Need a new shooting spot.

    So we used to go shooting in hungry valley off of chickadee, but due to recent land changes, I need a new place to go. I got a few people that want to go this Saturday, but not sure of a good spot anymore.

    Anyone want to let me know where they go near north Reno? Or pm if you don't want your secret spot out there.

    2wd accessible is a plus, but looking for anything though.

    There was a few good looking spots right up north of Cold Springs on highway 293. Road is rough but passable by 2 wheel drive. I have not shot there but I saw a few groups out there on Mother's Day.

    Any other suggestions? I find it hard to believe that no one here on RenoGunsN4x4.com has a place they go that is somewhat close.

    I know there are areas out at the mine locations north on pyramid hwy that are a little bit closer than up past cold springs, plus I've been there before also. But, still hoping for somewhere a little closer.

    Your old shooting spot was my old shooting spot, so it seems like you and me are both looking for the same thing .

    I know my buddy shoots out east of Damonte Ranch, but if your in the north that might be just as far.

    North up Red Rock Rd has some decent spots, but you gotta pick a good backdrop because there are a lot of dispersed homesteads out that way.

    I've gone to a few spots on the opposite side of Pyramid Hwy across from the Washoe County range without issue as well.

    I haven't gotten out nearly as much as I used to since the arrival of my first born. My go-to spots were all in the new reservation lands off Eagle Canyon.
    Only wheeled Kia Sorento in Nevada on 31's.

    I'll have to go with you some time if you don't mind showing me some spots near the washoe county range. My new place will be pretty close to there

    Also, the firearms discharge map is updated to reflect the Hungry Valley Colony boundaries.

    Wherever you go, wear jeans, and bring a couple gallons of water and a shovel. Already been a couple fires the past few weeks, and I expect after the past winter, the cheat grass is going to be worse than last year.
