Tonto NF is now back open again - > http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/tonto/news/2010/100720a.shtml

BLM is still closed (as far as I can See) and ( YES GLOCKMONGER (But what if ya'll go to the private land part on table mesa has been open) but if you start a fire on private land and it moves to BLM land, "You are still responsible).

At least today you can shoot on Tonto land with no problem.

Well it looks like BLM Phoenix District is going to lift all fire restrictions on July 31, 2010. See it here -> http://www.publiclands.org/firenews/AZ.php.

There is nothing posted on the BLM site as of right now. So be carefuly out there.

Most of us would agree with you, although ranges do have their uses. To check on non range postings for the West valley, try these.

Welcome aboard!


edit; Watson road is a NO go, it's been posted for a couple years now.

the "reason" these areas are "closed" and "patrolled" is that the elite who own you are worried that you are "practicing" your long range techniques .... they need the sheeple dumbed down ...

Remember the average response time to a 911 call is over 21-30 minutes.
The average response time of a 357 magnum is 1400 FPS.

getting your QUOTE sig line in line with REALITY ...

Powerline Road, out in Vail is now close to being shut down.

The landowner has people running folks off and taking license numbers...apparently the continual mess left behind by shooters and off-roaders has forced the decision.

DAMN! [smilie=anim_banghead.gif]

Took my boys out today to do some plunking west of Lake Pleasant MM14 and it's closed now for DUST CONTROL. Gate is chained and locked. I was there a few weeks ago and it was still open. How can there be a dust problem all the way out there??????????????? Man it's getting hard to find a Desert place to shoot!!!!
