Does anyone have or have knowledge of a place in or within one hours drive of the Southern Tier of NYS where we could shoot at least 600 yards. Formal range is not needed. Just need the distance.

Well 600 yards in this area is a bit of dilemma, I know 3 maybe 4 riffle ranges in the area, but none is offering 600 yards, however I'm using one with 500 yards option, also you can go to the state land to practice like Maple Hill, or Connecticut Hill
I'm happy with the one for 500 yards, this riffle range offering benches with shelter set to 50, 100, 200 and 300 yards, but 500 yards is a bit tricky I can only shoot it when no one is using the range, since bullet path is above short range benches, also 500 yards bench is unsheltered, but who needs benches, just put a rug and shoot from the ground
Another thought, just stop at Mike’s in Horseheads he will point you in the right direction, also he can get you anything you need for shooting

Ok you can target practice and Maple Hill got very nice setup for it, I always known people target practice there and duriring hunting season there are many hunters, whish there were less. I think its about 1000 yards maybe more. The new NY State law, which got adopted on May this year stated:
10. The DEC can now prohibit target practice in specific areas by posting.

You car read on this here:
http://newyorkoutdoors.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/new-dec-regulations-adopted-and-effective-may-13-2009/

Just to be sure here is another law from DEC and their Regional Office would have the answer. Horseheads Office(607) 739-0809

Public Lands

Many state lands are open for hunting and trapping during the appropriate seasons. For information on hunting and trapping opportunities and rules governing the use of state land, contact the DEC Regional Office for the county where you would like to hunt or trap. Wildlife staff can provide information about wildlife management areas (WMAs) and Cooperative Hunting Areas. Forestry staff and NYS Forest Rangers can provide details on state forest lands and the forest preserve. In some instances, written permission or permits are required to use state areas. These are available from DEC Regional Offices during normal business hours.

Call them they should answer, since we (the taxpayers) pay their salary.
