I know of the 1,000 yard one down in Fairview acrOSS from the mine entrance. I think that's the one agentcooper is talking about. I think you have to be a member though.

That is correct. Their dues are very reasonable. The range is closed during deer season also. This is because the property is listed as a wildlife sanctuary and to ensure that no one jeopardizes that classification. (It allows the taxes to be affordable to keep the doors open.) I can't believe how adjusted the deer and turkey are to human contact and shooting. It really makes for a fun spring day to go shooting and watch a couple fawns monkey around with each other with no regard to the gunfire nearby.

Re: Anyone from pa

Hello All,
Hey its nice to see someone that close! I hunt a few different places in the particular area. Have you lived in altoona for a while? Possibly we may know each other! I assume you hunt long range or are getting into it, either way it's nice to meet and possibly find someone with the same interests. How far into the game are you? Gun, optics, loads ?

Hard Times caused me to recently have to sell my rifle, I'm in the process of building a new one, and working loads up. Rem 700 7mm mag pushing hopefully 168 vld with Imr 7828.
Anyhow nice speaking to ya. Looking forward to hearing from ya!
Dave
