    Default outdoor shooting near onondaga county

    I want to take my son out to teach him the basics of shooting, safety etc. just with a 22 single shot....

    I am looking for a legal place to go where I will not be breaking any laws etc. - but not a private range....just outside.

    Anyone have any ideas for anyplace in/near onondaga county? I don't feel like getting harrased with all the dust up at the moment....

    Thanks for any ideas anyone has....

    I've heard the state land off Sixty Road in Van Buren is not posted restricted and is therefor shooter friendly, but have not investigated it myself. Quick check of the DEC website shows it is relatively isolated and should be safe to shoot. I have a day off next week and was planning on scoping the area out. I will let everyone know what I find, unless someone already knows the latest and can share....

    I've shot at the Three Rivers Wildlife Management area in Baldwinsville (the one mentioned on Sixty Road). It's fine to shoot there. Never had any problems.

    Just use common sense, safety rules, etc. Clean up after yourself when you're done (police your brass, etc...) and for the most part no one should bother you.

    I usually go in the northern most gate on the east side on Sixty Road if it's open and take the road almost to the end. Some natural berms in that area.

    Theres a good location at Three Rivers if you park at the intersection between sixty road and kellogg road in the small parking lot. Follow the path southwest into the woods and continue west until you see a narrow clearing lane heading north to south. Turn south and fire that way. Theres a berm and area that looks like people shoot alot towards the north, but on the other side of it is a road. Please don't shoot that way. Wear long pants tucked into boots because I received three ticks when I went last fall.

    I used to shoot out in the three rivers/Sixty rd. area when I was a kid. There used to be a gravel pit up the road from Kellog rd. on Sixty rd.on the right side of the road. You all would be much better served now a days by joining a local club like Baldwinsville R&G or Camillus R&G.
    Yes it is still legal to shoot out at the Three rivers area but in todays climate and with the weather turning nicer I would be VERY careful. A lot of people from the Radisson area walk their dogs and such out there and most are unfriendly to somebody with firearms. I have even been verbally insulted while bird hunting out there during the season. There are a couple of places on Kellog rd. where you can shoot but, I've seen people out and about in the pines on nice days on both sides of the road there.

    Just my 2 cents.
