Shooting spots up Carmi

Shooting spots up Carmi

Postby ToddT » Apr 17th, 2015, 8:25 am

Hey wondering if anyone here knows of any good shooting spots around Penticton? I know of a few but if there is a spot that has 100-200 yards of flat ground with a backdrop that would be perfect. There has to be something!

Is that safe? I mean, people go hiking up Carmi all the time and Id be kinda spooked if I was hiking and then started hearing someone shooting. Wouldn't it be safer to just go to the shooting range?

Anything is safe as long as you follow the rules. People shoot up there all of the time.
I would suggest hiking in the marked "no shooting" area if you are concerned about it. But be careful, because there are idiots that shoot in those areas too.

Thanks Rwede. I was thinking about joing the Oliver one. Is Summerland any better?

That's kind of what I'm worried about. I've never seen areas marked No Shooting, other than private property. But if some people are shooting in areas that are marked No Shooting, that might be a problem.

Just put on an orange vest or hat so the shooters can see you.

As stated previously, just follow the rules. Problem up Carmi is that there is a small percentage of people who don't know the rules and do not realize that everything up to the cattle guard at the Lost Moose turnoff is private property. So in order to follow the rules, one must be one mile east of that point in order to legally discharge a firearm.
While it may look like bush, and by default an assumption of being Crown Land, it is not. There are homes there that cannot necessarily be seen from the road. There are people there, their children, pets, and livestock.
Responsible gun owners do not concern me. What does concern me is the weekend rednecks with a cpl of quads, a belly full of beer, firearms, and a complete disregard to where they are and who else might be in the vicinity.
And I personally know people who have to put up with these rednecks every summer. And for some reason, John Law cannot get there in time to catch them.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

I was in the Garnet Trails last weekend and found about 50 shotgun shells. It bugs me that people shoot there. It's just so ignorant.
There is a pretty easy to identify gravel pit about a mile up from Lost Moose that is generally regarded as the first "shooting spot" so to speak. Anywhere from there on should be good, and if you are hiking past that point you are already a survivalist so you shouldn't be afraid of a few rednecks.

Agree with Todt, if you do go up there shooting, pick up your casings, don't leave a bunch of garbage behind. Respect the bush!

The grouse are plentiful lol. No turkeys though man. I really want to get one but they are out of season for everywhere but 8-9 and I'm telling you it will be super tough to find one here.

Another hunting season and another mess in the woods. Shotgun casings and empty shells littered everywhere. Pigs. Up Bartley road last weekend a gut bag and skin dumped In the middle of the road less than a km from local rural homes. Nice. Shooters and hunters paint a very clear picture of what kind of people they are. Ya ya one bad apple. Seems like the whole crop is *bleep*.

lol while I don't agree with the location of the gutpile or the shell casings, you sir are above all, likely a hypocrite.
