Wanted to know if sultan basin road shooting Pits/locations are still around. Reason I'm asking is because my coworker was approached 3/3/19 by a Snohomish county sheriff. He said no one is aloud to shoot along sultan basin road, that this has been around for a while. But I have spent hours at several locations locations along sultan basin road and never had this issue before. IF anyone knows more info on if Sultan basin road is still available to shoot at please lmk :)

There is one deputy that has for years been making the rounds up there every once in a while and telling people it's off limits.

He KNOWS he is wrong. Has been told so, by his superiors. Does it anyway. Never gets a reprimand. (Except verbal.) What you going to do?

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

If he tells you you can't shoot there, don't shoot there.

As long as you have no other issues,
Keep shooting!
Have him write you a ticket and make him look stupid in court.

And when he gets shot, doing that?

Any cop that is off his rocker enough to be warning people not to shoot in an area that he knows is open to shooting, is off his rocker enough to shoot anyone who doesn't "respect his authoritay!" This cop IS the south park type... Never met him myself. But I have talked to three people now who are afraid to go up there and shoot. All describe the same guy. Same conversation. None of the three know each other. So I'm pretty confident of this without actually meeting him, myself.

If you really want to shoot there, and there is a chance he will come again, I would suggest that you get it in writing from the proper authority, that that area is open to shooting.

Then I would further suggest that you have at least half a dozen armed people there, with you, if he does show up.

Not to draw on him. But to keep him from drawing on you.

Things to take with you when shooting on public land:

1. A printed screen from the parcel viewer showing public ownership of the land. Up there it's all DNR I think. Maybe some WDFW. Don't think there's any FS land that far south/west.
2. If there are structures nearby, a printed screen from Google Maps with a distance line showing greater than 500ft to the nearest structure. Or a printed map showing that there are no structures nearby.
3. A printed map of DNR (or FS, or whatever) prohibited shooting areas.
4. A printed list of current restricted DNR (or FS, or whatever) areas/activities. Burn bans generally apply to target shooting too.
5. If the county publishes one (and I think Snohomish does), a printed map/list of prohibited shooting areas.
6. A print out of DNR's (or whatever agency owns the land) policy on target shooting.
7. Your Discover Pass, assuming your vehicle is parked on DNR land.

Arguing with a bad cop is generally not a good idea, especially when you have obvious access to firearms, but if he refuses to acknowledge legality after being shown the above paperwork, call the CLEO's office in his presence and put it on speaker phone. Assuming you have service. If not, drive to where you do and ask the CLEO's office to call you and leave a voice mail explaining legality, then go back and keep shooting.

It's also not a bad idea to invest in a body cam, but beware audio recording consent laws.
