Just saw this.Is Rome too far?
Hey Syracuse! Look for state land...its all over the place. Go on google maps and look for the green areas.
Yes, it is legal to shoot airguns on state land as long as you follow the 500 foot rule. There are several large WMA's around Syracuse. Also, if this helps, Pathfinder fish and gun club is in Fulton, about 30 minutes north of Syracuse.
I should also mention that Pathfinders member orientation for new members is this Sunday at 2. they have a web site I believe.
