This petroglyph site is situated on the east flank of Badger Mountain, west of Alamo Nevada and is an archaeological district rich in prehistoric rock art, hunting sites, and campsites. Studies of the area have shown that it was used as far back as 6,000 years ago, but, most intensively visited during the past 3,000 years, the site provides evidence that small groups of related households visited the area to hunt, gather wild plants, and to create rock art. The diversity of the rock art found in this area is amazing. As a matter of fact, the Shooting Gallery contains one of the largest concentrations of bighorn sheep figures in southeastern Nevada.

On 06/27/2019 Jim Herring and I visited the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge and its Black Canyon Petroglyph Area. In addition, we drove the Old Buckhorne Road, sometimes labeled the Black Canyon Road, to the intersection of Alamo Canyon Road, in search of some petroglyphs. We stopped at the visitor center to gather some info, but it was closed. Click here for pictures and description of this trip ... Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge - 06/27/2019 Trip Notes.
