Current Target Shooting Planning Efforts: none
Some areas and access routes have been damaged by the 2013 Flood. Please see the latest closure order and information at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/arp/targetshooting
Remember to follow all shooting regulations and restrictions, and use only approved targets. On the ARP approved targets are: cardboard targets, paper targets, manufactured metallic targets (metal targets specifically designed for firearms), or manufactured thrown-type clay targets (clay pigeons). Please note: exploding targets are not permitted.
Tracer bullets have been identified as a cause of a fire on the Pawnee National Grassland (see news release
). Tracer bullets are illegal on National Forest System lands. Use only approved targets with a safe backstop. Remember a safe backstop is one that will stop a bullet. Make sure not to attach your targets on trees, log decks, slash piles, fences, water tanks, or other improvements.
