Shooting - This Order institutes new regulations and clarifies existing regulations governing target shooting on the Mt Hood National Forest in one document designed to better communicate safe and sustainable practices which mirror those implemented by other public land management agencies in Oregon. The order codifies into law target shooting best practices to prevent resource damage, increase safety, and reduce impacts overall.
While the existing general rules regarding recreational shooting remain in effect, the new regulations are specific and will require shooting enthusiasts to undertake their activity in a way that respects natural resources, promotes safety for all forest visitors, and makes popular shooting locations more enjoyable places to visit.
