Fireworks of any type and exploding targets are prohibited on National Forest lands under Federal Law. Some exceptions for fireworks may occur, but only under special use permit, at the discretion of land managers and in strict accordance with fire prevention regulations. The prohibition of exploding targets on National Forest lands is not intended to deter the sport of target shooting. The prohibition is directed at concerns over the potential for fire ignition associated with the use of exploding targets on public lands. The Forest Service recognizes hunting and safe target shooting as a valid use of National Forest System lands.
