Recreational Target Shooting

You can target shoot on national forest lands unless a specific area has been closed to the activity because it jeopardizes public safety. Information about closures is available at each district office. When target shooting, Forest Service regulations prohibit discharging a firearm:

  1. In or within 150 yards of a residence, building, campsite, developed recreation site or occupied area,
  2. Across or on roads or bodies of water, or where people or property are exposed to injury or damage,
  3. Into a cave,
  4. Causing resource damage; don’t shoot trees, rocks, stumps, non-game animals.

Violation of these prohibitions is punishable by a fine of not more than $5,000 for an individual or $10,000 for an organization, or imprisonment for not more than six months, or both (16 U.S.C. 551, 18 U.S.C. 3559 and 3571).
