  • Shooting sports on the forest

    Both state and federal laws apply on National Forest System lands, so you also need to check on the state laws and county ordinances which may apply to the area you will be visiting.  

    You cannot discharge a weapon within 150 yards of any structure/development or occupied area, within or into a cave, across or on a road or body of water, or in any manner that endangers a person.  Forest Service regulations require that you also comply with all State laws regarding the use of firearms while hunting.

    Leave No Trace and Tread Lightly on federal lands !
