We have a problem with it at an old shale pit in the Renslerville State Forest, people junking up the place shooting old TVs etc on state land.  Brass everywhere, garbage, you name it.

I wouldn’t doubt it. I’d be all for the regulations to forbid it on any state owned land. It’s also a safety hazard.

For better or worse, target shooting at this forest and other state forests will continue to be allowed.

The new regulations apply only to

  • All Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs)
  • Bog Brook Unique Area
  • Seward’s Island Unique Area
  • Junius Ponds Unique Area
  • Harwood Lake Multiple Use Area
  • Carlton Hill Multiple Use Area

It's been that way for a long time. Most state land didn't allow target shooting and those that did had specific rules, but a lot of people just didn't follow them. WMA's have never allowed target shooting that I remember, and you were never allowed open fires or camping on them.

Any .223's, 9MM, .380's or .22-250's??:D

I know places that has .223 and 9MM casings, they are piled up next to signs that say "No shooting past this point! You are within 500 feet of a house.". They're pretty rusty though. It's an WMA with no target shooting allowed.
