    Rules for shooting on Washington State Lands. As per Department of Natural Resources.

    Web link: http://apps.leg.wa.gov/wac/default.aspx?cite=332-52-145

    These are common rules, to us, reasonable and typical of an outdoor sportsman using good common sense.

    WAC 332-52-145

    Firearms and target shooting.
    (1) What is recreational target shooting? Recreational target shooting is the use of a firearm or bow and arrow on targets and the sighting in of rifles or other firearms on department-managed lands. The department regulates and enforces target shooting on department-managed lands.
    (a) The department may restrict target shooting for the reasons set forth in WAC 332-52-100.
    (b) Persons shall not target shoot carelessly, recklessly, or without regard for the safety of any person, or in a manner that endangers, or is likely to endanger, any person, pet, livestock, wildlife or property.
    (c) Persons shall not discharge tracer or incendiary ammunition or projectile devices on department-managed lands. For purposes of this subsection, "incendiary" means causing or designed to cause fires, such as certain substances or bombs. "Tracer ammunition" means a bullet, projectile, or shell that traces its own course in the air with a trail of smoke, chemical incandescence, or fire, so as to facilitate adjustment of the aim.
    (2) Does recreational target shooting include hunting? No. This section does not apply to hunting activities, which are subject to the rules and regulations administered by the Washington state department of fish and wildlife.
    (3) Where is target shooting permitted?
    (a) Persons may target shoot in:
    (i) Developed recreation facilities specifically designed for target shooting; or
    (ii) Areas with an unobstructed, earthen backstop capable of stopping all projectiles and debris in a safe manner.
    Persons shall not target shoot in any other location.
    (b) Persons shall not shoot within, from, along, across, or down roads or trails.
    (c) Persons shall not shoot on, at, across, along, down, from, or within five hundred feet, of:
    (i) Recreational facilities that are not specifically designed for target shooting;
    (ii) Residences;
    (iii) Businesses;
    (iv) Structures;
    (v) Other areas as restricted;
    (vi) Areas designated or posted as no shooting.
    (4) What may be used as a target?
    (a) Items that are commercially manufactured for the specific purpose of target shooting or similar targets privately manufactured by the person(s) engaging in target shooting that are consistent with this section.
    (b) Unauthorized targets include but are not limited to:
    (i) Natural features, except earthen berms or banks used as backstops for target shooting;
    (ii) Vegetation;
    (iii) Structures;
    (iv) Gates;
    (v) Vehicles;
    (vi) Signs;
    (vii) Other department improvements;
    (viii) Appliances;
    (ix) Furniture;
    (x) Glass;
    (xi) Privately owned or occupied structures;
    (xii) Pets, service animals or livestock;
    (xiii) Wildlife;
    (xiv) Explosive and incendiary items;
    (xv) Garbage of any kind.
    Persons shall not target shoot at unauthorized targets.
    (5) When is target shooting permitted? Unless otherwise posted, persons shall not target shoot one-half hour after sunset to one-half hour before sunrise.
    (6) Is possession of a loaded firearm in or on a motor vehicle permitted on department-managed lands? Persons shall not possess a loaded firearm in or on a motor vehicle, except as provided by state law.
    (7) Who is responsible for disposing of spent items resulting from target shooting? Persons who target shoot shall dispose of spent items and remove all shell casings, targets, ammunition packaging, or target fragments resulting from their activity, with the exception of biodegradable clay targets. Failure to remove any such debris is prohibited.
    (8) Any violation of this section is a misdemeanor except a violation of subsection (7) of this section is an infraction under chapter 7.84 RCW.

    I'll have to see how my back is doing around that time so might not be able to do physical labor so I might just be the camp cook or bottle washer or something like that. I do have some things I can bring like a 3 burner propane stove. ;)

    I have a flier for this event made up. Message me and I can send you a file by email. It looks a lot better than this, but this is the info it has on it. It's an 8 1/2 x 11 portrate paper, black and white, with 2 fliers on each page. You need to cut it in half to get 2 fliers per page. Has bold and centered, ect...

    Use it to hand out to Washington area gun shops, outdoor stores and work place bulletin boards.

    My how they grow in just a couple of years. (This was taken almost 2 years ago) Since this is my niece and her family I see them from time to time so it's fun to look back and see how much they have grown.

    Safeway, in Washougal, is going to help with a food donation. Cool! Now I've got to figure out how much hamburger and hot dogs to order for 40 people.

    Any experience ordering for an event like this?

    Was able to get a few of these handed out to businesses around Vancouver area (Sportsman's Warehouse, Bi-Mart Orchards, Ammo Depot, Sporting Systems, Fern Prairie Market and a couple more). Would like to spread around Battle Ground, Brush Prairie and Yacolt. Let me know if you can hand out a few. I'll send you the PDF file.

    Also added the QR code that links back to this thread...
