Put those firearms back in the safe, folks! Target shooting is now prohibited in Mt. Hood National Forest, until we get past this extreme/unusual fire potential situation.
Of course, we’re not surprised, right?!!!. I’m sure most of us have chosen not to shoot in this extreme weather condition, because of the extra potential for wildfires.
The order to prohibit shooting has been signed (Sept 4th) and is currently in force. The official announcements will be publicized real soon. They are currently enforcing this order and are preparing to post signs at primary shooting locations about the closure.
So please, share this info with fellow shooters and don’t go! It’s not worth it!
Thank you all for your understanding and patients!
