Campers in National Forests Worried About Target Shooting
Campers in Montana's national forests are getting skittish as more sportsmen take advantage of rules that allow target shooting, even though they comply with the rules.
The rules bar target shooting 150 yards of a residence, a building, or campsite or developed recreation site, but for some campers, that's way too close.
Campers point to trees that have been shredded with bullets not far from group campsites.
According to the Great Falls Tribune , forest officials have no plans to change the rules and they are urging recreational shooters to remember that some areas are high-use camping areas with families, including children spending nights there.
