Shooting Restriction Lifted

Fire danger levels are dropping due to the recent moisture and cooler temperatures. The Humboldt-Toiyable National Forest’s Carson Ranger District will lift the temporary shooting restriction on Oct. 1.

Hunters are allowed to hunt in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations.

“We want to thank the public for their willingness to avoid recreational shooting in the district during the hot, dry summer months,” said Carson District Ranger Irene Davidson. “I am happy to say there were no shooting-related fires started in the district once the restriction was put in place. This helped protect our natural resources, as well as surrounding communities.”

The Carson Ranger District encourages people to use safety and refrain from shooting during hot, dry and windy conditions and to have a shovel and water nearby to extinguish fires.

“I would also like to remind folks that just because the district got some moisture, it does not mean the fire danger has completely abated,” added Davidson. “We urge everyone to continue to use caution when recreating on public lands.”
