Dispersed Shooting

Target shooting is allowed outside of designated shooting areas in most of the field office with the following rules:

  • All targets must have a natural backdrop (hillside).
  • Never shoot across roads or trails.
  • Shooting must occur at least 100 feet from any road or trail.
  • Clean up all shells/other trash.

Certain areas are designated as "No Shooting Zones."  Make sure you are not in one of these areas if you intend on dispersed target shooting.  Contact the Grand Junction Field Office for more information: 970-244-3000.
