The nine tips are: Target shoot only on lands open to shooting. Use only appropriate targets, rather than trees and other natural objects. Only shoot where there is a good backstop. Avoid shooting at signs, kiosks, trash containers, buildings and other property, which is illegal. Be sure to pack out your trash, including food wrappings, shotgun shells, brass or steel cases, fragmented clay pigeons, and other targets. Do not shoot household appliances or other objects dumped in shooting areas, as that can lead the public to assume that shooters are the dumpers. Avoid shooting across roads, trails, waterways or into caves or rocky areas, because that's unsafe. Shoot away from developed recreation sites such as campgrounds, trailheads, parking areas and boat ramps. Travel on designated routes.
