Target shooting is a recreational activity enjoyed by many Oregonian. While shooting activity is permitted on state forestlands, ODF does not maintain any designated shooting areas. For more specific information about recreation on the Tillamook State Forest, visit the Tillamook State Forest blog.
Please select your shooting area with care and follow state regulations, which are enforced by local law enforcement. Target shooters are also encouraged to reduce the risk of wildfire, by only shooting into a backstop of mineral soil and having the required fire extinguisher (or shovel and water) ready at hand. After shooting, be sure to check the target area for any signs of fire.
