Target Shooting

Target shooting is a popular activity in the Tillamook State Forest.  Each year, hundreds of shooting enthusiasts come to try out new guns and improve their skill with favorite firearms.

Coming out to shoot in the Tillamook State Forest means keeping in mind that it is a busy place full of hustle and bustle both on the roads and among the trees.  Every day the forest sees multitudes of people engaged in dozens of activities including logging, road building, camping, OHV and non-motorized trail use. 

Please plan your shooting excursion carefully so that you can select a destination that will not endanger Forestry employees, contractors or other forest visitors or find you shooting into private property.  Use this blog and the Oregon Department of Forestry Recreation Website to help choose your shooting location by taking the time to learn about where roads, trails and recreation facilities are located.
