Emergency shooting closure in Payette County
This emergency shooting closure closes 5 acres of Public Land around the Wild West Fire Guard camp to all shooting of rifles, pistols, muzzle loaders, and shotguns. This is a year around closure. Shooting into or across the closure is prohibited. The closure boundaries will be posted. All law enforcement personnel or local, State or Federal officials are exempt from this closure while performing their official duties.
The legal description of the closure is: 5 acres on the west side of the quarter corner common to sections 11 and 16 in Township 6 North, Range 4 West, Boise Meridian, Payette County, Idaho.
Recent increased shooting activity around the camp from ground squirrel hunters and target shooters has created an unsafe situation. This shooting activity endangers the BLM Fire Fighters living and working in the camp. Recently, three bullet holes were found in the buildings in the camp.
This closure is effective when signed by the authorized officer and posted.
