News from CSKT Division of Fire

The CS&KT Division of Fire reminds the public to be safe when hunting and target shooting by being aware of dry grasses and wildfire safety.

Hunters or target shooters can accidentally spark a wildfire. Follow these simple guidelines:

- Avoid shooting into rocks or dry grass.

- Bring a bucket of water and an old blanket to put out a fire.

- Place your targets on dirt or gravel, away from grass.

- Don’t shoot trash like old TVs or other appliances.

- Don’t shoot with steel core ammo.

- Exploding targets, incendiary ammo and tracer ammo are illegal on public lands.

For more information call the Division of Fire at 406-676-2550.
