Excerpt:Deputy Says… Shoot Here, But Not There
If you like target shooting but are not familiar with this area, it can be a bit confusing to figure out where to go. With a checkerboard of BLM, Forest Service, and private property in and around Marys Peak, it is especially important for OSU students who may have brought firearms or recently purchased a gun to find out where it is legal and safe to shoot. In an effort to reduce the number of good people getting pinched due to confusion or lack of proper information, Corporal “Big Al” Schermerhorn of the Benton County Sheriff’s Office decided to reach out to the community. His message is simple: know where you are and whose property you are on at all times and you should be A-OK.
