How are firearm restriction areas created, and how do they differ from a no shooting zone?

Firearm restriction areas are established by the Fish and Wildlife Commission. See the Fire Restriction Area of the Big Game Hunting Seasons & Regulations pamphlet for more details about fire restriction areas within Washington State.

No shooting zones prohibit the discharge of a firearm or archery equipment and are established through local ordinance. Consult with your local sheriff or city police department for information on no shooting zones.
