Plan your outdoor adventure

Get ready for your outdoor adventure! Plan your trip to a WDFW wildlife area or water access area. WDFW actively manages more than 1 million acres of public land and 500+ water access areas throughout the state. 

Target shooting on WDFW-managed lands

WDFW strives to provide a positive recreational experience for all outdoor enthusiasts at our wildlife areas across the state. As the number of people recreating on public lands increases each year, it is important for all visitors to have an extra level of awareness. 

Know before you shoot! WDFW’s target shooting regulation changed earlier this year to increase public safety, prevent wildfires, and protect habitat. Review the rule and frequently asked questions
