Idaho Lawmaker Proposes Limits on Exploding Targets

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho lawmaker is hoping to limit use of exploding targets on public lands while allowing shooters on private lands more freedom. Exploding targets, which emit a puff of smoke when struck to let shooters know their bullet has found its mark even at long range, have started several Idaho wildfires in recent years during the bone-dry Idaho summers. The proposal, introduced Wednesday in the House Resources and Conservation Committee by Rep. Ed Morse R-Hayden, would ban use of the targets on public lands during fire season. But shooters on private land could still use them with approval from local fire officials. The targets would also be allowed at approved shooting ranges. The committee voted to consider the proposal before sending it to the full House for a vote.
