Ask the ranger.

Q: I've heard that target shooting is allowed on state land in the Adirondacks. Is this true? If so, what rules must be followed?

A: Shooting targets on state land is permitted if: you do so in a safe manner; you do not damage trees; and you pick up used targets, spent casings, etc. Possessing and shooting at breakable targets--including, but not limited to, clay pigeons and glass containers--is prohibited on state lands. Unless legally engaged in the act of hunting, no person shall discharge firearms on state lands posted or designated as closed to target shooting.
