The Board of Directors has
received some complaints/inquiries regarding the discharging of firearms in the
surrounding wilderness area. Also, vandalism by gun fire to items like road
signs and more critically, telephone relay posts has been reported. In response
the Board would like to remind all residents of the following;
"6. Discharge of
firearms is currently prohibited
on the Forest
except for the purpose
of hunting during the designated hunting season
as established by the California Department of
Fish and Game.
is only allowed within designated areas on the Forest."
"Hunting within 150 Yards of any occupied
dwelling house, resident, other building, any barn or outbuilding, road, developed
area campgrounds, trails, fire stations, any national forest building, across
any body of water, off-highway vehicle areas, and private property within the
boundary of the Forest"
If you desire additional
information please refer to link below to access the Cleveland National Forest
OR check with
the California Department of Fish and Game for current regulations regarding
the use of firearms on Federal Lands within the State of California
If you witness or experience
any dangerous activity please contact the US Forest Service Law Enforcement
Division at 1-619-557-5265.
Not only is this a safety
issue and a Fire Prevention issue, but no one wants to see our telephone
service knocked out as the result of someone's amusement or recreation. So,
please respect the law, your neighbors and the Wilderness!
