I might be mistaken but I think target shooting is not allowed on most kinds of public land????

Perch is correct. Target and indiscriminate shooting is not allowed on most public land. I'm not sure about state forests, but it is definitely illegal on WMA's and WPA's, SNA's and state parks.

We used to target shoot in Sanddunes state forest in Zimmerman, but not sure if you can anymore.

No indiscriminate (aka target) shooting in any MN state forest including Sand Dunes State Forest.

Mr.FisherMan I don't think there is any public land open to target shooting in MN. Maybe some tax-forfeited lands? I would suggest finding someone with private land who would let you practice on their land in exchange for you letting them shoot some of your clays. I would help ya out if you were on the west side of town and bow season wasn't a week away.

Good Luck!

Can not in Sand Dunes that range was shut down and is now a horse camp what a joke-my hometown in South Dakota has a nice public range complete with benches all free to use.

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
