What are the regulations on shooting in Placer County?

The county does not regulate shooting on private property as long as you do the following:

  • You are in the unincorporated area of the county
  • You are shooting in a safe manner
  • You are shooting on your property, and the rounds stop on your property in a safe backstop
  • You may not shoot across another person’s property, road, easement, fence line etc
  • If you are shooting on someone else’s property, that property owner must accompany the shooter or you must have their written permission

The fish and game rule of shooting with 300 feet of any dwelling only applies to hunting, it has no bearing on target shooting. Contact the Sheriff's Office for more information.
