They'll catch you boys, you can run but the longer you try to hide the worst the penalties will become. You might just want to confess now, instead of getting a lien on your homes and every penny you make in your for your stupidity to last you the rest of your lives. It's just a matter of time. ......by the way, you might want to change your underwear. Being scared chitless is just a saying....

    I will believe it when they catch the people, sounds like anti gun rhetoric to me.

Yes a ricochet can cause a fire just be glancing off a hard rock and causing that spark that drops into the dry grass then boom your fire is lit and going. It happens every year.

          Responsible target shooting should be the goal. Using public land to shoot on is a privilege, not a right.

              We're just asking people to use caution where you can shoot. Don't get all hot and bothered about not being able to do it because you can. There's a lot at stake when people do foolish things.

                This is the reason that the Candy Rock/Tunnel muck site is so well suited to safe shooting. There is no vegetation growing in the impact area. It is the most fire safe shooting site on public ground in this area.

    A lead bullet glancing off a rock will not cause a spark. It doesn't happen every year at all!

Stupid is as Stupid Does

There are always going to be those who believe their actions, regardless of how reckless, won't cause an issue. Being older (more experience with consequences) helps but is not always a detirent.

One has to wonder if the culprits did not see they had started a fire and ran away instead of reporting it. That would mean taking responsibility though. People who do something illegal which hurts others don't usually fess up. Hopefully the one's who started this fire have a festering gut of guilt. If nothing else, I believe when one does something harmful, the universe balances out the scale. Something very bad will happen to these people if they don't come forward . . . The scale will be balanced one way or the other.

    Just some inbred, born and raised imbecile. "Uncle Dad tol me it was awrite with heem if I shoots my gun in the dri grass". Put the toothless idiot out of his misery. Or make him move to Valley Springs with the rest of his type.
