“On a normal MTB ride in Capitol State Forest, WA, somebody target shooting was “unknowingly” firing across one of the most used trails in the forest. As soon as we realized how close the shots were, we heard at least two zip past just ahead of us seemingly at head level.”
Whether it’s nefarious persons planting nails in the middle of pristine singletrack, aggressive grizzly bears just off the trail, or a bunch of rednecks firing shots into the fog– mountain bikers are finding themselves in the crosshairs once again (lame pun intended).
Note: Before shooting targets, always have a backstop (natural or otherwise).
