Note 1:  target practice is to be conducted in a formal manner on an accepted shooting range or on a NHSA Exco approved farm range.

Exclusion 1:  shooting of tin cans or box targets behind the dam wall is not perceived to constitute target practice as an appropriate dedicated activity, as only sport shooting on accepted ranges or on an Exco approved farm/private ranges are perceived to constitute sport shooting.
