Need Some Practice?
If you're looking for a place to practice, all National Forest lands, including the Wallowa Whitman National Forest, generally allow recreational target shooting (unless specifically prohibited by a Forest Service Order). This video provides tips on safe shooting in the public forest, not the least of which is preventing wildfires from sparks hitting metal targets.
