So I have been watching videos to get informed on long range shooting and I see guys shooting what looks like mountains and valleys etc. Do these guys own this vast land? Is it government land? If so can you shoot on it if there are no No trespassing signs? How about if you buy a hunting license? I guess it would be very hard to find the owner to these vast lands if it's not the government's. I hate living in MD. I have minimum of 4 hours to get to anywhere remote enough to do LRS

Lots of land out west is public and BLM (Bureau of Land Management) land. Shooting in national forest land is legal in most areas, and in Colorado and Wyoming it transitions from plains to mountains fairly quickly. So seeing mountains in the background is pretty common. There are also massive ranches and pieces of private property that with permission can be used for long range shooting.

And make sure you get permission on the private land. They do watch, they do care, and most of them do prosecute.

Land access is one of the reasons I’m happy I moved out west. When I lived in Georgia it was hard to find anywhere to shoot other than a 100 yard range unless you knew someone with land. I live in Vegas now and I can drive in pretty much any direction and find wide open public land with plenty of mountains for a backstop. I’m pretty spoiled now. (But the wind can be ridiculous)
