    Legal SHOOTING hours? Not hunting!

    Is there a regulation that any of you can point me to in the Canada Firearms Regs that shows the legal hours (if any) that you can discharge a rifle in butt-Fxxk nowhere? Someone asked me today if they can check their scope with a target outside of legal hunting hours. Iím picturing a deserted gravel pit beyond 400m from a highway on the way to an early morning hunt, with LED lights on a target at 100 yards type thing.
    If weíre not supposed to eat animals, how come theyíre made out of meat?

    It's fine, fire away at 3am if you'd like.

    Thanks guys. I know the hunting regs fine, just wasn’t sure if there was a “recreational” time limit.

    I know there isnt in Mexico as the AKs were going off plenty at 12:00 am on Jan 1...

    Hmmm. That’s annoying. I know Alberta’s hunting laws transfer to the firing of firearms all throughout the yearly hunting times. You can’t discharge a firearm regardless of purpose, past legal light.

    I tend end to agree with this. As we have some guys behind our home with a recreation property who party and shoot all though the night. It’s crazy.

    If one can’t see, I struggle to see how shooting in the dark can be deemed safe.

    My my opinion of course.

    I used to compete at a BR match which was held at night and ran all night long. This was in Alberta. GD
