In Ferndale you can shoot on the River bar but only is certain places that meet the buffer requirements from paved roads and dwellings. I believe DFW and the county
Both give out pamphlets on where you can shoot at and not.

I’ve taken my kids shooting in Lacks Creek area of 6 rivers national forest. It’s not to my liking, only because it’s a lot higher traffic than horse mountain and you can’t shoot as far.

PS: while I believe horse mountain is totally safe, I would make sure you keep a loaded pistol on your person all the time. There was a murder of someone shooting up there in the late 90’s or 2000 about, and I had a run in where two guys tried to rob my friend and I of our firearms (with a knife ��). This was a long time ago, same era around 00 or 01. I spend a lot of time up there and haven’t had any Problems since. It’s just remote so you need to be prepared to handle your own issues regarding personal safety (medical supplies, water, etc).
Buying a safe and sane firework is like paying a hooker for a hug. I do not see the appeal in it.
