Okay...maybe you need more info than that. hasingtoo far out into the sticks and I was wondering if anyone knew the legalities of shooting on your own land? Obviously keeping the safety of the neighbors in mind.

I'm purusing the RCWs...but I figured I would throw it out in case anyone had looked into this before.

I can not speak of it for your state but for the most part as long as you are not in city limits you can shoot all day. I lived in a subdivison and did not have much land but still shot out in my back yard from time to time mostly just to piss off people

Yeah, it depends. Like in Snohomish county no shooting west of Hwy 9.
