I think a resolution will be made tomorrow, but if the government were to shutdown will we be able to continue to use BLM land and such for shooting? Just wondering as the list I saw showed BLM and USFS agents as nonessential, not that I agree.

The LEO's are typically considered essential. Regular Foresters, likely will not.

Sure you can as long as the gate isn't locked. However it is my understanding that LE will not be affected by a shutdown.
