A year ago (only a few miles from my parents home) a man was killed and his guns stolen ...he was shooting at a "dump range" by himself. Seems this was the norm for him and the B. G. knew it. The man was found some time later. His car was there but his guns were gone. I don't know if this has ever been solved. All that to say yes I try to be very careful, but mostly I shoot on private land. Still...
