Range Procedures

Upon arriving at the range, a shooter should go into the shooting shed, find an unused shooting position, and leave something at the position to indicate it is in use. He should then drive to the 200 or 300 yard target pit using the access road to the right of the shooting shed. He then can attach his target(s) to the target holder corresponding to the shooting position he has selected and raise the target holder all the way up. Note that eye and ear protection is required while in the shooting pit.  When finished shooting, the shooter should remove his target(s) and secure the target holder in the down position.

Cease fires

This range does not typically observe ceasefires. Targets are placed on target holders which are raised from pits while the range is hot. Target pits are access by a road that goes around the west end of the shooting shed. When a cease-fire is called, it is indicated by placing a yellow flag downrange.

Hours

Shooting hours are from 8AM – Sunset.  The range is closed any time the 600 yard range is in use.
