  • Monday – Closed

“This is a great time of the year to get out to the range and sharpen your skills for hunting season,” said Marty Hererra range manager for the facility. “Whether you’re sighting in your .22 for small game season or making sure you’re on target for that late season elk hunt, the main range offers the accommodations to set your sights.”

For shotgun shooters, Hererra adds, “Upland hunters can hone their wingshooting skills at the Clay Target Center on the sporting clays course or try our newest game: 5-stand. It’s fantastic.”
