Shooting Ranges Close In Wisconsin

A couple of shooting ranges in Wisconsin, including one in Lafayette County are no longer open. A release from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says the shooting ranges at Yellowstone Wildlife Area near Fayette and the Columbia County Shooting Range in Poynette are closed due to public safety reasons and facilities’ degradation. DNR officials have determined that the backstops at both ranges were becoming degraded by excessive use. The press release goes on to say that the DNR will investigate how best to manage the design and use of the facilities safely. The ranges will be closed until further notice and most likely through the winter. They will only reopen if the DNR is confident in the safety of the design.
