The Barbour WMA Shooting Range will be closed Saturday November 7th for a Department Sponsored Learn to Hunt Workshop. Information on the workshops can be found here.
Since we are all spending more time isolated from others, outdoor recreation is more important than ever. When using a public shooting range, remember to maintain a consistent 6-foot distance from others. Doing so can help avoid the spread of COVID-19.

The Barbour WMA Shooting Range range provides shooting opportunities at distances up to 100 yards. A small concrete pad to shoot shotguns at clay targets is located to the south of the 25 yard pistol range. All ranges are wheelchair accessible and have concrete walkways for downrange access to the target lines. The 25 and 100 yard ranges are separated by an earthern berm to allow shooters to travel downrange independently on each range.
