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 Upper Delta WMA Shooting Range range provides shooting opportunities at distances up to 100 yards. The facility is unique in that it requires the barrel of firearms to be inserted into a steel tube prior to discharging ammunition. The bullet travels through a 20-foot steel pipe and then downrange into the target and impact berm. A small concrete pad to shoot shotguns at clay targets is located to the south of the rifle range. The rifle range is wheelchair accessible and has a concrete walkway for downrange access to the target lines.
