The Florence Trap Shooting Range has been closed all year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But, the Winnebago County Conservation Board has decided to open it up once again for public shooting. The range will open for the first time this year on Wednesday, July 29th, and will continue to be open once a week through August. Depending upon interest and the status of the virus, it may also continue to be open into the Fall.
The upcoming public shooting dates for the trap range are all on Wednesdays: July 29th, August 5th, August 12th, August 19th, and August 26th. Times each day will be from 5:00-7:00 PM. The cost to shoot at the range will still be $3 for 25 targets. If there is inclement weather, shooting will have to be canceled and that announcement will be posted on our web site (www.winnebagoccb.com), our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed. It will also run on KIOW Radio (FM 107.3).
Shooters are reminded that they will need to bring their own gun, ammunition, and eye and ear protection. All releases are voice-activated and all shooting will be supervised by a certified Range Safety Officer.
