Range Closures

The High Plains Shooting Range has been undergoing lead reclamation. The lead reclamation process involves excavating the berm walls and range floors, sifting the lead from the soils and then rebuilding the range.

Many of the berms were partially completed when this past week’s rains hit, which left several of them with up to 7 inches of standing water. Consequently, we are not able to move the heavy equipment around the range to complete the lead reclamation project as scheduled.

The rain we received this past weekend did not help matters. We hope to begin reopening berms as they are reconstructed throughout this coming week. As they become available to members, the website will be updated. As always, check the website before going to the range. Currently, as of 0700 May 15th all Shotgun fields are open to include the Archery field. Rifle berms (South 5,6, & 7) are closed. Pistol berms (North 1, 2, 3, & 4 and South 1,2 3, 4, & 8) are closed. We are very sorry for this inconvenience.
