Welcome to the NEWLY designed Shiocton Rifle Range. There are several changes that happened this past summer due to the walking trail that is being placed to the south of the rifle range. See the new rules at shiocton.org in the parks department.
If you plan on visiting the range please be sure to check the website, follow us on Shiocton Rifle Range Facebook page and like us to keep updated. Any closures will be posted here and on Facebook.
Handgun range will be closed Wednesday November 12th from 11am-12:30pm
We will be closed starting November 21 at 4:22pm and will reopen on December 1st at 7am, for the 9 day gun hunting season.
This range is not the place to bring out your unwanted pumpkins. You will be cited $437.00 for shooting at one.
$5.00 fee requested for each shooter. This is needed to maintain and keep this facility operating for your use and enjoyment. All money placed in the locked boxes goes back into the range for improvements. No moneies from the village are spent for improvements to the range.
Recently we are running into the problems of people pulling the snow fence targets and placing them where they want them to be. This is not allowed!!!! Please do not move the targets. The targets are placed at areas in the range so that all rounds are impacting the back berm. This is happening on the 200 & 300 yard range.
Make sure if you are shooting at the target that is assigned to the table you are using. Example table 4 target #4.
Please remember not to shoot across the road on the 200/300/500 yard range. When doing so you will be shooting directly at the walking trail or hunters in the woods.
The Village of Shiocton has one of the few open to the public shooting ranges in the state. The range is fully within the Village limits and supported by donations. It is open from 7:00 a.m. to the ''official'' Shiocton sunset. The range consists of a 50 and 100 yard range, a 200/300/500 yard range (you can drive down with your trucks or cars), and handgun range. Shooting tables and stationary target stands are at each range. Paper targets and clothes pins are to be placed on the target stands by the shooters. No targets are to be placed between the tables and targets stands provided.
Occasionally the range will be reserved for special events and closed to the public. It will also be closed for maintenance and mowing though we try not to have all ranges to be closed at the same time.
We have tried to make the ranges as user friendly and safe as possible. It is up to the individual shooter to clean up their own mess and make sure things are ready for the next shooter. Doing this helps to ensure the range stays open to the public.
Donation boxes are set up at each range and donations are appreciated. All donations are put back into the range whether to buy material for targets, concrete pads, tables, flags, covered shelters, or to keep the ranges as safe as possible. OUR RANGE IS FUNDED SOLELY BY GRANTS AND YOUR DONATIONS!!!
Public Rifle & Archery Ranges are open to the public most of the year. The ranges may be closed from time to time for events at the park or due to maintenance.
There is also an archery range with multiple stations for different situations.
If you have any questions on the shooting ranges please call the Village of Shiocton at (920)986-3415 Monday - Friday between the hours of 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
NEW!!!! PLEASE be familiar with the new rules. No targets are to be placed between the tables and the green or orange target stands furnished by the Rifle Range. You will need to bring your own paper targets to place on the stands. The rules are posted on the website, in the wood box located near the donation box on the rifle range, and on the ranges in the parking lot labeled “Take One ”
The biggest change is you will not be allowed to bring in homemade or commercial bought targets. This includes spinners, exploding targets, cans, bottles, boxes, and fruit. Paper targets can be placed on the target stands, furnished by the range. Also the paper cannot hang off of the target frames. It is best to bring a clothespin or paperclip to hang the targets. Make sure you are cleaning up your targets and spent rounds.
Shooting times will end at the ''Official'' Shiocton sunset time. This can be found by searching Shiocton sunset set time on the internet. This will also be posted on a display board near the donation boxes.
No shotguns, AR 15's, or .223's on the handgun range.
While on the 200/300/500 yard range you must be shooting at the stationary targets provided. No placing targets on the ground or anywhere in between the steal target or Range targets that are furnished. Anything other will cause ricochets!!!
Trucks and cars are permitted to drive down the new road. ATV’s are not recommended. Please use the flag as directed. The flag is to be raised when you enter the range and the last person leaving the range will lower the flag. The flag should not be raised and lowered as you are checking your targets.
Clay targets & exploding targets are NOT allowed!!!
NO ELECTRONICS ALLOWED TO BE SHOT AT THE RANGE!!! no glass, plastic, aluminum cans, fruit, etc.
We are looking for donations to purchase shooting benches click here if interested
Be safe and enjoy.
