2. Organization

  • 2.1. Organizational Chart. The basic chain of command is set out on Appendix A. For the active list of contacts in each position please refer to the contact page of the Website. Please use it for communication, questions, issues, training, etc.
  • 2.2. Ownership and Organization. The Big Hollow facility is comprised of the rifle range, the pistol range, a hand-throw shotgun range, and the CONEX and shed facility. The facility is owned by the Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) as part of its mission to provide hunter education and shooting ranges. The DWR provides the oversight responsibility for the Big Hollow facility, the funding, and the operating budget. Range Safety Officers (RSO’s) are citizen volunteers acting under designation and authority by the DWR, but administered on a day to day basis by the Range Coordinator through the Team Leaders.
  • 2.3. The funding and operating budget is derived from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses by the DWR, and supplemented by Federal Pittman Robertson Act funds – from the 11% excise taxes paid by sportsmen on the sale of hunting equipment and ammunition. Under the current arrangement with the DWR, no individual or group will be charged directly for use of the range; nor should any individual or group charge for any group participation, other than cost reimbursement for the cost of targets and other supplies furnished for those groups. If compensation is required it will be in the form of donations of supplies and/or services. The decision of compensation will be made jointly by the Range Coordinator and the DWR Representative.
  • 2.4. The Big Hollow facility is separate and apart from the Heber Valley Gun Club. The Heber Valley Gun Club operates the adjacent shotgun facility as a non-profit corporation under a lease arrangement with the DWR. It has a separate corporate structure, governance and management structure but has no oversight authority over the Big Hollow facility. RSO’s that volunteer for the Big Hollow facility are not covered by the governance, or insurance, of the Heber Valley Gun club.
  • 2.5 To coordinate local needs and usage, the DWR with the input of the Range Leadership, and when needed a representative from Wasatch County will oversee the operation of the Big Hollow Shooting Range.
