5. Range Utilization Policy.

  • 5.1. Public Shooting. The pistol and rifle areas and the single ‘hand-throw’ public trap area of the Big Hollow Shooting Range normally will be open to the general public on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday during the times posted on the Big Hollow Range calendar. However, the facility will NOT be open unless there is one or more RSO’s present to supervise the public shooting activities. Additionally, at the direction of the Range Coordinator, certain events may take precedence over the public shooting, including hunter education shooting, and other special events. Finally, the facility may be closed for certain unexpected causes, such as fire, severe storms or ice, or other situations that may pose risks to the public, the RSO’s or range users.
  • 5.2. Hours of Operation and Scheduling. The normal public range times are as follows:
    • 5.2.1. Wednesdays 1300-1600 (during daylight savings 1600-1900).
    • 5.2.2. Saturday 0800-1600 (broken into 2 four-hour shifts).
    • 5.2.3. Sunday 1000-1400.
    • 5.2.4. These hours are subject to change based on volunteer availability. See the Range Calendar for details about which shifts have been signed up for.
    • 5.2.5. Tuesday and Thursday are generally reserved for law enforcement training. No groups will be scheduled during this time.
    • 5.2.6. Private groups (with the prior approval of the Range Coordinator) and RSOs can use the range on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and before and after public hours on public days. If you are interested in scheduling a private group (this includes an RSO with more than 2 guests) you need to fill out a Range Request Form (on the Website) at least 2 weeks prior to the event.
