MARENGO PUBLIC SHOOTING RANGE OPENS SEPT. 4
LINDEN, Ala. -- The Marengo Public Shooting Range, a joint effort of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources' Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division and the Marengo County Commission, will open Sept. 4 with a ceremonial "first shot" at 10 a.m.
|The Marengo County Public Shooting Range offers a covered shooting line with a 25-yard pistol and rifle range, 100-yard rifle range and a shotgun area.|
Located at 17366 County Road 44 in Linden, the range includes a covered shooting line with a 25-yard pistol and rifle range, 100-yard rifle range and a shotgun area. The range will be open seven days a week during daylight hours only. Shooting range users who are Alabama residents between the ages of 16 and 64 must possess a valid hunting license or a wildlife heritage license. State regulations require shooters to use a paper target attached to a target frame at 25 or 100 yards.
The Marengo Public Shooting Range is one of 11 operated by the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division. With the exception of the Etowah and Marengo ranges, all are on Wildlife Management Areas throughout the state.
"We are very happy that another shooting facility is now available to the public," said Conservation Commissioner Barnett Lawley. "This is one opening at a great time. It can be used by people who need to sight in their rifles and get a little practice before hunting season."
