Wisconsin: Public Support Needed for Shooting Range in Sauk Prairie Recreation Area

Friday, October 12, 2012

Public Support Needed for Shooting Range in Sauk Prairie Recreation Area--A shooting range is one of many uses being considered for the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area, located in Sauk County, in the southwestern part of the state.  The 7,354-acre property was formerly the site of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant.  The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is developing a master plan for managing public use of 3,800 acres of this property and believes that a shooting range is compatible with other outdoor activities.  However, to make the range a reality, the Department needs to receive public support for this idea.  In addition, the Department is inviting suggestion as to what shooters would like to see in a range; i.e. rifle, trap, skeet, etc.  The Department is looking at this property not only as a site for a premier public shooting facility, but one that can accommodate hunter education and the "Learn to Hunt" programs.

Comments should be directed to:

Diane M. Brusoe
Wildlife and Fisheries Planner
Bureau of Facilities and Lands
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources


P.O. Box 7921
Madison, WI 53703

Remember, public comment is needed to demonstrate support for the development of a shooting range in the Sauk Prairie Recreation Area.  Public land is becoming increasingly hard to find for the development of new shooting facilities and an opportunity like this does not come along very often.  Please take a few minutes to submit comments in support of the shooting range by email or post.
