FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: When is the range open?
A: Normal hours from April through November are Saturdays/Sundays 12-3, Wednesdays 4-dark (fall) or 5-8 (summer). Note that sometimes supervisors are not available, so the range does not open. The range is also open any time a supervisor opens it. You may also call 715-556-0823 to make an appointment to open the range.

Q: How do I become a certified Range Supervisor?
A: First, become a club member. Then watch the calendar and/or your e-mail for upcoming training sessions. Training sessions take 60-90 minutes. Range supervisors must be 18 years old, able to legally possess firearms, and willing to volunteer at least 8 hours/year during scheduled range hours.

Q: Are there benefits to becoming a certified Range Supervisor?
A: Range Supervisors are authorized to open the range during daylight hours Monday through Saturday, and from noon to dark on Sundays. You also get the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to keep the Boyceville range open to the public.

Q: What firearms are not permitted at the Boyceville range?
A: By County ordinance, Class III (including full auto) and .50 BMG firearms are not permitted at the Boyceville Rifle Range.

Q: What should I bring when I come to the range to do some shooting?
A: Bring hearing and eye protection, paper targets, a stapler or tape, and of course your firearms and ammunition. Target stands are available.

Q: What type of targets are permitted at the range?
A: We prefer paper-only, however we do permit clay pidgeons provided they are placed on target stands in a manner that keeps the target stands from being shot up. No targets (including clay pidgeons) are permitted on the ground.

Q: What are the “good neighbor” considerations related to the range?
A: The Boyceville range is somewhat unusual in that it is located within the Village limits of Boyceville. NWRGC currently has a very good relationship with Boyceville and most of its residents. We ask that all shooters respect the neighbors by retrieving all litter, targets, and debris. There is a housing development on the opposite side of range hill (aka “Anderson Hill”). To keep projectiles from “skipping” over the hill, we ask that all shooters elevate their targets so that projectiles impact the berms directly.

TARGETS SHOULD NEVER BE PLACED ON THE GROUND!! We also ask that you limit your rapid-fire, magazine- emptying activity in respect to those who live near the range. Do not exceed the speed limit on Range Rd (25mph) to keep the dust to a minimum for those who live on range rd.
