MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR), in cooperation with the local Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) have partnered through volunteer efforts to reopen the C.W. Caywood Memorial Shooting Range on a limited basis before the 9-day gun deer season.

The range will be operating under supervision from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following dates only:

  • Oct. 24 – 25
  • Oct. 31 – Nov. 1
  • Nov. 7 – 8
  • Nov. 14 – 15

After Nov. 15, the range will continue to be closed until the appropriate engineering improvements have been completed.

Earlier this summer, the range was closed due to safety concerns. Engineering efforts are underway to improve range safety, but the improvements’ completion date is currently unknown.

For information on the C.W. Caywood Shooting Range and other ranges in the area or around the state, visit the DNR website here.
