Are there any upcoming Hunter Safety Courses????
Happy New Year from National Outdoor Writer John Simeone, Adventure Sports Outdoors Magazine. ASOmagazine.com always on page 66 and a free read with a click. Woodworth Shooting range is where I test and evaluate equipment from Henry Repeating Arms, Lehigh Defense LLC (ammunition company), Underwood ammo, Starline Brass, Skinner Sights, Vortex, and Leatherwood optics. and others. This goes without saying that my articles directly effect over a million readers. Those are the core shooters and hunters that need to know about performance. Woodworth Shooting Range must be supported and must never close, it is where the Hawk Eye of the American Rifleman is developed through proper and safe practice. Pass it on.
anyone know what the January schedule is looking like?
It looks like State cut backs are about to effect Woodworth Shooting Range. This beloved recreation area is centrally located to be the epicenter for just about every outdoor activity and education subject. The grounds are kept well and the range masters are helpful and keep the place safe. Losing the range masters is just plain asking for trouble. As a National Outdoor Writer I can tell you from experience where the idea stems from. I know I will be preaching to the Choir, but its time to act wisely as Anti-Hunters, infiltrate our political system. Don't let it happen it only takes a moment to realize activities such as National Hunting and Fishing Day are the great first learning experience for the next generation. Of course the Anti-Hunting people are dead set against this. The first thing you will see is over regulation in their special way to make you miserable. Next you will see a deterioration of the grounds, while fees will be charged for everything. Many will just plain quit and that's what they want. Pass it on.
Nice place to relax and shoot
Will shotgun be open Sunday afternoon? 9/23/18
Visited this facility a few weeks ago...very impressive. The ranges are very well kept and organized. The staff was very friendly, ready to teach/advise (especially on the s***t range) which was great since my shooting skills were rusty! We will be back .
Y'all Open this Week?
About how much and do you have ppl that can help you? Do you offer any classes to learn rules,etc. ?
