New Shooting Park in Lincoln

Things are progressing quickly for the new shooting park and education center located at 44th & Superior in Lincoln. The building frame is up and the indoor firearm range is visible! Take a drive past the area to see for yourself.

The new facility will house our Hunter and Boater Ed programs, Hunter Outreach Programs and provide for a host of new shooting sports programs. The facility will have an indoor 32 lane archery range to 25 meters (complementing the existing outdoor field and target ranges), 10 lane firearm range (to 25 yards), classrooms, offices and is scheduled for completion in April of next year.

The new complex will allow for walk-in pay to shoot for general public along with a host of educational learn-to-shoot/hunt programs including full scale archery development programs, shooting sports programs and much more! With a Level 4 archery coach already on board, we plan to make this the mecca for archery coach training in Nebraska.

Lots of great things happening for hunters/shooters and stay tuned as I will update you on developments as they happen!
