The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department announces that its shooting ranges at Buck Lake Conservation Camp and West Mountain Wildlife Management Area will have five open range days with range stewards for anyone interested in sighting in their rifles on selected dates beginning August 29.

Vermont members of Back Country Hunters and Anglers will be hosting and instructing open range days from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on September 12 at the Walter Cabell Range at Buck Lake Conservation Camp off Route 14 in Woodbury and September 26 at the West Mountain Range on the South America Pond Road in East Haven.

Vermont 4-H Shooting Sports will be hosting and instructing open range days from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. August 29 and September 18 at the Buck Lake Conservation Camp Range and September 4 at the West Mountain Range.
