Close Place to Shoot My Rifle

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I was just wondering if there was a place close to the area where I could run out and fire off a few shells. I live in Fargo and dont want to run all the way back to my house near Fergus Falls. Hitman, I know you patrol the Hawley neck of the woods, anything of that sort around there? Thanks for any help in advance.

2 options around Fargo that I know of.

1. Horace Shooting Park.

2. Casselton

Your best bet is Horace, it is close and convienient. I just sighted in there last week. Bring your own targets and 5 bucks to put in the box before you enter. To get there take 94 West to the Kindred exit, just aways beyond W Fargo take a left(South)at top of ramp. Drive ~7 miles (you will see some electrical power equipment on left next to the road on the north side of the turn you will take) Take left (East) there (dirt road). Drive about a mile look for sign on left for shooting park, go past house/construction and take left. Good luck and good hunting, I was just out in central MN and they seem to be moving a lot laugh.gif

Thanks for the info guys, I called yesterday but the number said it was disconnected or temporarily unavailable. Can a guy just go out there and shoot anytime? I have heard that it only opens around 3 or 4pm? I might head over there this afternoon.

Yeah man, thats why I gave you those detailed directions, I wasn't able to reach them either. I'm not sure on hours, but just drop in at 3 or 4 and the gate will be open, just gotta drop the money in the box, the couple times I have been there the shop hasen't been open, but as long as the gates open the range is. I'm sure you wont be the only one ND still has a week before opener. I would get there early if possible. Hopefully that answers your questions, don't forget targets! Good shootin.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
