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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
