A bit off of the beaten path, but another favorite time of the year is coming up. Anyone know of a west metro, indoor/outdoor archery range. any kind of a target to shoot at would be great, almost any location as well. Good luck fishing

The one in Eden Prairie is excellent. It's right across from Flying cloud. Has a roof and layered targets.

I know of 2. One in osseo and one up by anoka. The one in osseo is on the north side of 81 just west of the high school, I've never shot there however. It's an indoor. There is a very nice outdoor with 3D target range up by Anoka off of Hanson just north of the anoka "main street". Just turn right by the compost if your headed north on Hanson.

You're right, the one in eden prairie is a nice one, kinda small though. However, last night i went down there and couldn't use it because there was a kids night there, so a guy refered me to a new one in shakopee. outdoors, lots of room 3 targets each at 20,30,40 yards, and the locals say big plans in the future, possibly targets out to 90 yards. On the NW corner of the 101 bridge south of 212 in shakopee. Unfortunately for me it is a 23 mile drive, but, lots's of room and it was free, and close to the Lions Tap.

The Gander Mountain in Lakeville has one, not sure if the one in E.P., or elsewhere do, though.

That is helpful news about the Eden Prarie range and the Shakopee range. Someone said there is one in Chaska, anyone know where? Also would like to know about any rifle ranges in the area. I would like to shoot a muzzleloader out to 100 or 150 yards.

The range in Chaska is off County Rd 110 across from the VFW. You have to drive into the parking lot across the road from it as it is not visible from he road. There are 20,30,40 yrd targets. Also try cabin fever in victoria, they have nice indoor range.

I just went to the EP Gander yesterday to shoot, their archery range (if you can even call it that) is pretty lame. You have to go through the Lodge to get to it and it's just a 3 lane at most wide range. They basically use it as storage so it's cluttered with treestands and boxes. Wouldn't recommend going there. I've been meaning to try out that city range at Staring park or the one down by Shakopee.

Any east metro recommendations/locations, the farther northeast the better?

There is an outdoor range in Shoreview on Lexington, north of 96 on the west side, its part of the old ammo manufacturing land. There is 8-10 lanes and they have hay bales, but its sometimes pretty beat up.

There is Bunker Lake as well that closer to Coon Rapids and they have an outdoor 30d range and an indoor range as well.

Capra's on 65 south of Highway 10 also has a shooting range on their second floor.

Those are the ones I know of.

dont think it has been mentioned yet but Bwana archery right at 694 and 35E has an indoor range and they also have a video shoot that is very reasonably priced.

Anyone know of any rifle ranges in the west metro area. I would like to shoot my muzzloader out to at least 100 yards. The only one I know of is Caribou in LaSuer and that is a hall for me. Someone said there is a private gun club in Waconia. Anyone know anything about that?

I'm not aware of any place to shoot out that way for a firearms. The DNR has a list of all the shooting ranges in the state. There is a club in Chaska/Victoria, but its completely private.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
