License Dollars at Work for YOU! Beginning in May, the Wilson Shoals Shooting Range will initiate an extensive renovation project. The range is expected to be unavailable throughout the work, with a re-opening currently planned for February 2019. Range improvements include:

  • Extending the length of the rifle range from 75 to 100 yards
  • Increasing the width of the rifle range to accommodate 14 shooters (currently allows for 10)
  • Adding a 10 station, 25-yard pistol range
  • Adding a classroom, office and storage building
  • Adding 2 bathrooms with running water
  • Adding a covered waiting pavilion for both the rifle and pistol range
  • Adding additional parking

We can't wait for you to use this renovated facility and we appreciate your patience as we make these improvements for you.

The Wilson Shoals Shooting Range is located on Wilson Shoals Wildlife Management Area in Banks County.
