Byers Canyon Shooting Range reopens
April 21, 2009
The Byers Canyon Shooting Range has reopened for the season, according to the Colorado Division of Wildlife.
The range west of Byers Canyon on U.S. Highway 40, which was closed for the winter because it is located in a big game wintering area, reopened at the end of March after the game had moved on and the ground was dry.
Everyone between the ages of 19 and 64 must have a Colorado Wildlife Habitat Stamp to enter the range. That includes those accompanying shooters whether they are shooting or not.
Use of the range is free, but users must provide their own targets and ammunition. Separate areas are designated for handguns, shotguns, archery and rifles. Rifle ranges include target posts at 25, 100 and 200 yards.
Users are asked to remove their targets and pick up their brass when they are finished.
Hours are sunup to sundown until the range closes for the winter.
