The Vermont Fish & Wildlife department says a new shooting range is now open for public use. 

According to the department the West Mountain Shooting Range in Ferdinand, Vermont is the second shooting range open for public use.

“Vermont has some of the safest and most conservation-minded hunters anywhere,” said Vermont Fish & Wildlife Commissioner Louis Porter.

“They need a publicly accessible place where they can sight in their rifles and practice their shooting skills.  West Mountain Shooting Range will provide just that, especially for residents of Essex County and adjacent communities,” added Porter.  

Officials say the new range has four shooting lanes with 15, 50, 75, and 100 yards. 

The shooting range will be open Monday through Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to sunset, April 16 to December 14, unless otherwise posted.

To use the new range folks must have a Vermont hunting license.  Shooters are required to follow all range rules.
