Dept. of Natural Resources: Peshtigo shooting range expands hours with volunteer help

PESHTIGO, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced extended hours at the Peshtigo Shooting Range in Marinette County.

Due to increased volunteer hours, the shooting range will now be open four days a week, with more hours on Sunday. Previously, the range was only open for two days per week.

The new hours are:

  • Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday: 1 p.m. – sunset
  • Sunday: 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
  • Tuesday and Saturday: Closed

“The facility is here for the community, and the dedication of our volunteers is emblematic of that,” said Bob Nack, DNR Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation Team supervisor. “The DNR’s goal is to provide safe and enjoyable experiences for the users and the facility neighbors.”

Visitors should be aware that range hours can change in the winter due to the weather. If the gate is closed, the range is not open.
