There have been recent sightings of bears- black ones and brown ones- wandering through the various shooting range areas . Generally, they mind their own business and stick to the perimeter of the cleared range area, however extra care is required when getting ready to shoot at the long range rifle range as the animals can be hidden in the brush.
Members are reminded that all animals on the range are protected – we are still inside City limits! Do not shoot near them in attempts to scare them off. Call a cease fire and wait for them to move away. Also, remember to put any food waste directly into the dumpster so as to not attract these characters onto the firing line areas.
Take your time and scan the line before you start to shoot.
