When is the shooting range at the Holly Shelter Game Lands going to open?

Bill Walsh

According to the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, the firing range is scheduled to open near the end of October. It has been held up from a previous projected opening of midsummer, a spokesperson said, by the construction of a mobile office on the site, and by Pender County’s obligation, now that it has partnered with the wildlife commission, to hire part-time range safety officers for the facility.

The partnership agreement means that the county will provide range safety officers on the site for safely and maintenance, and, in exchange, the wildlife commission will expand the facility — building an office for those officers, adding several more shooting lanes, and building a section for archery.
