Missouri Conservation Department Shooting Ranges Available
I shoot at the Parma Woods facility. Its really nice. Three dollars an hour to shoot there, they provide targets and it is very safe. I don't have to worry about someone running off with my guns when I'm down range changing targets because the agents running Parma keep a sharp I on things. My only complaint is that they don't have a 200 yard range. Very nice though and a much better value for the average shooter than joing a gun club.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
