Check any of the local gun clubs first. A lot of them have ranges open any time. I live near St. Cloud and there are several ranges here that have open shooting, you just need to buy a membership usually in the 25$ range for a year.
Trust me, I have checked local gun ranges. they have a 3 year wait and cost $2,000 a year to be a member. You have to pretty much go to st.cloud or farther to find any ranges or clubs that you don't have to be rich to use
thanks for the info. I checked out where Delano & Howard Lake are and they are just as far away from Chaska as the American Legion gun range in Elko is.
Oh well, I guess I just have to dishout the $20 in gas everytime to go to the range or pay $2000 a year for a local place.
Oh yeah, I'm looking for a rifle range of 100 yards and 50 yards.
Looks like I just need to just buy some land halfway through my life when I might be able to afford it. Then I could shoot and ride ATV.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
