The St Vrain range has sustained more wind damage than usual. There are several stacks of bales down and some 3D targets have had antlers blown away.
At the sight in range the bales are down at the 100 yard and 80 yard positions. There is also some damage at the 20 yard position. The gray cover on the big round target at 80 yards was shredded and was removed. The target face is still shootable (for now).
At the broadhead range one of the block targets is down, but the frame had been damaged before. The white animal targets are well shot up.
At the NFAA target positions (north-south), the gray cover is damaged but still mostly intact. The target face is shootable. The target face on the stack was shredded and removed.
The range is operable where shooting positions are still intact. For those who may be out shooting, please pick up any antler pieces or other target pieces you find and place them near the target to which they belong. If you can make minor repairs feel free to do so.
As a result of the extra damage there will be at least two and probably three work days planned when the eagle hour restrictions are lifted. Restrictions have been lifted in early April in the last couple of years, so watch emails and the new web site for announcements.
Please try to attend one or more work days when scheduled.
You should not be at the range or anywhere on the property except from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife restricts this area because it is a bald eagle roosting and nesting area.
There are no member exceptions to this restriction for any reason. Presence at the
range outside these hours technically is consider trespassing.
These restrictions remain in effect until lifted next spring.
