Northern Arizona Shooting Range closed until further notice
Posted June 22, 2021
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The Northern Arizona Shooting Range will be closed indefinitely due to fire danger, dry conditions and persistent wildfire activity that have forced a full closure of the Coconino National Forest.
The range, located about 20 miles east of Flagstaff, will cease operations beginning at 8 a.m. Wednesday, June 23. The range will reopen only when conditions improve.
The 160-acre range, which features rifle and pistol ranges, as well as stations for trap, skeet, sporting clays and five-stand, is owned by the Arizona Game and Fish Commission. The range is maintained and operated by the Northern Arizona Shooting Foundation.
