Renovated shooting range open at Zaleski State Forest

Renovations at the popular shooting ranges at Zaleski State Forest have been completed, and the ranges are now open, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).

"The renovations at the Zaleski State Forest target ranges were needed to provide visitors with a more enjoyable experience while providing easier access for participants," said Robert Boyles, state forester and chief of the ODNR Division of Forestry. "We hope that hunters and shooting enthusiasts will enjoy the new features while practicing and improving their skills."

The newly-renovated area now features a 50-yard range, which has six shooting lanes, and a 90-yard range with four shooting lanes. Weapons and ammunition permitted for legal hunting in Ohio are permitted at the ranges.

Both ranges are Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-accessible, and there is an ADA-accessible restroom available. Both ranges are paper target only, and users must supply their own targets. The 50-yard range has movable target holders so users can move their target from 10 to 50 yards. Users must register at the kiosk on-site. The parking lot has also been greatly expanded to provide more parking for visitors.

The ODNR Division of Forestry works to promote the wise use and sustainable management of Ohio's public and private woodlands. To learn more about Ohio's woodlands, visit forestry.ohiodnr.gov.

"ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all," a spokesman said. "Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov."
