DNR seeking public comment on proposed Crawford County shooting range

The Department of Natural Resources is taking public comment on a new shooting range proposed for development on the campus of Kirtland Community College at 4800 West 4 Mile Road, Grayling, in Crawford County. See map of Kirtland Community College location.


The proposed project includes construction of 24 shooting lanes open to the public for a variety of shooting options, including 12 lanes (100 yards) for pistol training and 12 lanes (300 yards) for long gun training. Each side of the range would offer the ability to place targets at varying distances, from 50 yards up to the maximum length of the lane. There would also be a facility for shooting sports, firearm and archery training constructed on-site. See Kirtland Community College shooting range site survey and site improvement plan.


For more information or to provide input on the range, email DNR Shooting Sports Manager Gary Jones at JonesG@Michigan.gov.
