South Dakota Shooting Sports Complex Project
The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks (SDGFP) is proposing to develop a shooting range complex on state-owned property that will accommodate the varied interest of both hunters and recreational shooters. The proposed project will be utilized for educational classes, hunter safety training, shooting sports activities, and other associated shooting range events, and will provide a safe and managed facility for the public to participate in shooting sports activities in an area where such opportunities are limited. The project will be funded in part with a grant acquired through the Pittman-Roberson Wildlife Restoration Act, administered by the Service.
