The MacLean shooting range located 15 miles southeast of Bismarck will be closed this summer for reconstruction and expansion. A closed sign will be posted at the entrance.
Improvements will include a shotgun range, handgun range, and a 100- and 200-yard rifle range. Construction is scheduled for June, July and August, with the range slated to open late summer.
MacLean Bottoms is 2 miles south of ND Highway 1804.
Two alternate public ranges that are open are Schmidt Bottoms and Wilton Mine Wildlife Management Area.
Schmidt Bottoms, located 13.4 miles south of Mandan on ND Highway 1806, was already reconstructed with a shotgun range, handgun range, and a 100- and 200-yard rifle range.
Wilton Mine Wildlife Management Area is approximately 2 miles east of Wilton.
