Input Sought On Sport Shooting At Washington Rec Area

The Wenas Target Shooting Advisory Committee is seeking input from Washington State outdoorsmen and women in hopes of keeping the Wenas Wildlife Area open for recreational shooting.

Last fall, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife proposed closing the 115,000-acre area to recreational shooting, putting an end to generations of use by Washington residents. Fortunately, opposition from NRA members, hunters, shooters, local legislators and elected officials convinced them to take a closer look at the issue.

An advisory committee has been formed to make recommendations on how to best manage shooting sites, enforce laws and regulations, and provide education to the public on safe use—but Washington shooters need your help.
