The Clybel Wildlife Management Area (WMA) Shooting Range, located in central Georgia, has re-opened after an intensive eight-month renovation, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division (WRD).
“We are thrilled to offer this state-of-the-art sporting facility to Georgia shooters,” says Jennifer Pittman, WRD Hunter Development Program Manager. “The improvements made provide the customer with the most modern equipment and a gun club atmosphere with the accessibility and affordability of a public range.”
Tell Me About the Ranges:
- Pistol Range: 35-yard pistol range with reactive steel targets at varying distances, from 7-30 yards.
- Rifle Range: The 100-yard rifle range was upgraded to 10 Kongsberg digital targets, offering shooters a more precise and streamlined shooting experience.
