Shooting Range Plan Near Flagstaff Moving Forward


he Arizona Game and Fish Commission unanimously voted to enter into agreement with the Coconino National Forest for a land exchange that would enable the Arizona Game and Fish Department to acquire a site for the development of a community shooting range in northern Arizona.

At a recent meeting the commission agreed to execute an Agreement to Initiate (ATI) with the Coconino National Forest for the proposed Willard Springs property, and to simultaneously investigate two other potential locations.

The Cochrane Hill and the Winona/ Telephone Range sites, both Coconino National Forest properties, will undergo cultural surveys to determine if acquiring either of these sites would more adequately meet the critical need for a local recreational public shooting range near Flagstaff. Both alternate sites are located 30 minutes east of Flagstaff, north of I-40.
