The Menomonie Rifle and Pistol Club, LLC. hosts the following events at the Menomonie Public Shooting Range:
All events are open to the public. During some events, portions or all of the range may be closed to other activities. Some events may require pre-registration and/or an entry fee, or may be limited to specific type of participant. For example, Hunter Safety is for people needing the WI DNR Hunter Safety Certificate; Women on Target is for women only; the Youth Muzzleloading Clinic is limited to youths under 16 , the Adult Muzzleloading Shoot is open to everyone (youths under 18 must be accompanied by an adult), but only Muzzleloading rifles are allowed.
Project Appleseed - Project Appleseed is run by the Revolutionary War Veterans Association and combines teaching basic marksmanship skills with stories about the American Revolution.
Hunter's Education Field Test - The range hosts 3 Hunter Safety Field Tests each year. Two are for the courses held at the Dunn County Fish and Game Building and the other course is held through the school district. DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, the DNR is re-evaluating the requirements for the course. We do not know yet how the new requirements will affect the course we offer. This link will take you to our Hunter Education page which tells about the course offered by our organization through the Dunn County Fish and Game Association and has a link to the Wisconsin DNR Hunting page, where you can find when and where upcoming courses are held and registration instructions.
Gals and Guns (Formally Women on Target) - This event is open to women only, providing the opportunity for women to become familiar shooting several different types of rifles,shotguns, pistols, and archery.
Ladies Night at the Range - A chance for women to bring their own firearms and ammunition and get coaching on shooting from our range supervisors.
Youth Muzzleloading Clinic and Adult Muzzleloading Shoot - Held on the second Saturday of August, the YOUTH CLINIC is from 9-12 and introduces youths under 16 to the sport of shooting muzzleloading rifles. The ADULT SHOOT starts after lunch at 1:00 PM and ends with the drawing of our annual raffle at 4:00PM.
Menomonie Mustang Trap Shooting Practice - The Menomonie High School Trap Team (the Mustangs) practices 4 PM-7 PM on Wednesday nights. The public is welcome to attend and shoot trap with them. Cost is $6.00 per relay (25 clays). When the trap range is open, the pistol and rifle ranges are closed.
As the above events are annual events, we are able to plan for these in advance. However, we also have groups requesting use of the range during the year. Again, some of the events are open to the public and some are not. Be sure to keep checking the the calendar for changes and additions. If your group/ organization would like to reserve a portion or the entire range for an event, contact Public Relations and include a contact person and a idea of the number of people, when you would like the event to take place, and what kind of event you would like to have.
Events do not start until after the time change in March with the Menomonie High School Trap Team practicing on Wednesdays.
