Menomonie Mustang Trap Shooting Practice - The Menomonie High School Trap Team (the Mustangs) practices 4 PM-8 PM on Tuesday nights in the spring and Wednesday nights in the summer. The public is welcome to attend and shoot trap with them. Cost is $4.00 per relay (25 clays). When the trap range is open, the pistol and rifle ranges are closed.
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.
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 March with the Menomonie High School Trap Team practicing on Tuesdays.
