Indiana: Sugar Ridge FWA Area 3 range to continue adjusted hours

The rifle and handgun range at Sugar Ridge Fish & Wildlife Area (FWA) will operate under winter hours until at least July 30.

A reclamation project to remove a highwall and regrade the surrounding land is taking place downrange. For the safety of those workers, the range will operate under reduced hours for the duration of the project. The Area 3 Shooting Range will be open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET, Friday through Sunday.

The shotgun and archery ranges will not be affected by this project and will operate normal hours.

During the construction project, workers will also add range berms to the existing berms to create two dedicated pistol ranges for visitors.
