Gone Shooting at Sherwood

One thing I've come to find out is, there is probably more public land to hunt deer or freely use in Clark County, Wisconsin than all of Texas. Pray, is in Clark County and is an area we used to hang out all the time and go shooting. In Texas, pretty much all the land is private. The only exceptions are Army Corps of Engineers land or state and national parks. Even with this public land, you still have to pay a fee and a lot of places are closed off for hunting or shooting. The nice thing about public land in Wisconsin is you don't have to pay a fee and they are open to hunting and shooting. This includes some gun ranges also. In Texas, you have to either belong to a gun club or pay a fee to use the gun range. In Wisconsin, there are free gun ranges that are located on public land.

Jake and I decided to go to Sherwood, which is in Clark County.

The range has 3 shooting shacks.

And 3 dirt mounds of varying distances.

The range is free to use, but there is a club you can join to help maintain it.

The shooting shacks are really nice.

I made sure to get some earplugs before we left.

Most of the time, I just find it fun to shoot at garbage. Luckily, I had a carryout box from Polito's that I could shoot at. I set it up as a target. I also shot at some of the other garbage people had left.

I had a bunch of .22 ammo, so I just brought the .22.

Jake had just bought an AR-15, so he brought it out.

When I went to pick up the pizza box, I could see that we definitely shot it full of a bunch of holes.

Shooting was definitely fun. Just like my Cougar, it's one of the things I save for Wisconsin. Maybe I'll go out to Pray, and do some shooting there again while I am still up.
