Farragut Shooting Range To Reopen

The shooting range at Farragut State Park will reopen Saturday after a prolonged legal fight over noise and safety concerns. The range last was used in the fall 2006, and has been closed under a court injunction since 2007 while nearby homeowners pursued a lawsuit against the Idaho Department of Fish and Game over firearms noise and the danger of errant bullets. Last November the Idaho Supreme Court lifted an injunction that has kept the shooting range closed since early 2007, and this morning First District Judge John Mitchell signed an order allowing Fish and Game to operate the range again. The agency, however, is limited to 500 total range visits a year/Scott Maben, SR. More here.
