    I work the three ranges there for the ODWC. Yes, they are open from official sunrise to official sunset. If you have a valid Oklahoma hunting license, you are welcome. If you don’t, expect me or two others to ask you to leave. A Game Warden will fine you upwards of over $300! All three ranges are covered now with concrete benches and adjustable seats. Nice place to shoot, but don’t be stupid!

    And don't bring explosives.

    Oh, and don't stare at another man's wife or daughter, you make them feel unwelcomed.

    And take your targets with you when you leave!!! Probably not needed for folks here, but recently, my trips out there include me removing people's old targets. Two weeks ago, me and a friend disassembled a cardboard target stand some people taped and stapled together on the northern rifle range. It was made up of 8-10 individual boxes, with all kinds of southern engineering to get it to stand about 4 feet tall and hold multiple targets. Then they just left it there. Wish you were there Brother Bob when we were that day!

    My last trip was last weekend and the folks using the range said they would get my targets as they were shooting them

    Hello everyone!

    so finally after 20 years, the wife wants to learn to shoot and understand firearms. Ive been looking for an outdoor range that doesn’t get too crowded because she is a high risk for Covid person and she gets anxious around large crowds.
    What days/times are best to go to the range at Lexington when a minimal amount of people might be there?
    Also, is the range self regulated or is there a range monitor that helps keeps things safe? Thanks in advance for any information.
