(BIVN) – The Mile Marker 16 Shooting Range will be closed from Monday, April 15 through Thursday, April 18 as the state works on making some safety improvements.
The Hawaiʻi Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Forestry & Wildlife says the range will reopen on Friday, April 19, 2019.
“Please plan accordingly,” the Hawaiʻi DLNR stated in a media release. “We appreciate the community’s patience during this phase of work and ask that range users share this information with the larger hunting and shooting community on the Big Island.”
In October 2018, the Hawaiʻi County Game Management Advisory Commission discussed the target area and other potential shooting range locations during a meeting in Hilo.
The Mile Marker 16 Shooting Range will be discussed again at the GMAC meeting scheduled for April 15, 2019.
For general shooting range information, please call the Hunter Education Program at 1-866-563-4868, the Hawaiʻi DLNR says.
