Open ranges to help prepare hunters for deer season

Deer hunting season is about to start in Illinois, and law enforcement officers want to make sure all hunters have properly working firearms.

That’s why on November 15th, Illinois State Police ranges will be open to the public.

Hunters can bring their guns and have firearm experts check them to ensure they are working properly.

Hunters can also practice their marksmanship and make sure their sights are aligned.

Targets will be provided and there is no charge to use the range. Ranges will be open from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

All participants must have a valid FOID card and bring their own ammunition.

Firearm deer season begins on November 21st. For the full calendar, click here.
