PESHTIGO—The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Friday announced the temporary closure of its Peshtigo shooting range due to a staffing shortage.

The department is recruiting personnel to staff the facility to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all users.

While this facility is temporarily closed, the department recommends users review the DNR’s Public Shooting Ranges webpage for links to other range websites as well as updates regarding changes to range operations.

The DNR said range users can visit these nearby sites: Peshtigo Gun Club (W2803 Pheasant Farm Rd, Peshtigo). This is a shotgun-rifle facility. And Machickanee (3490 Garrity Road, Oconto Falls). This is a county-owned, rifle-pistol facility.

The range will reopen to normal operations once staffing is in place. The DNR appreciates users’ patience during this temporary closure.
