Website doesn't say what distances the lanes are. I want to make sure I'm not shooting my 50 at a 75m berm.


Thanks guys.

I never trust what any range says the butts are, I always bring my rangefinder/

It's been a few years since I've been there, but if I recall correctly, there are 7, 25, 50 and 100 yard berms.

I believe Tapperman is correct, but I have never paced it off.

Which one, there's several.

If you're talking about the range between Eagle River & Conover, off Hwy 45, I haven't been there for almost a week now. It has a 50' pistol range separated by berms from the rifle ranges. The rifle ranges are 25, 50, 100yds. That's from bench to target backstop, and my rangefinder says they're correctly marked within a yard (which is the depth of the bench).

Other ranges are north of Arbor Vitae off Hwy 51, and south of Boulder Junction on Nebish Lake Rd, off of Hwy M. I don't use either, so can't help you with those. I'm about 6 miles from the Conover range, others are 25 & 30 miles from home.

Is the range north of Phelps still open?

Shhhhhh... that's a secret. FIBS haven't discovered it yet.









Yes it is.

Jesus Christ. Four hours of driving to find I forgot one of my two ammo cans. I found some local 50bmg but no 22lr to save my life.

It's a nice range. Be sure to give some $ to the coffer. There are a lot of FIBS there (former FIB), but earlier on the weekdays is a good time to go. Help clean up if you can. Plus, you can always stop off at the Tribute Brewery In ER on the way home...
Thanks to the folks who maintain that range. My family and I use it when up in the Northwoods.
