OCONTO, WI (WTAQ) - A shooting range in Oconto County will remain closed for now, after a county board committee discussed options for it Thursday.
The Machickanee Forest Shooting Range was shut down last Friday after officials say stray bullets were hitting homes near the range in the Town of Morgan.
The Forest, Parks and Recreation/Land Information Systems Subcommittee says the range could re-open after a grant-funded remodel for a short range for pistols. Hours of operation and rates may also be restricted.
However, an ordinance change like that could take at least three months.
