    Binky, check out the following post. It mentions a new range in Lexington. I only know as much as is in the post.

    their rifles in? Blue Grass Sportsman's League is having an open house the weekend of October 25 & 26. Saturday there will be a 100, 200 & 300yd ranges set up with spotting scopes and targets. Sunday there will be Skeet, Sporting Clays,Trap and the rifle ranges. Also Cowboy action shooting.

    When I retire I had though about opening a indoor shooting range, but with McCreary County being so poor, I don't believe it would support it. Somerset probably could, don't know if I would want to drive that far everyday. But then with the job market around here I might have to anyway. [:(]

    GO NAVY!!!

    check this out, off of old Frankfort pike and New Circle

    Also, I think that you can use the states WMA's as gun ranges. As long as you aren't poaching and are obviously just target shooting, I think it is legal to shoot firearms on them.

    The Kleber WMA north of frankfort would be the closest to Lexington


    See ya, Bennypapa

    No it ain't! Unless they have a gun range.

    I don't want to pick a fight so don't get mad but..

    Do you know where it is written that it is illegal to shoot guns on wma's out of season???

    I'm not arguing, just trying to learn.


    FWIW, the Kleber WMA over north of Frankfort has a range. Fortunately for me that was where I was gonna go anyway.

    I called and asked about guns and wma's today, the lady that answered the phone was CLUELESS. Just clueless.

    So, it is legal to hunt them but they have their own rules so call and check.

    I would like to know where to look this up since the KDFWR receptionist didn't know and didn't even know who I should ask either.


    Thanks

    I found this in the fall hunting and trapping guide 2004

    page46,
    hunting on wma's
    section 1


    "General user guidlines for all wildlife management areas owned or managed by the KDFWR

    1) For game listed in this guide, hunting seasons on the WMAs listed in section 2 are open only as stated. Hunting for groundhogs, coyotes, wild hogs or other species that may be hunted year round, is permitted on all WMA's. Only drawn hunters may take these species during deer, pheasant and elk quota hunts."



    So, unless a deer, pheasant, or elk hunt is under way, you CAN have firearms on a WMA and you can shoot them as long as you are a licensed hunter and unless there is a gun range. In the case of the gun range you must target shoot at the range. Otherwise you can hunt the above mentioned species year round.

    Does anyone else read that differently?

    WMA's must have gun ranges (skeet, trap, rifle) in order to just shoot. You can not sight rifles in or bring boxes of clay pigeons. It's in the hunting guide, but I don't remember where.

    Chessies CAN do more than waterfowl!!!

    Bud does not have one in Lex. I think he re-started one in Paris. There is an indoor range in Lex on Old Frankfort Pike.
