BSO to open rifle range for hunting season


Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington will open the Bossier Sheriff’s Rifle Range to the public on three Saturdays in September so hunters can sight in their rifles.    

The range, located at 2955 Old Plain Dealing Road in Plain Dealing, will be open on these dates and times:

  • Sept. 15, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Sept. 22, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Sept. 29, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The range features 12 shooting lanes with targets at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards.  Shooters will need to bring their own rifles and ammunition, as well as eye and ear protection.  Basic targets will be available at the range.

“Like other hunters, I look forward to this time of year when we can take to the great outdoors and enjoy what Louisiana has to offer as the “Sportsman Paradise’,” Sheriff Whittington said.  “We have a top-notch rifle range and range staff, and opening our facility to the public at this time can help hunters sight in their rifles in a safe environment,” said Sheriff Whittington.

The Rifle Range is located just south of the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Training Academy on Old Plain Dealing Road approximately 12 miles from the town of Benton.

Although you do not need to register, you can always contact the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Training Academy at (318) 965-3525 for more information.
