Sheriff’s office to open range to hunters for sighting in their rifles


The Bossier Sheriff’s Rifle Range will open 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. 14, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Sept. 21, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
  • Sept. 28, 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. 

“Opening up our range to the public allows hunters to sight in their rifles in a safe environment with a highly-qualified range staff on scene,” said Sheriff Whittington.  “As an avid hunter myself, I know residents here in Bossier Parish are looking forward to this time of year when they can enjoy ‘the hunt’.” 

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.
