Times Spent Outdoors: Priceless!

Target Range Coming To The White Mountains

The U.S. Forest Service has issued a special use permit to the Arizona Game and Fish Commission for a new target range to be built near Show Low. The Second Knoll Target Range will be operated by the White Mountain Shooters Association (WMSA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, through a license agreement with the commission.

The target range will be located in an unused cinder pit that was previously permitted by the Forest Service to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT). The cinder pit is located 5 miles from the Show Low airport, is easily accessible, and has a 75-foot-deep pit to provide a safe shooting location.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department has worked closely with ADOT, the Forest Service and WMSA to bring a new target range to the White Mountains. Construction is expected to begin in 2015.

Second Knoll Target Range will accommodate pistol and rifle target shooters and will provide a great opportunity for hunters and target shooters in the White Mountain community to practice their shooting skills at a convenient and safe facility.
