BATON ROUGE, La. (LDWF) - The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will conduct required lead removal at the Bodcau, Woodworth, Sherburne and Pearl River-Honey Island shooting ranges later this month and into October.

Work at each shooting range will be coordinated to minimize impact to the public, however, some closures may be needed during the process.

The Sherburne Shooting Range will experience intermittent closures on the rifle and pistol ranges from Oct. 7-11.

Planned work dates for each shooting range are as follows: Bodcau, Sept. 23-27; Woodworth, Sept. 30-Oct. 4; Sherburne, Oct. 7-11; Pearl River-Honey Island, Oct. 14-18.

Range users are encouraged to contact their specific range directly for relevant closure information prior to visiting the range during these dates. To contact LDWF’s shooting ranges, go to http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/hunting/shooting-ranges.
