HARTLAND —The Hammond Cove shooting range in Hartland, Vt. will be temporarily closed from Sept. 22-25 and again on Oct. 7 for major renovations, according to an announcement from the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
The first fully-public range in Vermont, the Hammond Cove Shooting Range was funded, in part, by a National Rifle Association Public Range Grant and Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act funds. Wildlife Restoration funds are generated through a dedicated excise tax on sporting guns and ammunition.
The range would not be possible without the Hartland Fish & Game Club members who keep the range clean, repair target frames and open and close the gate each day.
