Hi,

 

My apologies if this topic has been covered. I could not find it when doing a search.

 

I am looking for any free shotgun ranges. My understanding is that IL DNR has some trap ranges for the public. 

 

Basically I am not so much into trap shooting but I want to get some practice with my shotgun.

 

Unfortunately DNR websites were not helpful. 

 

I am in Naperville so anything near by or a pointer to the list will be much appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance. 


Thank you

There is one right off 55 just south of Channahon. DesPlaines Conservation Area.
Here is the list from the dnr website.

It isn't free, but there is an open to the public trap range right in Naperville

I've matured enough to where I am like a rodeo bull... If you can hang in there for eight seconds you just might win... But, those eight seconds are gonna be the toughest of your life.
