Sight in Guns Before Deer Season Begins

Date posted - November 22, 2015

deer_sxcHunters have the opportunity to get reacquainted with their gun before deer season begins at 11 Iowa Department of Natural Resources’ shooting ranges across the state.

The first of two shotgun deer seasons begin Dec. 5.

“Ultimately, most hunters want their guns sighted in for shots up to 100 years for deer season. We suggest they come to a shooting range and begin at closer distances like 25 yards and work their way out,” said Chris Van Gorp, shooting sports and range coordinator for the Iowa DNR.  “Practicing and knowing how the gun will perform before opening day is a good way to prepare for a successful hunt.”

Ranges managed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources can be found at then click on ‘Hunting’ and on ‘Places to Hunt and Shoot.’
