Hunter Education Facility offers public courses

The Juneau Hunter Education Facility and Indoor Shooting Range, owned and operated by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, is located at 5670 Montana Creek Road. Its most important service to Southeast Alaska is providing Hunter Education courses, which will soon become a requirement to hunt on the Mendenhall Wetlands.

When the facility is not in use for hunter education, it is available for public recreational target shooting, youth club (4-H, Scouts, etc.) activities, law enforcement training and qualification, competitive programs and firearms training courses.

Open public shooting is available Saturdays through Tuesdays, except during hunter education and paid rentals. During the past year, the program has offered three free shooting days and two fee reductions, now costing $5 per hour or less. JHEF also sponsors National Rifle Association courses. Some of the courses offered are "1st Step Pistol" on Friday and Saturday; "1st Step Rifle" for the public, on Feb. 9-10; and "Basic Pistol" for ages 14-18, on Feb. 14,16 and 17.
