The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office Shooting Range will reopen to the public on Wednesday, May 1, 2013. Operating hours will be 9am to 5pm Wednesday through Saturday. The range closed temporarily in late March to accommodate the completion of berm work and other general maintenance projects. The down time also allowed for the installation of an archery range. The new addition is ready to go with 12 3-D targets and 2 additional targets for sighting in equipment. Each set of archery targets varies in distance. The targets range up to 30 to 35 yards. There are 6 lanes with 2 3-D targets per lane, offering two separate distances per lane to shoot. Targets can be adjusted out to approximately 40 yards. The new archery range will be open to all archery enthusiasts.
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office Shooting Range is located off the service road along Hwy. 90. A newly erected sign now marks the location.
