Growing up, I could shoot small bore rifles and trap in the backyard. Also, walking down to the bottom part of our land, there was a place where you could shoot pistols, though that was quite a hike to get to.
For big bore rifles, Pops and I would go to the local DNR Wildlife Managment Area, where a 100 yard range was available. It had a covered shooting area, benches, and target stands.
Until recently, it was free. Now, it is required that you buy a day pass for three dollars. However, if you have a valid GA hunting or fishing license, you can use it all you like, and can even bring one guest for free to.
