    Went to Sherburne with the family today to do a little plinking. Much to our disappointment the rifle and pistol ranges are closed. Began July 5 set to run for approximately the rest of the month of July. Looks like the berms are getting a facelift. As great as that is, was a a major let down considering we had driven 50 miles to get there.....

    Thought I would save anyone else thinking about using the range.

    I got the same when I talked to them yesterday. I'm guessing end of August, 1st of September.

    Anybody have any ideas on what they are doing?

    I only know what they are scheduled to do at Honey Island, which is improvements to the berms, and parking areas.

    They should be wrapping up there, as they are scheduled to return to H.I. next week.

    I say return, because they were scheduled to do the work at H.I. a couple months ago, but couldn't access the range due to high water.

    As the poster above said, a series of improvements are being done to all public ranges in Louisiana. What's being done at each range is different. At Honey Island, the State elected to make berm improvements which include side berms being added to each shooting line (rifle, pistol, etc...) and also make improvements to our parking area.

    I've seen questions asked about the "No Blue Sky" initiative which is going on across the country. The state elected not to perform that enhancement at Honey Island at this time.

    If you're wondering what No Blue Sky is, see these example pictures I've posted below.
