Public invited to Tres Piedras shooting range groundbreaking

SANTA FE – The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish invites the public to attend the groundbreaking ceremony for a public shooting range under construction at the department’s Tres Piedras Wildlife Management Area at 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 12.

The shooting range is about 3.5 miles east of Tres Piedras off U.S. 64 and about 2 miles south of the highway. Signs will be posted for the ceremony. The 200-yard State Game Commission-owned primitive range will be surrounded by earthen berms and feature several concrete shooting stations.

Some members of the State Game Commissioners may attend the ceremony but will not be formulating public policy, rules, regulations or taking any action on department-related business. Refreshments will be provided by Amigos Bravos. For more information, please visit the department website,
