Range Improvements at Flatbrook WMA


Flatbrook Range Shooting Station September 2, 2020

The Division is excited to unveil the recently renovated public Rifle Training Area located on Flatbrook Wildlife Management Area. The upgraded training range is now open to licensed hunters and their guests. Upon arrival at the range, shooters will immediately notice:

  • A covered firing-line
  • Six new individual shooting stations, including one ADA-compliant station
  • Reinforced downrange concrete baffles
  • Improved parking area

The new bench rests and seats provide a stable platform for shooters to hone their skills at the longer distances. Downrange baffles and target berms eliminate the potential for bullets to travel beyond the backstop. These enhancements will increase the safety and maximize the enjoyment of recreational shooters.

The improvements made at the Flatbrook range create a safe and user-friendly experience for adults and youth alike, and allow the Division to provide additional shooting opportunities to the public including the use of centerfire ammunition up to and including.30 caliber. The improvements were made possible with state dedicated conservation funding and revenue from the federal Wildlife Restoration Program, generated from the purchase of hunting and target shooting equipment and supplies. This is just one way that hunters and recreational shooters support conservation in New Jersey.

The Flatbrook Wildlife Management Area public Rifle Training Area is located one mile west of the Flatbrook office on Route 615/Flatbrookville Rd. in Sussex County:
