The Dane County Sheriff’s Office is pleased to announce the Annual Hunter Sight-In Program. The program starts Saturday, Nov. 9, and will run through Friday, Nov. 22.
Dane County Sheriff's Public Information Officer Elise Schaffer said area hunters can prepare for the yearly Wisconsin deer hunt by sighting in their shotguns, rifles and pistols in a safe environment at the Dane County Law Enforcement Training Center.
The training center is located between Interstate 90/94 and Waunakee at 5184 State Highway 19. No appointment is necessary. The facility is open to the public between the hours of 8:30 am and 3:30 pm daily. Citizens may only bring firearms that are legal for use in hunting deer in Wisconsin.
Experienced instructors will be on hand to provide assistance in the sighting and adjusting of firearms. Schaffer said a fee of $10 for the first gun and $5 for each additional gun will be charged.
Hearing and eye protection is mandatory and will be provided, or you may use your own. Hunters will also be able to receive information on hunting laws, regulations, and gun safety.
If some target practice is all that is needed, the training center ranges are open to the public prior to Hunter Sight-In on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Additional information may be obtained by contacting training center staff at (608) 849-2660, or log on to the Sheriff’s Department website at danesheriff.com .
