The Dane County Sheriff’s Office annual Hunter Sight-In program is scheduled for Nov. 7-20. The event is a tradition for local hunters to prepare for the upcoming deer hunt and will be open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The program allows hunters to sight-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. 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. There is a fee of $10 for the first gun and $5 for each additional gun. Hearing and eye protection is mandatory and is provided, or you may use your own. Hunters will also be able to receive information on hunting laws, regulations and gun safety.

Face masks will be required inside the building and social distancing will be practiced. For additional information, contact the training center staff at 608-284-2400.
