Juneau Hunter Education Shooting Complex (JHESC)
The firearms side is currently closed all of June for annual maintenance and will re-open in early July with regular hours.
New shooters are welcome to the range but need to make an appointment for a "Safety Briefing" before they can shoot. Call the range at 586-4101 to arrange a date/time. Briefings are held 30 minutes prior to public shooting hours by appointment ONLY.
