Future improvements will come in the form of new shooting tables, new roof on the 100 yd shooting shelter, development & installation of a 50 yd shooting shelter, updated electrical in the buildings, and a rentable three season day-use facility. Depending on future funding sources, there are plans to develop a trap area and archery range with 3-D target trail.
This property is located at 5949 Little Sioux Rd, Cherokee, IA. It is approximately 5 miles south of Cherokee on River Rd, turn East on 590th, then a quick turn South down Little Sioux Rd. The property borders River Road Conservation Area.
