The Izaak Walton Shooting Facility (Ike's Tract) located 2.5 miles west of Toledo reopened on Aug. 3, 2012, under new rules and regulations. Since the reopening area shooters have shown a renewed interest in the facility. During 2013 there were over 135 shooters authorized to use the facility.
Shooters that attended a site specific presentation, signed a responsibility agreement, and paid their user fees were authorized to shoot at the facility through December 31, 2013.
It is now time to for those shooters to get reauthorized to keep shooting at the facility.
Two reauthorization meetings are scheduled providing a quick and easy process for shooters authorized to use the facility during 2013 to get back on board for the current season.
NOTE: A sign-up session for new shooters at the facility will be held at a later date. These meetings are only for shooters that were authorized to shoot during 2013.
