Second Knoll Target Range Open During Stage 2 Fire Restrictions
Even with Stage 2 Fire Restrictions effective as of Friday June 11th, the Second Knoll Target Range remains OPEN. As specified in the Special Use Permit with Arizona Game and Fish and the U.S. Forest Service, the range is specifically exempted from the Stage 2 Fire Restrictions. We appreciate this exemption in order to allow shooters a safe place to shoot where fire risk is minimal. We ask all shooters to be fire wise, and if they must smoke to do so within the confines of their automobiles.
WMSA Inc. assures shooters that the range is open during Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 9am to 5pm. Range Safety Officers are present to ensure a safe and fun experience. For information visit www.wmsainc.org or call 928-205-3609.

About Second Knoll Target Range
The Second Knoll Target Range is a nationwide model for range design in the National Forest. It’s a joint venture between the Arizona Game and Fish Department, the National Forest Service, ADOT, and the White Mountain Shooters Association.
Second Knoll Target Range is open for public use on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (weather permitting). See footer for winter and summer hours. The range is under the control of trained volunteer Range Safety Officers whose primary goal is to insure that everyone remains safe.
We currently offer a 100-yard all-purpose range for public use for rifles and pistols. The range complex also offers other facilities that are available through affiliated club activities. These are a 50-yard ”bullseye” pistol range equipped with turning targets and four 25-yard training and competition bays. The 50-yard range and competition bays are also available for rent for private events.
Our range is a public range under the auspices of the Arizona Game and Fish Department. The department has 11 ranges throughout the state and ours is consistently ranked in the top 3. Moreover, we aren’t done. Future plans include a 300-yard range, a clubhouse, a classroom, and a resident caretaker.
