Idaho Fish and Game

Rules, Safety and Supervision



All Customers Must Sign-in with the Range Safety Officer Before Proceeding to the Ranges

All range activities are monitored and supervised by a NRA Certified or similarly credentialed Range Safety Officer (RSO) present on-site each day of operation. The RSOs act under the direction of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. 

Range Safety Officers are there to assist you and enforce the range rules that keep you safe. They are there to help you have an enjoyable experience at the Farragut Shooting Range so if you have a question about the range or it's use, please ask them. While they may be able to offer a word of friendly shooting advice or assist with a common firearm malfunction, RSOs are not shooting coaches or gunsmiths. If you desire firearms training or have a firearm with a significant malfunction, please seek the services of a trained professional.
