Black's Creek Public Shooting Range

Black's Creek Public Shooting Range (BCR), located just southeast of Boise, is the largest and most visited range in Idaho, providing a safe place to shoot for more than 7,000 hunters and sport shooters each year.
BCR is one of only four Idaho shooting ranges owned by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. The non-profit shooting club, the EE-DA-HOW Long Rifles, Inc. is responsible for day to day management of BCR.

This month at BCR

September brings with it a hint of fall, shorter days and the approach of hunting seasons. To better accommodate hunters looking to sight in their firearms, expanded operating hours will continue at BCR through the month.

So make a trip to BCR and insure that your favorite firearm is on target for the 2017 hunting season.

As is customary, spectators are welcome at any of the organized shooting competitions held at BCR, and there are a bunch of them this month. Check the events section on this page for a description of these shooting events.

September Days/Hours of Operation:

BCR is open from 10:00am to 8:00pm, Thursday through Monday.

The range is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Sight In Event - Saturday, September 9 from 10-8. Hunter Education Instructors will be on hand to help you get that new (or old) rifle sighted in for hunting season.
