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.
