Black's Creek Public Shooting Range

Black's Creek Public Shooting Range (BCR), located just southeast of Boise, is the largest and most visited shooting range in Idaho, providing a safe place to shoot for more than 10,000 hunters and sport shooters each year.
BCR is one of 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 operation of BCR.

Taking Aim At COVID-19
Black's Creek Public Shooting Range remains open with much of the credit for that fact going to our patrons. Please continue to social distance while at BCR; wearing a mask at appropriate times is also encouraged. Remember to wash your hands/use hand sanitizer and enjoy your time at the range!

September BCR days/hours of operation:
Summer days/hours continue at BCR, with the range open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Thursday through Monday. The range is closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Sight In event is coming to BCR on Saturday, September 12. On this special day, Hunter Education Instructors will be on hand to help get that new (or old) rifle sighted in for hunting season. Proceeds from the day go to the Idaho Hunter Education Association - Treasure Valley Chapter to ultimately benefit Idaho’s young hunters. If you are a BCR regular, it will be business as usual, with a few more Range Officers present.

For more BCR information, call the BCR office: 208-342-9614 or the Nampa Fish and Game office: 208-465-8465. We look forward to seeing you at BCR!
