The Lethbridge Fish and Game Association Shooting Range is recognized as one of the finest outdoor shooting ranges in western Canada. It has attracted a variety of individuals and user groups, including shooting clubs, the local police force, government personnel, and Summer Games organizers and participants. It has attracted a fair number of new members to the LFGA.

Looking at it from left to right you will see Range 6 (Shotgun), Ranges 3-5 (.22 & Handgun), Range 2 (Big Bore), and Range 1 (Archery).

 

The LFG Range is open to all LFGA members from 8:00 AM to 9:00PM (9:00AM Sundays)during daylight hours. Remember, an LFG Range Officer must be present on the range you are using. LFG Range Officers are the only individuals who have entry cards for the gate.

 

The RANGE SCHEDULE is updated on a regular basis.  You may wish to check the schedule to make sure the range you wish to use is available.
