Renovated Shooting Range Now Open at Clybel WMA


Calling all recreational target shooting enthusiasts!

The Clybel Wildlife Management Area (WMA) Shooting Range, located in central Georgia, has re-opened after an intensive eight-month renovation, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division (WRD).  

“We are thrilled to offer this state-of-the-art sporting facility to Georgia shooters,” says Jennifer Pittman, WRD Hunter Development Program Manager. “The improvements made provide the customer with the most modern equipment and a gun club atmosphere with the accessibility and affordability of a public range.”

Tell Me About the Ranges:

  • Pistol Range: 35-yard pistol range with reactive steel targets at varying distances, from 7-30 yards. 
  • Rifle Range: The 100-yard rifle range was upgraded to 10 Kongsberg digital targets, offering shooters a more precise and streamlined shooting experience. 
  • Shotgun Range: The shotgun range, which includes two trap and skeet fields, a 5-stand, and a 45-yard patterning range now has shaded covers installed on the trap and skeet fields, and the skeet houses and walls were rebuilt on each range. 
  • Archery Range: Archery enthusiasts have access to a 5-target static range, a 32-target 3D archery trail, and a 3D archery tower.
