Public Comments for Shotgun Sports and Hunter Education Training Center

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, in partnership with the Longhorn Council BSA, is seeking the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s approval (through a Federal Assistance grant) for a proposed project to construct, operate, and maintain an outdoor Shotgun Sports and Hunter Education Training Center at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch.

The Longhorn Council proposes to construct, operate, and maintain an outdoor shotgun sports center at Sid Richardson Scout Ranch (SR2) for hunter education instruction, for training scouts and the public in safe and responsible shotgun sports, and to provide Scouts and the public a safe, environmentally friendly shotgun sports experience. The Camp is located at Boy Scout Road, Runaway Bay, Texas 76426 in Wise County

An Environmental Assessment has been prepared to evaluate the potential effects of the Proposed Action. This project would be funded by the Service’s Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program.

A public comment period is open from April 1st- April 15th. The links below will direct you the the Environmental Assessment document and the portal for making public comments.

No action is required, but you are invited to review the materials and provide your comments to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
