Moss Knob shooting range to reopen in 2014

Written by 

The Moss Knob Shooting Range, located in the Nantahala Ranger District, Nantahala National Forest, will reopen in spring 2014 following improvements to the area, such as a new access road to the shooting range from behind the shooting line and building a new earthen backstop for each shooting line. The work also will include drain work, as well as filling and leveling along the firing line. The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the National Rifle Association are partners in the project. Repairs were scheduled to be completed this fall, but logistical challenges with the project delayed the range’s opening.  For more information on the closing and improvements, contact Thomas Saylors, recreation staff officer of the Nantahala Ranger District, at 828.524.6441 (ext. 424).

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
