I'm not sure that everyone here has heard of the regulation changes that affect the Knik River Public Use Area regarding target shooting. Per the new (Nov 08) regulations you cannot target shoot on the PUA (read along Knik River riverbed on state owned land) from 2 miles downstream of the Old Glen Hwy bridges upstream to Friday Creek. To keep from excluding the sane shooters (a user group that are members of the public the PUA was formed for), DNR included up to 2 shooting ranges in the management plan for the PUA. And they are working at getting the one by Maud Rd in place. It will be a 200 yard range, shooting into a bluff of a mountain with no trails in the vicinity. Sounds like a nice addition to the Public Use Area.
Now comes the plea for help - If you think this range will be a good thing, please email Lynne Woods (Assembly Member and Acting Mayor), John Duffy (Borough Manager) and your Assembly Member (if you live in the Borough) or all the Assembly Members if you don't via http://ww1.matsugov.us/Admin/index.p...4&Itemid=20118
and tell them you support DNR's plan for the Shooting Range on Maud Road!
