TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — A new public shooting range has opened in northern Michigan.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the range is in Grand Traverse County's Union Township. It offers 12 lanes for target shooting, with three lanes each at 10, 25, 50 and 100 yards.

Range hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through the end of September, then 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily beginning Oct. 1.

Shooting outside of open hours is not allowed.

The range will remain open through Nov. 30 or until snowfall, whichever comes first, and then will reopen in spring 2019.

The DNR also has seven staffed shooting ranges in southern Michigan.
