Conservation Commissioner Mike Considine, who has served on the Musquash Task Force, updated the Commission on the group’s final recommendations related to target shooting in the Musquash Conservation Area.
“The Task Force voted 6-3 to ban target shooting, and to identify a single location managed by a group that’s open for a particular period of time for target shooting with smaller caliber rounds. I recommended an area like the Town Recycling Center,” Considine said. “We continued to talk and there was a recommendation to double the safe distance for shooting to 600 feet and limit the caliber of shooting rounds to those consistent with hunting in southern New Hampshire, and to permit shooting out there only during deer and turkey hunting season. That passed with a vote of 4-3.”
