The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has discounted its annual passes for the Banner and Olofson shooting ranges for 2024 by $40 making it the perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for member of the family.

From Nov. 25 to Dec. 31, individual passes will be available for $200 and family passes for $260, a $40 savings. Annual passes may be purchased at either range and are valid at both shooting ranges.  If you currently have a pass this purchase will just add an additional year to your current pass.

The range is staffed with professional, certified range safety officers during all operating hours.
