GOLDEN POND, Ky. (AP) — Land Between the Lakes has improved target ranges for those visiting the Golden Pond area.

An upgraded shooting area has two firearms ranges — a 175-yard rifle range with six shooting benches and a 50-yard pistol range with four shooting benches.

For archery practice, the improved area offers both a range and a field archery range trail, The Paducah Sun reported.

The ranges are open from dawn to dusk and will be first-come, first-served.

John Rufli, executive director of the Land Between the Lakes Association private support group, says the improvements were paid for with a grant from the National Rifle Association and donations from individuals and businesses.
