HARTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s only publicly accessible shooting range is reopening under new rules on Thursday.

The Hammond Cove Shooting Range in Hartland was closed in May to undergo upgrades, including a new berm for the pistol range, improved acoustic tiling in the covered shooting ports, security cameras, and access road work.

The Fish and Wildlife Department says range users now will be required to sign in with an onsite range officer and have a valid Vermont hunting or fishing license, or be the guest of someone who does.

Shooting more than one round per second is prohibited, as is shooting long rifles or shotguns from the pistol bench. Shooting pistols from the rifle benches also is prohibited.

The range will be open April 1 to Dec. 14, Thursday through Monday. Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. most days.
