Looks like the initial message was viewed 798 times. wwjones, imold and t.wood responded this year. I am thinking about getting into HFT and trying to find out if there is any activity in the Minneapolis area. I have not found much so far. Can anyone fill me in on clubs? Need to buy a gun and gear and would like to know if I would have a chance to use it locally.

I live in Shakopee. I used to shot a little with MAFTA (Minnesota Airgun Field Target Assoc). Great bunch. They shoot out of the Oakdale gun club - just north of Hwy 94 near Woodbury. Too bad my availability on Saturdays changed. I'd like to get back there again.

Any MN State forest is open to target shooting but NOT the wildlife management areas.


Chengwatana State Forest is a good spot. It is located east of Pine City. There is a nice campground there called the Snake River Forestry Campground. You can not shoot in the campground itself but you can setup close by in the state forest  Camping Fee is around $ 17 per night.
