• The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is seeking public comment on the draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the construction of the Clovis Wing-shooting Complex and Archery Range at Ned Houk Park in Clovis.

The EA analyzes potential effects on physical, biological and cultural resources and socioeconomic conditions that may result from the implementation of the project. The EA also incorporates other federal, state and local environmental policies and regulations and is prepared in accordance with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) National Environmental Policy Act Handbook.

The proposed range would include a four trap/skeet combination fields, a sporting clays course, a 90-yard archery sight-in range and multipurpose building that would house classrooms and an indoor archery/air gun range, storage and restroom on a 150-acre parcel owned by the city. The range project is a partnership between the Department and city and will be operated and maintained by the city if constructed. If approved, the USFWS Wildlife Restoration Grant Program will provide much of the funding for this project. The range will serve as a public shooting range and will also provide hunter education program opportunities.

The draft EA can be found on the Department's website. Comments can be sent to [email protected] and must be received by Aug. 30.

For information, please call 505-476-8100. Printed copies of the draft EA can be obtained by writing the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, P.O. Box 25112, Santa Fe, NM 87504 to the attention of Jessica Fisher, Shooting Program information.
