Posted Tuesday, October 15, 2013 --- 3:14 p.m.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office has announce that the Annual Hunter Sight-In Program starts Saturday, November 9, and will run through Friday, November 22.

Area hunters can prepare for the yearly Wisconsin deer hunt by sighting in their shotguns, rifles and pistols at the Dane County Law Enforcement Training Center.

The training center is located between Interstate 90/94 and Waunakee at 5184 State Highway 19.

No appointment is necessary.

The facility is open to the public 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. daily.

Citizens can only bring firearms that are legal for use in hunting deer in Wisconsin. Deputies ask that citizens come in with their guns cased, for safety reasons.

Experienced instructors will be on hand to provide assistance in the sighting and adjusting of firearms.

There is a fee of $10.00 for the first gun and $5.00 for each additional gun.

Hearing and eye protection is mandatory and will be provided, or you may use your own.

Hunters will also be able to receive information on hunting laws, regulations and gun safety.

If some target practice is all that is needed, the training center ranges are open to the public prior to Hunter Sight-In on Saturdays and Sundays 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
