MDC is partnering with the Missouri 4-H Foundation for a year-long survey, beginning Jan. 1, where 4-H survey staff will ask range shooters to participate in a brief exit survey, which includes a series of questions about their experiences using the ranges. Participation in the survey is completely voluntary. Read more.
