Remember the Brokenhead River Game & Fish Association is a conservation site. Be gentle and respectful of our little friends of the forest.
Note that the Range is CLOSED on June 12 & 13th until 4:00 pm so please mark these dates in your calendar:
MB Conservation Officers Qualifiers have booked the Range therefore the Range will be unavailable to the membership from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm on that Tuesday and Wednesday. Hopefully fire conditions at that time will allow the CO staff to qualify on these dates.
On behalf of BRG&FA we thank you, our Manitoba Conservation Officers, for your dedication and tireless work – BE SAFE!
Closed as of today for 2018:
If any members want to go out and shoot the course/5 stand, please contact:

Members using the range PLEASE use caution during this extreme dry period – Absolutely NO burning of garbage, NO open fires, keep ATV/cart use to the main trails; stay out of the long grassy areas where a spark could start a forest fire!
There is currently a burn ban in effect for the RM of Brokenhead. At this time, there are no specifics to the ban from the RM, I have included the Sustainable Development link, the Eastern Region has in place a Level 1 Fire and Travel Restrictions, as below. Just a reminder to members using the range to use extreme caution. Again, NO burning of garbage, NO open fires, try to keep ATV’s/carts to main trails (out of long grassy areas).
