The primary Mission of the Northwood's Shooting Sports and Educational Center is
to operate a centrally located shooting range facility in Carlton County, Minnesota.
The Northwood's Shooting Sports and Education Center Inc. was created in 1992,
out of a recognized need for a formal shooting range for area community members
and local organizations to be able to shoot at a safe formally designed firing
range. The project was a cooperative effort between several local and state
organizations with the interest of providing a range for general firearm safety
training, marksmanship practice, and adult and youth educational programs.
In approximately 2001 the Northwood's Shooting Sports and Education Center Inc.
saw it's first year of operation while providing the above opportunities.
Today the Northwood's Shooting Sports and Education Center, still provides a
place for training opportunities, for community members, local law enforcement
training, and shooting opportunities for it's own members.
The Northwood's Shooting Sports and Education Center with the effort of it's
members volunteering their time also each year runs open range times for the
general public non-members to shoot and practice for upcoming hunting seasons. The N.S.S.E.C.
range currently has range distances of 50, 100, 200, and 300 yard shooting
distances. The Northwood's Shooting Sports and Education Center Inc. and it's
members look to continue it's efforts to promote the positive image of the Shooting and Hunting Sports, through Education, Safety, and Marksmanship.
