Shooting range in Brooklyn?

I hope this is the right seciton, please move it according if it's not. Yesterday I picked up a firearm from a local forum member here and took a buddy along with me. On the way back he mentioned a range he goes to in Brooklyn, so we figured we'd stop by it. Long story short, we took a wrong turn and by the time we realized it we needed to head back to town as I had prior plans. He said he wasn't sure the name of it, as he usually just tags along with a family member. I am just wondering if anyone knows exactly where this range is and/or the name of it. Also can anyone go or do you have to be a member?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hey CSeawell,

There is a range that is maintained by the US Forestry Service. It is located near Brooklyn near the Ash Nursery. Turn off Hwy 49 just before Black Creek and go into Brooklyn. Go to caution light. Go straight across the tracks and keep going straight. Come to a fork in the road, take the right fork. This is actually straight, but keep going. Go about another a mile, cross Black Creek then go another mile or so. Come to a stop sign. This is New York Road (gravel). Take a left and go about 3-5 miles and it is on the left. When you see a bunch of gravel pits, you are there. This is a public range as far as I know.

Now here is my disclaimer, I haven't been there in years and years and my directions are from memory. You can get directions from the US Forestry Service at:

DeSoto District Ranges, US Forest Service, P.O. Box 248, Wiggins, MS 39577.
