NOSA Range Schedules


Indoor Shooting Schedule for NOSA Members at Thunder Bay District Fish and Game Facility

Note: When on the F&G Ranges at any time, their rules contained in their Safety Orientation Session (SOS) or on their posted range signs must be followed.

Regular Wednesday evening shooting for Junior Shooters is underway.

Regular Friday evening shooting for NOSA Adult Members who also hold Thunder Bay District Fish and Game [F&G] Memberships is underway.

New members to F&G who have not yet had an SOS (formal F&G-conducted safety briefing and walking tour of the ranges) can arrange to attend the next SOS, normally starting at the F&G Clubhouse at 09:30 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month. Specific arrangements can be made with the F&G Range Operator whose contact information is listed on the Club Contacts page -- see link in left column.

Starting from January 2023, there are now new categories of NOSA Membership. (Please see the webpage About Us -- link is in left column of this page.) Those who hold membership of NOSA plus membership of Thunder Bay District Fish and Game will be able to shoot at Nolalu seasonally (weekly Thursday through Sunday from May through end October), and at the Fish and Game Ranges year round. Other persons who want to shoot at Nolalu Ranges only can buy a special Nolalu-Only NOSA Membership.

Outdoor Nolalu Shooting Range

The NOSA Club Outdoor Shooting Range is known as the Nolalu Shooting Range or the JR Range. It is in operation in 2022 for NOSA Club Days Thursday and Friday and Saturday and Sunday from 01 May through the end of October between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. or darkness.

Shooting on other non-Club Days can only be done with the express permission of the property owner, Mr. Wade Williams, and by additional private payment by the member (and any guest) of a per person daily fee; Mr. Williams at 807-629-2653 must have given permission in advance. If the shooting ranges are booked for another group or maintenance is scheduled, permission will not be allowed that day.

Map to the Outdoor Nolalu Shooting Range

The Nolalu Shooting Range (aka JR Range) is located on the North side of Hwy 588 about one kilometre East of the intersection with Hwy 590.

Directions from Thunder Bay. The easiest driving route to this shooting range from Thunder Bay is: Go West on Hwy 11/17, just past Kakabeka Falls turn left onto Hwy 590, and drive until you reach the intersection of Hwy 588 (stop sign), turn left (East) and drive about 0.9 km. and find the shooting range's entrance on the left (North) side of the road. (When Hwy 590 is closed for construction, from Thunder Bay go West on Hwy 11/17 to Hwy 588, turn left and follow Hwy 588 to the range.)
