WILTON, N.D. — The public shooting range at the Wilton Mine Wildlife Management Area east of Wilton is closed until further notice because of fire danger caused by dry conditions.

The North Dakota Game and Fish Department says the Schmidt Bottoms and MacLean Bottoms shooting ranges remain open. However, shooters are advised to use caution because of the conditions.

Schmidt Bottoms is south of Mandan, and MacLean Bottoms is southeast of Bismarck.
