    Opponents of a shooting range west of Whitefish on Oct. 6 failed to convince the Flathead County Board of Adjustment that the shooting facility violates zoning regulations.

    Tally Bissell Neighbors Inc. earlier this year filed a zoning complaint with the county Planning Office, alleging that Bill Hayes, the Texas businessman who initiated construction of the private range, did not establish a use prior to zoning put in place in October 2007 and therefore doesn't have a nonconforming use, so the shooting range is illegal.

    Even if Hayes had established a use as a shooting range, the neighbors maintain he has illegally expanded that use into a "daily nonstop organized barrage of continuous explosions," said Eric Kaplan, a Columbia Falls lawyer representing the neighborhood group.

    The shooting range is located off Farm to Market Road, directly across from the Tally Lake Road turn-off.

    After County Zoning Administrator Jeff Harris on Aug. 4 ruled Eyrie Shotgun Ranch did not violate zoning regulations, the neighbors appealed Harris' decision to the Board of Adjustment.

    The board denied the appeal...

    That's good. I've seen too many outdoor ranges put out of business due to new houses built around them. The range was there first and the contractor knew it when he started out.We are about to loose two out door ranges here in about the next three years due to this. One is a membership range and the other is the sheriff's range.

    Yeah, that is what really chaps my hide! There is a range here that has been here forever and now there are some homes built somewhere near it and they have the gall to try and put conditions on it. In my opinion you can show affection to my donkey if you think that this is somehow okay.

    The good news on this is that they have recently became NRA certified and they have expanded and they also have a bunch of trained range masters.
