The Bodcau Shooting Range located in Benton will be closed beginning May 16 for renovation and infrastructure improvement, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) announced. Work is expected to be completed by early September.

The renovation work is part of a statewide LDWF shooting range improvement initiative. This construction will result in enhanced user and range safety features.
