The Packers Creek Range is one of NZ's premier shooting ranges and it's found right in here in the Hira Forest, Nelson. It's a Range designed and constructed by shooters over many decades. Nelson members have been constantly improving, maintaining and enhancing the facilities to provide a safe shooting setting for all NZDA members use as well as the wider community. It started in the early 70's and after some 50 years is still being used every weekend of the year by shooting and hunting enthusiasts. Enjoy the collection that follows documenting the story, its history and the ingenuity that went into creating this outstanding asset of the Nelson Branch.
