"Unfortunately, expanded target shooting activities in Benzie County have created unsafe conditions for public land users and neighboring landowners in the vicinity of North Pioneer Road," the DNR said Thursday.

DNR Director Dan Eichinger said the shooting area won’t reopen until safety concerns are solved.
