A story in the Coeur d'Alene Press says the Idaho Supreme Court has voted 5-0  to reverse a district court decision that prevented the Farragut Shooting Range in north Idaho from opening.

The district court judge had ruled that the range is not safe for nearby residents and he also found issue with an Idaho statute concerning permitted noise levels, which the high court also rejected.

"This decision will once again allow public access to the Farragut range as a safe place to practice shooting sports, sighting-in firearms for hunting seasons and firearms education," stated Fish and Game Director Virgil Moore on Thursday in the Press story.
