The public archery trail at Curtis Gates Lloyd Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Grant County is closed until further notice for cleanup and repairs after storms littered the trail with debris and damaged some targets.

The ¼-mile trail courses through the wooded area near Leary Lake and includes 15 targets of varying yardage.

White ash trees dominate this section of the WMA and many are dead because of the invasive emerald ash borer. The standing snags pose a danger to trail users.

Strong storms toppled several trees and snapped limbs earlier this summer. The debris is blocking target lanes and some target stands are in need of repair or replacement.

The public archery range on the WMA remains open while the archery trail is closed.
