County still looking at shooting/habitat combo

Despite a cool reception from a federal agency and a local citizens parks advisory board, Hays County commissioners are considering using some or all of the remaining approximately $8.4 million in parks bond money to buy at least 250 acres of endangered bird habitat co-located with more than 300 acres of land suitable for shooting ranges.
