SIGHT IN DAYS

Posted by smith.wendell1@gmail.com on September 3, 2022 at 6:10 AM

SIGHT IN DAYS

Rifle, Archery and Crossbow

The UPPER HUMBER ROD and GUN ASSOCIATION will hold this activity at our club range at 177 Goose Arm Road in Deer Lake  

We are pleased to present the dates as posted below for the scheduled days prior to the hunting season.

The club will be assisting hunters to sight in their firearms prior to the up-coming hunting season. This will help with your marksmanship skills ensuring proper shot placement and hopefully a more successful hunting season with no losses or wounded animals escaping. This will also alert you of any firearms or equipment issues giving you time to correct any identified troubles prior to the hunting season.

Good Luck !

We hope all your hunting activities are safe and successful.


Archery and Crossbow targets are available for target arrows only. We have 3 targets that can be set up on a different range. Please call Wendell ahead of time if this is of interest to you.

TRAP MEMO / FALL SCHEDULE

Posted by smith.wendell1@gmail.com on August 31, 2022 at 8:15 AM

Fellow Trap Shooters,

 

The current weather prediction is for a better evening on Wednesday (sunny) over Thursday evening (rain). So, for this week trap will be rescheduled to Wednesday, August 31, 2022.  To accommodate all shooters and take advantage of existing light, trap will start at 5:30pm.  While this may not be a good start time for some shooters it will allow us to process early arrivals, who may be finished shooting by the time later arrivals show up.  In any case, we hope to be able to continue shooting until the light dwindles.

 

Even if you arrive later you will be able to complete your shooting, so please consider attending.

 

Please note that trap is switched to Sunday afternoons, starting with the first Sunday after the Labour Day weekend.  This start date was chosen as some shooters compete in the Atlantic Competition offered each year during the long Labour Day weekend.  Details and confirmation on moving to Sunday will follow within the next week or so.

 

If you are interested in a trap shoot for this Sunday, please let us know well in advance and we will try to arrange it.

 

 

Regards,

Ed

We have been in discussions with the Town of Deer Lake with whom we share a Summer Student Employment program.

We Welcome our students again this week.
