SIGHT IN DAYS....Rifle, Archery and Crossbow

at the UPPER HUMBER ROD and GUN ASSOCIATION will be held at our club range at 177 Goose Arm Road in Deer Lake in September.

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 can and will be made available for target arrows only. We have 3 targets available that can be set up on a different range. Please call Wendell ahead of time if this interests you.

A small fee per rifle will be collected. A portion of the funds collected will be passed along to a charitable foundation. ALL shooters will have to register on site and non-members will pay a $6.00 fee to help cover costs, prior to any shooting activity. A portion of the fees collected will be forwarded along with our own contribution to one or more of the following; The Western Memorial Hospital Foundation, The Janeway Childrens Hospital or The Childrens Wish Foundation so that the entire community may benefits from our outdoor activity. Donations to these charitable organizations help us, our children and their families in a time of need.

While at the range Hearing and Eye protection is mandatory for everyone near any shooting area and must be worn at all times during any shooting activity. Park in a safe area always !

Although the club has a supply of the safety equipment on hand, that supply will depend on the numbers of people present.

Our UHRGA eye and hearing equipment must be sanitized/disenfected before and after each use according to health guidelines to ensure all safety measures are adhered to. If you bring your own, there will be no sharing unless it is with close family members within your own bubble. 

During this Covid-19 pandemic for safety reasons we request you bring along your own protective equipment and be prepared with protective gloves and hand sanitizers or disenfectants. The club does have a supply but bringing along your own would be great and will not take up unreasonable time for cleaning for our attending UHRGA members. 


Masks are required where safe distancing measures cannot be maintained. Covid-19 restrictions will apply as per the Dept. of Health guidelines. Our Covid-19 Level 2 Action Plan is posted on this page and at the range.

Please make every effort to bring along your own range safety equipment and personal precautionary protection.


Washrooms will not be accessable during our sight in times. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
