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.

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 Children's Hospital or The Children's Wish Foundation so that the entire community may benefit 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 !
