Appleseed Rifle Shoot Event – September 28 & 29
The next Appleseed shoot will be held at our club on September 28 & 29. This is a marksmanship clinic, and is designed to make anyone (especially the young and beginner shooters) a better rifle shot through enhanced shooting techniques. And for the experienced shooters, this is a chance for you to earn your Rifleman’s Patch. It’s a lot harder to qualify for the rifleman patch than you might think! Instruction is provided by trained range officers. Shooting will occur from the 3 common shooting positions, prone, sitting and free hand. Expect to shoot more than 300 rounds over two days, so the .22 long rifle is the preferred cartridge. During breaks in the action, they will tell you the true story of the earliest days of our nation, including the events of April 19, 1775, “the shot heard around the world.” You may be surprised by some of the details you may not have learned in your history class at school.
For more information about the event and costs, please go to their website, appleseedinfo.org. Or you can contact club member and event organizer Dan Dretske at (608) 317-1933.

As of January 1st, 2017 the club property will no longer be open for hunting by members or non-members. Currently the club property is enrolled in the open managed forest land program, and thus we have to allow hunters. There have been problems with hunters not knowing where the club property lines are, and they end up trespassing on our neighbors property. As of January 1, the club property will no longer be open for hunting.
