The final squirrel and rabbit hunt of the season took place February 25, 2017. The day started off nice but by noon there were heavy down pours of rain which stopped most squirrel movement.

 For this hunt teams were able to either enter for point score or total weight. Eight teams(16 people) entered the point score and only one team (2 people) entered for weight. There were two youth entered. A total of 27 squirrels were taken.

The weight division only entry was the team of Jeremy and Jack Rosignal with three squirrels that weighted 4 pounds with the lunker being 1.37 pounds.
 
The point scoring division had five teams enter 24 squirrels to be scored. With 13  head shots and 10 body shot and 1 more than one hole (shogun pellets). The following are the results:

First Place went to the team of Phil Jensen and Barry Turner with nine squirrels (8 head shot and one more than one hole, shotgun)  for a total of 16 1/2  points.

Second Place went to the team of John Hurlbert and Chad Schedske with nine squirrels (4 head shot 5 body shot) for a total of 13 points.

Results from the January 22, 2017 Gray squirrel hunt

The first squirrel hunt of the season went well. The day started off foggy and it got very warm for January with temperatures getting into the fifties. This may have caused the squirrels to sleep in as most of the action was reported to be in the early afternoon.

  This also was the first point system scoring hunt. There were 15 teams entered  with  a total of 30 people of which three were youths.

Six teams entered a total of 22 squirrels with 16 head shots and 6 body shot. The following are the results:

First Place went to the team of Brian Barclay and Tyler Wodard with six squirrels (5 head shot and one body shot)  for a total of 11 points.

Second Place went to the team of Eric Riegel and Tom Grasek with six squirrels (4 head shot two body shot) for a total of 10 points.

Third Place went to the team of Dale and Luke Allen with four squirrels (all head shot) for a total of 8 points.

The club is once again collecting squirrel tails and will be sending them to Mepps lures after the final hunt of the season. The club provided chili, venison noodle bake and chips and dip. For anyone who showed up to have their squirrels scored.  A good time was had by all.

TOP GUN LONG RANGE BENCH REST SHOOT



Attention members. Are you a long range shooter? Well there will be a Long range bench rest shoot on MONDAY JUNE 20, 2016.

Be at the Kuneytown range starting at 6:00 pm and ending when there is not enough light to shoot.

You will need to bring your own rifle and ammo. However remember that

High power caliber rifles (those that have a muzzle FT/pounds of more than 3,700 as well as any caliber full copper jacketed/armor piercing bullets ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE FIRED/USED ON THE RANGE.

The club will supply the targets and will have sand bags but if you want to bring your own front rest or bipod you can.

The shoot will consist of three shots at 250 yards in a timed two minutes. The rear of the rifle must be supported by your shoulder. You may also bring a spotting scope so you can see where your shots are hitting or you can have a spotter do that for you. The three shots must be done within the two minutes. Reshoots will be allowed if time permits,

There is no cost to shoot.

You must be a club member or a youth shooter. Anyone under the age of eighteen is considered a youth shooter.


THE RANGE HAD BEEN UPGRADED WITH METAL BULLET BACK STOP\TRAPS




We now have brand new metal bullet backstops/traps. They were expensive to procure and install. We do not want any holes in them and want them to last a long time. Therefore all high power caliber rifles or pistols (those that have a muzzle FT/pounds of more than 3,700 as well as any caliber full copper jacketed/armor piercing bullets ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE FIRED/USED ON THE RANGE.


Should you have the need to sight in a rifle or pistol with more foot/pounds than allowed contact the club President and we may be able to make arrangements for you to use the range but not the metal bullet back stops.


There will also be a sign in book inside the range building. Anyone useing the range must sign in.

Failure to adhere to any of the range rules can result in termination of your club membership and/or a monetary assessment for repair of the damaged metal bullet back stops.

Work day to rebuild tragets



Thanks to all who showed up and worked hard to repair the gun range. Many folks showed up throughout the day to replace the targets with safer and more environmentally friendly targets, A big thank you to Whitetails Unlimited for the grant to make this work happen!
