NESSMUK ROD AND GUN CLUB RUNNING DEER SHOOTS ARE ON SUNDAYS, OCT. 31, NOV. 7 & 14

The Nessmuk Rod and Gun Club is hosting three running deer shoots outdoors from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays, Oct. 31 and Nov. 7 and Nov. 14, rain or shine. The shoots will be at the club's outdoor range at 4646 Route 287, 6.5 miles south of Wellsboro in Delmar Township. Club members and the public are invited to participate. 

The shooter with the highest score in the last round of the day at each of the three running deer shoots will win a frozen turkey. "I thought the frozen turkeys might add a little interest to this year's running deer shoots," said Ray Rowland, organizer. 

A special round for youth, 17 and under will also be held during each of the three Sunday running deer shoots. "The youth with the highest score will win a gift certificate from Cooper's Sporting Goods in Mansfield," Rowland said. 

The running deer paper target is fixed to a four-foot by three-foot wooden frame that is mounted on wheels on a cable. The target is pulled along the cable from left to right at 100 yards from the shooting area. Only one shooter is allowed to be on the range per pass. Safety gear and eye and ear protection are required to participate. A sign-up will be held before each round of shooters. 

The fee for youth 17 and under, and for adults, 18 and older, is $2 per pass with a limit of two shots per pass. The fee will be split with 50 percent going to the shooter with the highest score per round and the other 50 percent to the club. 

For more information, call Ray Rowland at 1-607-857-4631.

Sorta be more apropriate if the prize was a couple of venison backstraps. But even so. I will humbly accept some tough old turkey.
