You are invited to attend a "Hunters Shoot" at Powell River B.C. on May 14, 2016. This is a shoot that provides great practical shooting practice and a chance to visit with members of the Powell River Rod and Gun Club.


You must supply:

*ear and eye protection.

*one hunting rifle(any caliber).

*one box(20) cartridges

*Five dollars entry fee.


This shoot moves along very quickly; each squad will have 7 shooters. The first squad starts at 10:00 AM. Format is : 5 shots @ 200 yards Bench-no-rest, 5 shots @ 100 yards sitting, 5 shots @ 150 yards leaning and 5 shots @ 50 yards standing BUT the target is running across the range.


Top prize is the coveted "TOP GUN " hat.


They will be providing a free hamburger lunch for all guests at our clubhouse at noon.   After lunch we are going to hold a 200 yard BENCH REST shoot.


The Bench Rest Shoot is a separate shoot the entry fee is five dollars for each rifle.  This Bench Rest competition has three categories - Target rifle(heavy barrel), hunting rifle (light barrel) or Rim fire rifle(shot at 100 yards). A RIFLEMAN hat goes to the winner of each category.


There a few unserviced (just like hunting) camping places at the club. They hold a trap shoot every Sunday at noon and you”re most welcome to attend that as well.


There are many motels and a few serviced campsites nearby. We will try to assist you as best we can. If you are coming from the Island we will provide transportation to and from the ferry if you are on foot but please let us know.
