This Sunday, Nov. 12 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, the Nessmuk Rod and Gun Club is hosting its second running deer shoot 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 third and last shoot will be on Sunday, Nov. 19.
The shooter with the highest score in the last round this Sunday will win a frozen turkey.
If enough young people, 17 and under participate, a special round for youth will be held during this running deer shoot. The youth with the highest score will win a gift certificate from Cooper’s Sporting Goods in Mansfield or from Barbers Sporting Goods Store in Sabinsville.
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.
