23 students successfully completed their CVCC sponsored WI DNR On-Line Hunter Safety Education Field Day on Saturday, April 25th. Students completed hands-on demonstrations of safe firearms handling, practice hunts, blood trailing, ammunition identification, tree stand safety, and life firing of .22 rifles and 20 ga. shotguns. After a presentation by Conservation Warden Shawna Stringham students completed written and practical certification tests with an over-all class average of 98%. Six students had perfect 100% scores.

The schedule for the morning has demonstration and practice sessions including live fire of .22 rifles and 20 ga. shotguns, practice hunts and blood trailing, crossing obstacles, and tree stand safety. There will be a DNR Conservation presentation at noon followed by student certification testing.
For those of us who enjoy “breaking things” with our guns, the upcoming trap shooting season will give us the opportunity to do just that, and in the company of some very fine fellows to boot! As a reminder, this year we will be shooting on Thursday evenings, starting at 6:00. The switch to Thursday was driven by the fact that other Clubs in the area were also shooting on Wednesdays, and the move to Thursday would allow their members to shoot at our Club without a conflict, and our members to shoot at their Club. We do not have teams or leagues, just an open shoot. We usually shoot Wobble Trap, which means the thrower oscillates both horizontally and vertically as it throws the targets. Quite a challenge!
