We are kicking off this summer's camp Monday of next week. I have another 20 kids,most are returning students but I did pick up several new ones as well. I am really excited about this year as I think it will be even better than last year. The local sponsors really stepped it up this year!! We got GREAT ammo prices, to shoot at LOTS of steel targets on the 1/2 mile by 2 mile range! And as last year I have lots of dads asking when it is gonna be thier turn.
I made some changes this year: Streamlined the actually classroom portions meaning more time on the range. I up the 22 round count to 400 rounds per shooter to drive home the fundamentals before shooting thier hunting rifles.
I also included half a day of shotgun with each shooter banging away 75 rounds at clay targets throw from electric throwers.
And most importantly we moved the range to allow us to place our 20 plus steel targets (steel discs off a disc plow) every 100 yards from 300 - 800 and I also have one at 1000 and 1200 yards!!
I just hope the weather cooperates with us again this year.
