Re: Minnesota

Let me know if Itasca County Gun Club needs any help with range construction, might be able to lend a hand. Hibbing has a 600 yard range and Virginia has a 500 yard range.

    Both Hibbing and Virginia are membership clubs. I can always bring a guest in, that's not a problem, except if I'm working at the Hibbing Trap Club, which is located on the same complex as the Hibbing Rifle Club.

    It's about a 1 1/2 miles off of HYW 53/169 about 9 miles north of Virginia.

    I plowed ours out, but the county decided to plow a 6 ft high snow berm where the county road spur turns to go to the radio tower. They do this to turn the snowmobilers down the snowmobile trail and keep them off a 100 yard section of road that connects back up with the snowmobile trail.

    Trying to get a couple of guys together to use polac picks to break up the bank so I can bust through it to drive to the range and plow it out again.

    Our winter shooting consist mostly of coffee and BS in the club house with some shooting.

    Our snowshoe shoot is in a couple of weeks and with my bad knee, walking the mile into the range is not a pleasant prospect.
