This Sunday, Oct. 18 from 1 to 4 p.m., rain or shine, the Nessmuk Rod and Gun Club is hosting the first of three running deer shoots at the club’s outdoor range at 4646 Route 287, 6.5 miles south of Wellsboro in Delmar Township.
The other two shoots will be on Sunday, Nov. 8 and Nov. 22. Club members and the public are invited to participate.
The shooter with the highest score in the last round during this Sunday’s running deer shoot will win a frozen turkey. A special round for youth, 17 and under, will also be held with the one with the highest score winning 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 at 100 yards from the shooting area. 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.
