Shoot draws rifle, trap shooters

The Kettle Wildlife Association held a shoot for rifle and shotgun with novice and open classes.

Ken Hesketh looks on as Dale Eek takes a shot at the KWA trap line during a meat shoot last weekend.

The Kettle Wildlife Association (KWA) combined the turkey/fun shoots for both rifle and shotgun last weekend. The day brought out about a dozen competitors shooting rifle and another 27 shooting trap. There were both novice and open classes.

A terrific lunch was served, something the club has become well known for.The trap club held a shoot the preceding weekend that trap secretary Geoff Fern said brought in some new members.

There were 29 meat prizes awarded before lunchtime on the March 14 shoot.

Fern said that every discipline at the club is active: rifle, shotgun, pistol and archery. KWA has conservation as its primary focus.

Current KWA club president Les Best said he was pleased with the turnout. The club is planning another shoot for kids in early April.

This Saturday night the clubhouse will be a hive of activity as the KWA hosts the 2015 Wildlife Banquet. This popular event is undoubtedly sold out by now, so if you haven’t bought your ticket yet, you had better be well connected.
