The range will be locked up every day at 4:00 until further notice. Why? Because those using the range late in the day have not only left the range looking like a pigsty, but have erected overly tall target stands, attached targets to structures on the pistol range and shot up the buildings. One way or another, this behavior has to stop. We have the rules posted for a reason–break them and you’re out.

Don’t like it?  Me neither. Grousing won’t help. Ideas?

FYI...the Pistol Range to the right of the clubhouse is (suprisingly enough) for pistols–and only on the targets that are already in place. If you want to shoot your own targets, use the range to the left of the clubhouse. That's what it's for. Do not attach targets to the fencing or structures on the Pistol Range.

Here are the complete details:

 Knox County Fish & Game Education Programs

Knox County Fish & Game provides a variety of educational programs for our members and the public.  We call our Educational Programs “R3” for Recruitment, Retention and Reactivation.  There has been a significant decline over the past several years in people participating in outdoor recreation activities especially hunting and other shooting sports as well as fishing. There is a nationwide R3 effort to increase the number of people using the outdoors for recreational activities. We believe it is important to provide opportunities for people to learn these lifetime outdoor skills in a safe, non-threatening environment with our team of volunteer instructors.

Interested? Contact Jasmine Greenleaf at 441-3270 or jasmine.a.greenleaf@maine.gov.

Youth Programs

Our youth programs are for youngsters ages 10-15.  A parent or legal guardian must attend also attend.  We offer and aquatic based program and a shooting sports program. 

The aquatic program provides instruction and experience in kayaking and canoeing on Alford Lake.  We also provide instruction in fishing skills and the next day those who desire will meet at the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine’s Youth and Family Outdoor Facility to fish for trout in their stocked pond.  In addition, each participant will receive instruction in outdoor responsibility, safety, survival and map and compass. 

The shooting sports program provides instruction in .22 rifles and archery.  Participants receive individual instruction in small groups.  The outdoor skills and responsibility component is also a part of this program. The safe handling and use of firearms and bows are the number one priorities of this program.

Ladies Day at the Range

Ladies day is a popular program offered twice a year to ladies 18 years of age or older.  Participants are introduced to the safe handling and use of rifles, shotguns, handguns and bow and arrow. The program is limited to 12 participants and instructors provide individual instruction to shooters in small groups.

Maine Inland Fisheries & Wildlife Courses

Our Beaver Lodge facility is an ideal location for the IF&W safety classes and is the primary location for most Knox County classes.  Classes are offered in Hunting, Bowhunting, Trapping, Crossbow, Boating, ATV and Snowmobile.  Information on class requirements and availability can be found on the IFW webside www.maine.gov/ifw/programs-resources/safety-courses/index.html.  Our Regional Coordinator is Jasmine Greenleaf who can be contacted at 441-3270 or jasmine.a.greenleaf@maine.gov.

There is no such thing as being too safe or having too much training. Fortunately for members, we have our own range that's open year 'round, and our weekend shoots are a great place to learn. Click here for more info, and if you're not already a member.

 

Dana's Pavilion is up!

That's Sarah removing the strap, and the timber framer, John. there to the right.

The roof sheathing has since gone on and the shingles will follow come decent weather.

Personalized Chairs

We still need another 50 or so. Here are the details...

You can honor a past or present friend or family member while helping us replace our aging folding chairs at the same time. For a donation of only $35, you can order a chair to be personalized and added to those in the main lodge. Don't buy a chair and donate it–we'll take care of that so they will all be the same–and then we'll add the hand lettered script to personalize it as per your wishes. Of course, some might just want to donate without having chairs personalized–that's okay too, and we would appreciate the sentiment. Think about it. It's a nice thing to do and it helps your lodge at the same time.

Sharons chair

This is one of the first hand lettered chairs.

A note to those not all that familiar with computers...

The pages on our site change on a regular basis as new information and photos are added. Now you'd think that clicking on the refresh button in your browser would bring up the latest page, right? Not necessarily. Like your lazy brother-in-law, computers will take the easy way way out when they can. Unless you insist, they will reach for a page out of your computer's cache first, giving you the very same page back that you saw the last time you visited. But you can beat that infernal machine there in front of you. Just hold down the shift key and click the refresh button. That compels the computer to go clear back to our server in Arizona (no kidding) and retrieve our latest page. Then you will have the very latest. It's a habit you want to get into–saves us having to tell you, "Yes we updated the range schedule more than a month ago."
