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.

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 email@example.com.
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.

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.
