The Knox County Fish & Game Association is a non-profit organization
located at Beaver Lodge on the shores of beautiful Alford Lake in Hope, Maine.
This website is dedicated to our former, current, and future members,
and this page is the gateway to our entire site.
the range will be closed for November except for scheduled shoots,
and we're closing down the archery range.
There has been a LOT of talk about the upcoming question 3 ballot initiative. We have discussed it at the range and at the last couple of meetings, and at the October meeting we voted to support the NO ON 3 effort and voted to back our point of view with a $500 donation.
There is a whole lot of misinformation being circulated about this issue from the southern part of the state, funded heavily by out-of-state money that thinks any form of gun control is a good thing. It's not, and they aren't being honest about it. So to get the word out we have sent out an email notification to everyone on the range email list, and are including a link here so that you can see the NO ON 3 ad for yourself. Just click here for the youtube link. Check it out and tell your friends to check it out, chip in a donation if you can, and by all means get out and vote.
To donate online go to www.ubcbadforme.com or send a check ASAP to UBC BAD for ME, 205 Church Hill Road, Augusta, ME 04330. If you're skeptical, you can call Becky Morrell at the Sportsman's Alliance of Maine at 207-623-4589

We still need another 50 or so. Here are the detaiils...
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 $25, 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.
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."
