La Crosse Area Deer Hunter’s Sight In 2017

Gun Deer Season 2017 – Coulee Region Place to Shoot

November 4th & 5th, 2017, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Covered Firing Points or shoot from inside the new building.

Gunsmiths and Competitive Shooters to help with sight in.

Come out and help support the LaCrosse Rifle Club.  Our members are active in training and education programs thru gun safety and education classes, the shooting sports and promoting pro-gun legislation and education in Wisconsin.


$5.00 Donation Per Firearm  –  Includes:

  • Targets, Benches, Rests & Ear Plugs.
  • Sight In from 50 to 300 Yards.
  • Controlled safe environment.
  • Qualified Staff to analyze and help.
  • Combined knowledge/experience of 200+ years.




For all the reasons below, you should take your gun out and shot it before the big day. Accuracy and point of impact could be affected from year to year.  Where you sight in is up to you but it is best to do it early enough so if something needs fixing there is time to get it done.

The first shot thru a perfectly clean/oiled barrel will shoot low.

Different brands/loads/lots of ammo may shoot better groups or different points of impact.

Scopes can go bad; get bumped, screws come loose and springs can weaken. 

Wood can warp and crack over time, push on barrel, change point of impact.

For questions, contact us thru the LaCrosse Rifle Club web page.

Success at Camp Perry!

A report from Mike Stewart:

We had a very successful trip to Ohio at the National matches, Wisconsin Juniors finished first place in the Six-Man Junior Team Match and also first place in the Junior Two-Man Team Match.  Additionally, we had 4 teams place in the top-twenty at the two-man team match.   This year’s matches were extremely challenging with the strong winds that you can only experience at Camp Perry (where else do you put on 4 minutes of wind at 300 yards?).  In those conditions, watching the kids clean their 2-300 yard targets through my spotting scope is both fascinating and impressive to watch, especially considering they don’t get sighting shots.

Bob Burns had a great time shooting the rattle battle match and he had some of the best scores on the Wisconsin adult team.

If you see Riley, Sam and Bob please congratulate them on their accomplishments.

Next meeting: this Wednesday, August 2nd, 8:00pm.
