La Crosse Rifle Club, Inc. wants to thank all those who participated in the hunter’s sight in event this past weekend. The members present sincerely hope we were able to help and educate those who attended. The covered firing points kept all dry on this raining Sunday.
During sight in, we found several issues with loose screws on newly mounted scopes. We also were able to adjust some iron sights and do a little gun maintenance. A big thank you if you made an extra donation to the club for extra services performed, it goes to the club for range improvements.
This event happens exactly 2 weekends before WI opening Gun Season, roughly the first weekend in November. If you missed it this year, perhaps we can see you next year.

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.
GOOD LUCK THIS COMING HUNTING SEASON!
