Develop or enhance public archery ranges through DNR grant

4 posts in this topic

This is a really cool program!  I'm skeptical I could get matching funds for the program, but it would sure be cool to add an archery range to our community.

Having a near by outdoor range is awesome.  The one that is near my house in St. Paul gets a lot of use by a very diverse group of people.  I see dads with their kids, teenage girls, groups of high school boys, guys up to 70 years old, and everything in between.  

I've been especially impressed with the groups of high school boys that I've run into. I've shown up when it was just me and one of those groups at the range.  When I showed up they were playing music pretty loudly and goofing off and normally you'd think aw man I've got to deal with these guys while I'm trying to get in some range time.  But instead the minute I walked in they stopped messing around and got back to shooting and apologized for the music and were going to turn it off.  I stopped them and told them to crank the music back up and have a good time as long as it doesn't bother anyone else that shows up.  Not often any more that you have a group of teenage boys show proper consideration for those around them.   

Having these ranges and giving these younger guys and girls a free place to shoot within the city is important.  Without access to the ranges these kids are off doing something else and the sport suffers.

The outdoor range I go to could use some new targets as some are getting pretty well worn.  Hopefully the city that maintains it looks into these funds and takes advantage.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
