Deep Portage Between the Trees Side by Side Shoot
June 8, 2013
The Event: Deep Portage Learning Center & the Deep Portage Chapter of the Ruffed Grouse Society announce a celebration of the pleasures of handling, seeing and shooting fine side by side upland bird guns. A 100-target birdhunter designed sporting clays course is the main event. Side games will be available. Targets may be engaged with any bore, limited to a maximum of 1-1/8 oz. of #7 or smaller shot. Shotguns must be of side by side configuration.
Continental breakfast, lunch and a Banquet dinner included.
Registration is limited to 50 shooters and the cost is $150. Guests may attend and eat for $25. Alternative activities will be available for guests. Overnight accommodations are available. Please inquire.
The Philosophy: The Deep Portage Side by Side Shoot is intended to be a chance for those who enjoy double shotguns and bird hunting to gather and enjoy each others company while having some fun shooting. Although there will be awards for the winner and other participants based on the Lewis Class system, the shoot is best viewed as a non-competitive event or what is commonly called a "Fun Shoot."
Proceeds from the Shoot: All after-expense proceeds from the event will be used to support Deep Portage Hunting and Shooting Sports education programs.
