Buster Day Fun Shoot -
Saturday Sept 19th

This shoot is dedicated to honoring Buster Day, Don's Dad and Josh's Grandpa. Buster, an avid hunter and clay shooter owned the land that Silver Willow is located on.

If you haven't noticed it before, there is a memorial plaque which is located between the green course station 10 and the duck pond.

It was perfect shooting weather for the Buster Day True-Pair, Josh did a great job setting up the course. We had a good turn out and are always happy to see how many shooters come out every year in honor of Buster.

Congratulations to Kevin Cole

HUNTING ETIQUETTE

AUTHOR: LUTHER CUTTS, HEAD INSTRUCTOR (NSCA LEVEL 3),

Etiquette, or courteous behavior, in the shooting sports is rooted in a desire to combine both safety and respect for fellow shooters. When everyone understands the fundamentals of etiquette, the enjoyment factor for the activity increases markedly. The following points are a representative, rather than an exhaustive, list of etiquette tips for bird game hunters. I am hopeful that after having read through the list, you will be able to add one or two more of your own.
