We would like to remind all the Island shotgunners to set aside Sunday, Nov. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the club’s annual Deer Shoot that takes place the day before deer season.

This event gives the hunters the opportunity to set their guns, try and win hams, turkeys and other prizes while preparing for this year’s deer season. Refreshments are also available throughout the day.
