Rifle and Pistol Ranges are open from 8:00 am until dusk daily. You must be a member to use ranges. Ranges are closed on special occasions. Please check calendar for dates.
The BCC is a dedicated group of individuals promoting the protection and propagation of fish and game in a safe, sportsman-like and law-abiding manner. We encourage young and old alike to get involved with shooting and outdoor sports through our many safety programs and training in the proper care and use of hunting and fishing equipment. Our hope is to maintain for the use of the community our ranges and reserves for the purpose of developing characteristics of good fellowship, self discipline and self-reliance essential to good sportsmanship, true patriotism and citizenship.
Hope you all are enjoying the fall colors and cool weather while you have hung up the trap gun and brought out your favorite hunting gun. I hope the season includes large bag limits and enjoyable times. I would like to thank all who have helped this season with making our club one of the best in the state.
While things have seemed to quiet down at the club, we are not completely done, as we still have Sunday morning open shooting going on as well as the pace is picking up with the rifle range as everyone eyes that chance for a trophy buck. Remember, the range is $2.00 per shooter and is open from 8:00am till dusk most days. Please refer to the calendar on the club website for exact closure dates.
Mark your calendar for the upcoming BCC Banquet on February 18th, which will be held at the City Inn in Berlin. Back again is the 10-item prize board for which tickets should be out soon. Please tell your friends of this event and let’s fill the hall. This is one of the biggest fund raisers that we run for the year. The success of the club begins with you!
Finally, to all of you, the board and myself wish you a safe and fun-filled hunting season. Happy Thanksgiving to all and hope to see you soon for Winter Archery and Winter Trap League starting after the first of the year in 2017.
The Board of Director's Meeting Minutes are now being posted on the website under the About tab, or click HERE to view meeting minutes for this year.
Please watch for the November/December newsletter mailing soon (or click HERE to see it on the website). ALL current members will be mailed a newsletter, with emails resuming the following newsletter (if requested).
Inside this newsletter you will find a listing, with explanations, for many of our activities in which you may volunteer. If all +1,600 of you pitch in and volunteer to help with just one thing that is listed on the insert, the board members could spend less time themselves making your club successful. And, of course, volunteer hours count toward next year's pheasants or shooting cards. Not to mention the feeling of satisfaction for a job well done!

Hunter's Education - Pheasant Hunt
The fall Hunter's Ed class participated in a pheasant hunt on October 22nd. Thanks to the Schroeder Farm for hosting this event, the Board Directors who picked the birds up from the DNR in Poynette, the guides and dogs for providing a wonderful learning experience and especially the youth whom participated. Some were successful in taking a bird while others hopefully enjoyed the experience!
The Target Terminators wrapped up their season with a bust-up party recently, where they celebrated their many accomplishments. Four young men were honored for their epic year--Blair Tischaefer, Trent Weiss, Alex Konen, and Jackson Davey. Alex Konen shot his first 200 straight at the AIM Nationals held in Sparta. The other three young men each shot their first 100 straight in ATA competition this summer.
There were many individual AND team accomplishments by these fine young shooters, and we'll share more of those stories this upcoming winter.
Congratulations to the members of the Target Terminators (and the CWYTL) for representing our club so well. All members should be very proud of how well the youth represent the Berlin Conservation Club.
