Now Accepting PayPal Payments

posted Aug 9, 2021, 7:00 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.

As a convenience to our members, we are now accepting PayPal when you pay your membership fees. The RSO on duty will provide our PayPal account to you and then will need to see the confirmation message on your phone from PayPal to confirm that payment has been sent. Obviously cash or check is still the preferred method of payment but we acknowledge that some people just don't carry cash any more. At this point the only alternative to cash or check payment is PayPal. Credit and debit cards are still somewhere in the future...

Washing Up After Your Range Visit

posted Jul 6, 2021, 7:43 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated Jul 22, 2021, 10:00 AM ]

“The range master at my shooting range told me I should wash my hands after shooting. Why do I need to do this if I am using full metal jacket bullets?”

The biggest threat is lead poisoning. It isn’t something you need to be afraid of, but it is something you need to be aware of. Modern ammunition uses lead styphnate primers. Sometimes you may get tiny lead particles shaved off the bullets too, but the lead from primers is enough that you need to take precautions.

Always shoot on well-ventilated ranges and obviously outdoors is the best. Never eat, drink, smoke, or touch your face with your hands while shooting, or afterwards until you have washed your face and your hands with soap and cold water. Avoid using warm water as it will open your pores and therefore allow for more lead exposure. If you take these simple precautions, you can shoot regularly for decades without elevated lead levels.

Looking Forward to Normality (whatever that ends up being)

Well, 2020 is in our rear view mirror but still this Covid thing continues to impact our lives in numerous ways. One of those ways hits close to home and that is that we still are operating the range with far less than a full crew of Range Safety Officers. With Spring (hopefully) right around the corner and the return of our range hours to the summer schedule*, we'll be trying to operate the range for more hours each week* with that 'skeleton crew'. We certainly don't want to disappoint anyone wanting to do some shooting only to find the range closed due to lack of RSO's. We recommend that you call the range or check the calendar on our home page just to make sure that we are indeed open. Also, if you are feeling in a volunteer mood, talk with one of our RSO's about becoming an RSO for Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. If that is something that might interest you, read the "Range Officer Candidates" tab in the navigation bar at left. That page provides a brief description of duties and the type of people we are looking for. 

Happy shooting and keep your powder dry !

* Effective April 1st we return to our summer schedule which is Wednesday thru Friday - 9:00am to 6:30pm, Saturday and Sunday - 9:00am to 6:00pm

Current Range Status

posted Nov 1, 2020, 10:07 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.

Due to the number of recent posts dealing with Covid-19 we thought there may be some confusion regarding the current status of the range. As of November 1, 2020 here is a summary of where we stand:
*Face masks are NOT required on the firing line but we do encourage the use of face masks for everyone's well being.
*The club house building is open for one person/one family at a time.
*All benches are available for sighting-in/general shooting purposes. Benches are cleaned after each use.
*Spotting scopes, sand bags, hearing and eye protection are all available and are included in our cleaning procedures.
*From November 4th thru November 22nd the range is open seven (7) days a week from 9am to 4pm.

Deer Sight-In

posted Oct 9, 2020, 1:05 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated Nov 1, 2020, 9:48 AM ]

Greetings from Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. We hope you and your families are staying healthy and looking forward to a successful deer hunt this Fall. With all of the recent Covid data and the proclamation once again from Gov. Evers, we are suggesting that you should start considering getting your deer rifles sighted in sooner than later. We have not had to curtail the number of people utilizing the range yet but maintaining social distancing can become challenging when too many whitetail hunters wait until the last week to get their favorite deer rifles sighted in. So please, if you have the opportunity, try to visit the range sooner than later and preferably during the weekdays when the range is generally less busy. We still have active sanitation procedures in place and our experienced Range Safety Officers are looking forward to assisting you during your visit.

Tom (TJ) Driessen recently passed away at his home. TJ was President of Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. for 14 years from 1996 until 2010 and was Vice President under the first president and founder of the club, Ron Hammond. We ask that you keep TJ and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Yet Another Milestone Passed & Other News

posted Jun 15, 2020, 5:56 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated Jun 15, 2020, 5:59 PM ]

Hello once again. Sometimes I almost feel like I have a blog going here rather than an informational website. It is what it is and today we have more good news to share. You've seen the plexiglass partitions going up everywhere from banks to restaurants to nail salons (my wife told me). We have had the lexan sheets separating benches for quite some time already and after full consideration was given, we decided that all benches will be available for shooting. That means also that there is no longer a one hour time limit being imposed whenever people are waiting for a bench! It also means that our daily membership fee will return to its normal $7.00. We are still asking our members and visitors to observe proper social distancing. For KSC, that means that the Clubhouse will continue to be off limits, spotting scopes will remain stored. Sand bags and lead sleds are available upon request and, of course, our extensive cleaning regimen will continue to be followed.

In other news, all of the berms received significant facelifts recently. Nearly 200 yards of sand were trucked in to make the 25 and 50 yard berms higher as well as providing them with a needed refurbishing. The canopy over the firing line also got some attention in the form of insulated, reflective sheathing to reduce some of the summer sun's radiant heating. Just another example of how we continue to strive to make your visit to Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. as enjoyable as possible.

Before I end this update, let me just say that KSC makes every effort to keep our website up-to-date and accurate. Sometimes things happen however and we're unable to respond in as timely a manner as we'd like. The short version....it's always a good idea to call ahead to make sure the range is open and to confirm the hours of operation.

One Step Closer to full Operations

posted Jun 9, 2020, 7:25 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.

Greetings once more to our KSC family members. As the title implies, we are taking another step towards having the range operate with a full schedule. For some time now we have been open from Thursday thru Sunday during our 'normal' hours of 9am to 6:30pm on weekdays and 9am to 6pm on weekends. Effective June 10th, our phase in process continues and the range will be in operation on Wednesdays from 10am-2pm with possible extensions to the 2pm closing time depending upon the number of people utilizing the range. The Staff and Officers of Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone for their understanding and cooperation throughout these very interesting times. We are looking forward to having everyone join us for a day of shooting and enjoying our Wisconsin summer weather.

Range Operations Update

posted May 18, 2020, 11:51 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc.   [ updated May 18, 2020, 1:54 PM ]

Greetings all! These past couple of months have been interesting to say the least. With the government rescinding their stay-at-home orders, many businesses are reopening their doors and trying to get back to work. We too are trying to return to full operational status but that will not happen immediately. In the very short term, we will be open on Friday thru Sunday of the Memorial Day weekend and our hours will return to normal i.e. 9am to 6:30pm on Friday and 9am to 6pm on the weekend. Also, going forward, we will return the range to operations on Thursdays from 9am to 6:30pm and Fridays from 9:00am to 1:30pm. We will continue to observe social distancing and our enhanced cleaning protocol. The firing line will continue to utilize every other bench but there are no longer limitations on the number of people allowed on the firing line. The restrictions on available equipment and time limitations when people are waiting for a bench still apply. Thank you for working with us during these unusual times and we hope to return your favorite range to full operations in the very near future.

Coronavirus Situation (COVID 19)

While Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club, Inc. continues to closely monitor this very fluid situation, we want to remain focused on providing a safe and enjoyable shooting experience for our members and visitors. As we make decisions regarding the operations of the shooting facility, we will remain in constant communication with local, state and national officials responsible for protecting public health and security and we will continue to follow their guidance and consider their recommendations as we move forward.
