The Dixon Game and Conservation Club is offering five hunting licenses and is hosting a free shoot next month.
Five Lifetime California Lifetime Hunting Licenses are up for grabs at the Crab and Shrimp Club’s annual feed on February 3 at Dixon May Fairgrounds.
The license is given to “junior” hunters who request the free drawing before January 29.
To do this, a young hunter who has a valid California junior hunting license must send a letter to the hunting club asking to be included in the drawing.
This request must be mailed to Dixon Game Club, 250 West Mayes St., Dixon, CA, 95620, and received by the club no later than January 29, to be included in the crab draw.
There were relatively few entries on Wednesday for this multi-hundred dollar prize.
Bob Dohr Memorial Clay Shoot
In February, the club will host a free shoot open to the public at 9 a.m. on February 11 at the Birds Landing Preserve and Sporting Clays facilities, 2099 Collinsville Road in Birds Landing.
The club offers to pay up to 150 shooters (you don’t need to be a club member) to be part of the first annual Bob Dohr Memorial Clay Shoot.
All adults must be accompanied by a child to be able to shoot freely.
No special license is required for adults or children, but each must provide their individual eye and ear protection and 50 rounds of shotgun shells per shooter.
Hunting rifles can be rented on site.
This is an effort by the club to have a fun, safe and family-oriented day by promoting shooting sports.
The shooting range is set up at various shooting stations and target sites, with the clay birds being thrown from different angles.
Prizes, a raffle and a free barbecue will follow the shooting.
To register, you and your family (group), call 678-9155, leave a message and a club member will respond, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reservations are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
