Hunter Sight In Days

For 2017, Hunter Sight In Days will be held on the new range property.  There are directions below.  It's only about a mile away from the old location, at

28716, Prairie Lake Road, Grand Rapids MN 55744.

There will be covered firing points and a max distance of 300 yards.  The dates and times are:

Oct 21 and 22  9:00 - 5:00

Oct 23 through 27  12:00 - 5:00

Oct 28 through Nov 3  9:00 - 5:00

Nov 4 - you should be out hunting!  It's opener!

Shooting will stop at 5:00 PM, regardless.  Please get there as early as you can on the last couple of days before deer opener, as there can be quite a crowd.  Itasca Gun Club provides bench rests, chairs, sandbags, targets and a volunteer to help you spot your shots on the targets.

Hunter Sight In Days are open to the public.  The fee is only $3.00 per gun, and you can sight in multiple guns.  Some ranges charge a few bucks and only allow you three shots.  Volunteers will be there to help you spot hits and make adjustments to your scope or sights.  There will be an office on site for purchasing shooting tickets, raffle tickets or fired brass, plus for warming if it's really cold out.  There will be a portable toilet, but you have to warm that yourself.

Those who volunteer to help hunters sight in should plan to sign up for four hour shifts, 9:00 - 1:00 and 1:00 - 5:00.  For the period of Oct 23 through Oct 27, please plan for five hour shifts, from 12:00 - 5:00.

To sign up for a shift, please call Joe on the club cell phone @ (218) 256-9431 or send an email to  Steve at

Please consider joining the Itasca Gun Club while you're here!  We've built a great new range, and membership fees can help with continuing construction of pistol and small bore ranges.  The Itasca Gun Club is a 501(c)4 non-profit, and we have members from many counties across the state.   You can have a lot of year-round shooting opportunities for $30 a year, which is about the cost for two hours of shooting at a metro range.

We host a variety of competitive, casual and just fun indoor and outdoor shooting opportunities.  They're open to the public, and we're family oriented.  We have a 100, 200 and 300  yard range for rifle and pistol, and will be building a 1,000 yard range as we move forward.  We will also be building two outdoor pistol ranges and an outdoor smallbore 100 yard range.  Check the Indoor Shooting and Outdoor Shooting tabs above.

We put on regular classes, as noted on our calendar.  We have certified trainers for pistol carry permits, DNR youth firearm safety and DNR adult firearm safety (sometimes needed for hunting in other states.)  For DNR firearm safety, we hold both the traditional 16 hour classroom/field classes, and the new web/field day classes.
