The members are comprised mostly of local Community members.
This Club firmly believes that the Youth of our community, are the backbone to safe, ethical, and responsible, use of firearms, for hunting and sport. And the WR&G Club has been sponsoring the FST class since it’s inception in 1955.
The WR&G Club, purchased land, and moved to it present location, Just SW of the City of Watertown in 1963. Prior to that, club members would trap shoot, on the North side of the City, just off Hwy 25, (south side), a bit East of the present High School. in the pasture of a farm. In 1963, the clubhouse was a ‘Quonset’ hut, (WWII Surplus). In 1990 the club built a new Clubhouse, thorough the generous help of many Local Community members.
This is now where the FST Classes are held.
The WR&GClub, consists of three trap fields, and a club house which is available for rental. On Wed. evenings, from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, usually from Memorial day to Labor Day, the club is open for Trap shooting. For teams, and Individual Trap shooting. The club is also open several Sundays for Team shoots, or Fun shoots. Also on the Last Thurs of the month, their is a fledging 20g league. (That is also a very good time for New or Youth shooters to come. Any other gauge is just fine, you ONLY, Have to shoot a 20g, if you are in the 20g League) You are welcome to stop out any Wed night, shoot trap, and look at the schedual, and perhaps shoot at one of the fun shoots, or get a ‘Trap” team together and enjoy the fun.
As well as being a sponsoring member of many local and state wildlife organizations, the DNR FST Class, the local 4-H club, (shooting at reduced rates), Pheasants Forever. This club also puts on a Spring Banquet, (usally first weekend in March), which is a little different than the ‘normal’ Wildlife organizations banquet, in which it is, “Kid Orientated”.
