Deer Feeding:  Historically, we have given a high priority to helping deer survive the harsh Keweenaw winters.  A large portion of our funds is dedicated for winter deer survival.  As sportsmen, we have observed first hand the benefits of this feeding program.  Due to the extreme winter conditions, the Keweenaw deer population is low.  The feeding program helps keep the herd at a socially acceptable level.  See the Keweenaw Island Coalition web site for more information.


Trap Range:  We offer trap shooting Thursday evenings at 6:00 pm, from early April through late October.  We usually run an informal trap team shooting competition.

Rifle Range:  We maintain a rifle range.  A covered shooting area with bench rests accommodates rifle and handgun enthusiasts.  Target stands with sand berm backgrounds are placed at various intervals up to 200 yards. Targets and sand bags are available on site.  Monday nights at about 6:00 pm, throughout the summer, is a time to bring a rifle or pistol for some friendly competition.

Civilian Marksman Program (CMP):  The Civilian Marksmanship Program promotes firearms safety training and rifle practice for all qualified U.S. citizens with special emphasis on youth.

Activities:  We have a deer feeding program,  offer Hunter Safety for youth, have Monday evening rifle and pistol shoots, have Thursday evening trap shooting, hold an annual Fishing Derby, assist the Boy Scouts, and have a business meeting on the last thursday of the month.

Donations to Community Activities:  As a member of the community, we give back to the community.  Among other worthwhile causes, we have donated to the boy scouts, area fire departments, the alcohol free graduation party, and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Maintenance of the Club House:  The clubhouse is an historic log building situated on 120 acres of partially wooded sandy soil, leased from the Village of Lake Linden, see the picture at the top of the page.  The area is famous for its wild blueberries.  The property is located near Houghton County's Rice Lake.  As one might expect, it takes a lot of man-hours and money to maintain this building.

Fund Raising:  We hold the "Annual Rice Lake Fishing Derby" and sell "Keweenaw Island Coalition" buttons to raise funds for our various activities and obligations.  Information about the button sales and the Keweenaw Island Coalition can be obtained at the Keweenaw Island Coalition web site, given below.  A link to our partner in the Keweenaw Island Coalition is given below.

History: The details of the beginning history of our club are very sketchy.  There were bits and pieces organized in 1913, but it really organized in 1921.  On October 18, 1944 a meeting was held at the Gordon Hillenbrand's home, where it was voted to acquire the Boys Scout Camp from the Lake Linden Village.  This takeover occurred on November 3, 1944.  The deer feeding program was started with just two feeding stations.  Today that number is over eighteen, with many participants and volunteers.  The 50th Anniversary of our club was celebrated in 1973.  The club played an active role in the 100-year celebration of Lake Linden in 1985.  Our club was responsible for hosting the dance held on Saturday at the old ice arena.  We were able to raise $5,000 to help defray the cost of the centennial celebration.  We are active with the boy scouts, providing the clubhouse and other facilities, for their various activities.  The clubhouse has become our home.  We have leased and used the clubhouse for 62 years.  Our current lease expires in 2020.
