Wingshooter Workshops As part of its hunter educa- tion efforts, the Kimball Rod and Gun Club is pleased to introduce a series of Wingshooter Workshops this August. Open to the public, the workshops focus on specific shooting skills and include Upland Bird and Waterfowl presentations. Utilizing a grant from NRA Foundation, the Club has devel- oped specific shooting sessions with young and novice shot- gun shooters in mind, providing an opportunity to practice fire- arm safety and develop practi- cal shooting skills before steppmg into the field. "The workshops are designed with a variety of target presen- tations to mimic real world sit- uations. They offer the repeti- tive skill-building exercises that are key to developing better pre- pared, safe, and ethical hunters," said workshop coordinator Greg Kaizer. Several shooting stations will be offered, and will include basic incoming and outgoing targets, as well as more difficult targets such as crossing and overheads. With varying degrees of difficulty, the program will be good practice and a lot of fun for even the most sea- soned shooters. Upland Bird sessions will be offered 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 22. Waterfowl sessions will be offered 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29. For more information, contact Greg Kaizer, (320) 224-4288, or visit .
