Beginning stages of fun shoot. I know covid is still going on but i hope all is clear by spring so we can have another fun shoot. This time with porta potty again and maybe i can convince some BBQ friends to stop out and cook for us. Bon fire possibly night before if people wish to camp out night before or day of shooting. Plenty of room to tent or rv camp out here. Again this i all if covid threat is over by then. I am getting the fun shoot itch already.

getting closer to planning time, few months away. looks like weather will be the true deciding factor, hopefully virus is down by march, thinking the sooner the better only need a calm sunny day now and no snow. thinking once we get into the 50-60 range it will be shooting time

Great to hear Brandon. Maybe we'll get lucky and get one of those nice 60-70° days in March.

I still can't believe you're that close to the edge of Illinois and haven't made it out past the guards...

Good morning. I would like to know more about this shoot. I'm located about 15 miles south of Rockford. Will it be a 1 day deal?

I want to come to this one and maybe try some of the Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail at the same time.

I'm trying to reply to the poll but not having any success. I would like to choose April and May as my two months. I just realized this was an old poll, so maybe it's closed.
