Custer Rod & Gun Club (CR&GC) April 2024 Activities

Well folks its that time of year again to start working on spring projects. For those who might be getting an itchy trigger finger we want to remind everyone that the club has several activities open to members and non-member including Action Pistol, Archery, Trap, Skeet, and 5-Stand. Already we’ve shot a couple Trap and Skeet rounds. The Trap range is open on Tuesdays at 5pm, Skeet range on Sundays at 4pm, and Archery will be held on Fridays out at the Spotted Eagle Recreation Area. Action Pistol is held on Thursdays at 6pm out at the Sunday Creek Range.

As always matches and events are weather dependent and we do try to post updates to the Custer Rod and Gun Club facebook page.

Welcome to Spotted Eagle Day – May 4th

On Saturday May 4th the Custer Rod and Gun Club is planning on holding a Welcome to Spotted Eagle Day running from 10am to 3pm. We are planning on having the 5-Stand range set-up as well as the Archery range.

Ducks Unlimited is also planning on holding a Trap Shoot with prizes and a raffle (Flyer Below). The adult prize is a SKB HS300 20 gauge Shotgun, the kids prize is a Chiappa M1-22, and the raffle is for a Taurus TX22 Ducks Unlimited Edition. For more information on the prizes and the raffle contact Jeff Faycosh (406)-951-2987.

We are also trying to get a couple more things lined out for that day and as soon as we have them squared away we will post them to the Club facebook page and webpage.
