Our Hunter Sight In Days is a two week event, open to the public.  Hunters may sight in rifles / hunting handguns while our volunteers help spot your shots, adjust your sights or scope and maintain safe conditions at and behind the firing line.  $3 per firearm.  You may sight in more than one firearm, and you are allowed to shoot enough to safely get sighted in.

Distance options in yards:  25, 50, 100, 200, 300

There are raffle tickets available for $2 each for chances to win  firearms and hunting items.  Only $2 for a chance to win:

  1. A bolt action Winchester XPR rifle in .350 Legend from L&M Supply and the Itasca Gun Club
  2. A semi-automatic Ruger 10-22 rifle in .22 rimfire from L&M Supply and the Itasca Gun Club

Very basic scope mounting/repair services are available for free.  Fired brass is available for purchase by the pound, sorted by caliber. 

Saturday Oct 22 - 9:00 - 1:00 and 1:00 - 5:00

Sunday Oct 23 - 9:00 - 1:00 and 1:00 - 5:00

Monday - Friday Oct 24 through Oct 28 - 12:00 - 5:00

Saturday - Friday Oct 29 - Nov 4 - 9:00 - 1:00 and 1:00 - 5:00

Nov 5 - you should be out hunting!  It's opener!

There will be an office on site for purchasing shooting tickets, raffle tickets for firearms, and fired brass.  If it's really cold out, the office is available for warming up.  There will be an ADA accessible portable toilet (Porta-Potty), but you have to warm that yourself.

Shooting will stop at 5:00 PM, period.  Please get there as early as you can on the last couple of days before deer opener, as there can be quite a crowd.  Itasca Gun Club provides 9 bench rests, chairs, sandbags, targets and a volunteer to help you spot your shots on the targets.

"Sight In Days" is an important part of IGC's annual fundraising. Everyone out there helping is a volunteer.  If you're already a member, and don't feel you should have to pay $3.00 to sight in, then do that a few weeks early before all those volunteers show up and give their time to the club.

Those who volunteer to help hunters sight in should plan to sign up for four - hour shifts, 9:00 - 1:00 and 1:00 - 5:00.  For the period of Oct 24 through Oct 28, please plan for five - hour shifts, from 12:00 - 5:00.

To sign up for a shift, please call Bob at (218) 256-9431 or send an email to Steve at  igcsightin@yahoo.com

2022 Volunteer Schedule

Duties of Sight In Volunteers And a description of the procedures for guests who are sighting in.

Please consider joining the Itasca Gun Club while you're here!  We've built great new rifle and pistol ranges, and our membership fees are very low compared to other ranges.  Membership fees can help with continuing construction of a planned small bore range and indoor range.  The Itasca Gun Club is a 501(c)4 non-profit, and we have members from many counties across the state, and a number of other states.   You can have a lot of year-round shooting opportunities for $30 a year, which is about the cost for an hour or two of shooting at a metro range.  Regular family memberships are $30/year, and the same membership is $18 if you're over 60 years old.

We host a variety of competitive, casual and just fun indoor and outdoor shooting opportunities.  They're open to the public, and we're family oriented.  We have a 100, 200 and 300  yard range for rifle and pistol, and will be building a 1,000 yard range as we move forward.  We have a completed outdoor pistol range, and are planning for an outdoor smallbore yard range and a new indoor range.  Check the Indoor Shooting and Outdoor Shooting tabs above for more information.

We put on regular classes, as noted on our calendar.  We have certified trainers for pistol carry permits, DNR youth firearm safety and DNR adult firearm safety (sometimes needed for hunting in other states.)  For DNR firearm safety, we hold both the traditional 16 hour classroom/field classes, and the new web/field day classes.
