Youth - Hunter Education Camp 
Dan Gauthier Memorial Sponsorship


The GOFFSTOWN FISH AND GAME ASSOCIATION, in memory of Dan Gauthier, would like to send a youth to the Barry Conservation Camp for a one week Hunter Education session this summer.

Applicants must be between the ages of 12 -16 at the time of the camp session and live in the Goffstown, Weare, and New Boston regional area. Only applicants that have not already received hunter education certificates from NH can apply. Transportation to and from the camp is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. Sponsorship will be awarded based on the content of the application.

Barry Conservation camp is conducted jointly by the UNH Cooperative Extension, NH Fish and Game Department and the NH 4-H Camps. Barry Conservation Camp is located in the White Mountain National Forest at the Berlin Fish Hatchery. Nearby York Pond offers swimming and canoeing for the camp. Five cabins house up to seven campers with a counselor in each.

Hunter Education July 23-28, 2017 Ages 12-16

Join NH Fish and Game Department Hunter Education staff, volunteer instructors and camp counselors to learn and practice safe, responsible and ethical hunting. Campers will learn wildlife identification, conservation and management; take part in a live fire exercise with rifles and shotguns; explore the outdoors through a map, compass and overnight survival challenge; help prepare wild game for table; and participate in a friendly skills challenge at the conclusion of camp.

In 2009, we were saddened by the loss of our dear friend and fellow club member, Dan Gauthier. Dan was an active member of the Goffstown Fish & Game Association for decades, and had served as Secretary for over 25 years. Dan was also active as a Chief Instructor for Hunter Education. In his memory, the Association has established the Dan Gauthier Memorial Sponsorship to send one young person per year to the Barry Conservation Camp in Berlin, NH.

Shoot Results

01/22/2017

 
Hi folks:

Thanks to all of you who attended the I Froze My Butt Off 2017 shoot. Many of you attended just to work and help out, and that helps more than you know. The number of shooters is increasing and with that, the support requirements increase. Thanks to all who brought food etc. It is a big part of the attraction. Everyone seemed to have fun, definitely our priority. Thank you again for supporting the shoot.

The cold weather really raised havoc with the .22's. Guns that normally function flawlessly jammed incessantly. And, of course, our fingers were not working real well either. But, with all that said, shooters rose to the occasion and performed admirably. Once again, we had NO safety issues, the fire warmed us, and shooters shared wisdom and equipment. We need to thank Kinnicum Fish And Game for the use of their traps.  What great machines they were!   

It was cold, we introduced something new, shotgun, and required shooters to switch shooting positions between relays. And they still shot well. The course was simple but the time was challenging. SO congratulations to all who participated. If you enjoyed it, tell your friends. If you did not, tell us. We want to see even more of you next time. Please share any feedback or suggestions. 

Attached are the results. Lowest total score wins.  Please share, we do not have all shooters emails.


 
 
Brian will be at the Clubhouse to process in-person membership renewals every Thursday night in January from 6 to 8 pm. Renewals need to be made in person this year. Dues must be paid by 1/31/2017 to maintain membership.
 
 
Hi everyone:

Thanks to all who attended last years 2016 "I Froze My Butt Off" shoot.  We promise lots of fun at our 2017  event. This year will be a three-person team event, using shotgun, handgun, and rifle, shooting individual and team targets. Score is total team time to destroy all targets. Teams can be predefined, luck of the draw, or made up that morning, your call.  I am certain many people will be looking to create a team that day.

  1. Bring LOTS of AMMO!
  2. Bring a shotgun, handgun, and rifle if possible.
  3. This is meant to be FUN, not competitive
  4. Everyone is worried about their performance. Don't be. It is a TEAM event.

    This year we want to encourage Women and Juniors to participate. So, knowing most women and juniors get little chance to practice, we "adjusted" the shoot to make it fair. Non-Traditional teams DO NOT have to use handgun if they do not want to. PLEASE! Bring your junior (under 16), wife, girlfriend, anyone who qualifies. We will make up teams as needed. We already have two juniors (under 16) registered. Highlights for Non-Traditional teams include:

  1. Maximum of 25 yds (not 50 yds)
  2. Substitute a .22 rifle instead of handgun if preferred.
  3. Shotgun and rifle do not have to trade positions.

 Please see the attachment for complete "Non-Traditional" team rules. Of course, juniors and women can also compete on a traditional team if they want to, they would just have to adhere to those rules.

 Hope to see everyone Jan 15, 2017 at the Club.  

 Come enjoy our new Shooting Pad!

Welcome Shooters to the six annual summer theme shoot. This is a follow up of our winter (I Froze My Butt Off Shoot) and spring shoots. The shoot is open to club members and to non members. 

Theme for Shoot: We are continuing with the format of the spring shoot. The handgun shooter fires on a series of "pre-qualifier" targets (steel plates and clay pigeons) and bonus target(s) that allows the shooter to fire for score on a paper target. We have made a few changes from the spring shoot to keep it challenging and interesting. As is a tradition, we added a second match for rifle. The rifle match does not utlize a "pre-qualifier" but does incorporate bonus targets and tight time limits.

The full details and rules are available for download.

Location: The shoot will be held at the Goffstown Fish & Game Association facility on Melvin Valley Rd. in Weare NH. 

Date: Sunday, August 14, 2016 from 8:45 AM to end (3pm latest.) If weather is doubtful, please go to www.goffstownfishandgame.com to see if the shoot has been canceled. 

Prizes: There is a first place prize for high, overall, scoring individual in the rifle and handgun match. 

Cost: Cost is $20.00 for the match. Food is included in the match fee. Your fee allows you to shoot either match or both as often as you like, time permitting. Shooters firing their initial entry will have priority over re-entries. Shooters can shoots pistol only, rifle only, or both.

Grub: Free coffee all day. Food will be served, and the cost is included in your entry fee. Non-shooters will pay a nominal fee for the food. 

Please see attachment for full details and rules!  We hope to see you there!

Welcome Shooters to the fifth annual winter theme shoot. The purpose of the shoot is to fill in the doldrums of winter with a fun, low-cost, not-much-on-prizes, you-get-braggin’- rights-and-a-frozen-butt shooting match. Last year Mother Nature decided to drop an ice storm on us and we had to quit shooting by noon or spend the night. This years January shoot is going to have a target shooting theme. I have several club members who enjoy paper punching and have been after me to set something up. I decided to run two handgun matches and a rifle match. Knowing that most of the attendees are more informal shooters, I split the handgun portion into a strict one hand “bullseye” match and a second “sportsman” match allowing two hands (times, targets and distance are the same, I just tweaked the rules to give them a better chance at higher scores) on most of the relays. The rifle match was left at one match. As with our other matches we will run a line of shooters during each match. We will continue to run lines for the various matches throughout the day until we run out of time, shooters or the weather turns on us. Please try to be there on or at 0900. Thank You! So grab your favorite “shootin’ irons” and head out to the Goffstown Fish and Game and freeze your butt off with us! General rules, dates, times, etc. are listed below. 

Location: The shoot will be held at the Goffstown Fish & Game Association facility on Melvin Valley Rd. in Weare NH. 

Date: Sunday, January 17, 2016 from 9 AM to end (3pm latest.) If the weather is real bad, the shoot will be cancelled. If weather is doubtful, please go to goffstownfishandgame.com to see if the shoot is still on. If the shoot is cancelled we will try to reschedule (IF POSSIBLE), with the new date being posted on our web site. 

Cost: $20.00 per individual contestant. This fee allows you to shoot in any two matches of your choice. If you want all three matches cost is an additional $5.00. Lunch is provided as part of your entry fee. Re-entry fee is $5.00 Re-entry is allowed if time permits.

Grub: Free coffee all day. Food will be served at lunch time. Light snacks and breakfast will be available. Non shooters pay a minimal fee.
