Although school is out for the summer, eight area youth spent a week back in school, so to speak. The group participated in the June 13-17 Junior Shooting Sports Camp offered by the Ottawa Sportsmen’s Club (OSC) near Pelkie. Youth aged 14-17 were given the chance to learn proper shooting techniques, safety and range etiquette with plenty of hands-on opportunities.
OSC member and spokesman Mark Wuori said participants spent at least eight hours each day throughout the week in lectures as well as on the range. Monday began with students learning safety basics using a .22 rim fire rifle. They also learned the four firing positions—standing, kneeling, sitting and prone. That continued on into Tuesday. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
