Special Events & Projects

Youth Day 2017

The 2017 West Salem Rod and Gun Club Youth Day was held on June 17th. The event was a great success, with nearly 130 youth in attendance. Kids had opportunities to experience a wide range of outdoor experiences ranging from shooting pellet guns with members of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to casting, archery, and tree stand safety just to name a few of the stations.

Thanks again to all our sponsors and volunteers. We hope to see you all next year!
