2022 Women’s Shooting Sports Information

The Defiance Area Fish and Game Club has been proud to host a Women’s Shooting Sports Event for several years. We have offered women (no need to be a member) a chance to come to the club property and enjoy learning more about shooting .22 rifles and .22 pistols.

The event starts with some basic safety instruction and then moves to actual firing of rifles and pistols. All needed firearms, hearing protection and eye protection are provided for the participants. The only thing that the women need to bring is an interest in learning more about shooting. This program is offered at no cost to the participants.

August 7 and 21 & September 11 and 25 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM.
You can sign up for as many as you want to attend.

Please contact Larry Brown at 419-395-1123 for additional information.
