HUNTING SEASON  RANGE RULES

............
DIRECTORY

ACCIDENTS ARE PREVENTABLE, STUPIDITY IS NOT.
We recognize that common sense cannot be "legislated". There will always be those individuals who simply do not adhere to rules. For this reason, everyone needs to be on their "A-game" when using the property. It's just like when driving a car, it's always the other guy you need to worry about.  Therefore, if you see someone violating the rules, ''firmly'' but ''nicely'',  explain to them that they are not only jeopardizing their safety, but the safety of others as well. Whenever possible, get their names and report all incidents and violations ASAP. Your co-operation in this matter will go a long way towards making this a safer club for everyone.
***********************************************

The Outdoor Gun Range is open from dawn to dusk seven (7) days a week except as noted below OR if the RANGE CLOSED SIGN is posted on the gate. Any and ALL incidents or problems should be reported to the range Committee head as soon as possible.

HUNTERS
are NOT permitted to hunt on the Outdoor Range at
any time.
That means if ''NO ONE'' is using the range, or if the
Range is closed, it is still
''NOT PERMITTED'' to
hunt on the
Outdoor Range. Hunters are
NOT permitted to hunt on the
Outdoor
Range "AT ANY TIME". PERIOD!!

A ''NO HUNTING ZONE'' has beeen established around
the
range and has been marked and posted in the near future. 
It will be roughly
30 Yds on each side of the range from
the tree line and extending into
the woods. Everyone is
urged to respect this zone for everyone's safety.

Hunters using dogs are asked to make every attempt to keep
your dogs
away from and off of the range.  Hunters who are
hunting the perimeter of the
range and surrounding areas are
urged to heed the
"NO HUNTING ZONE"  signs. Always stay
at least 30 yds away from the range and keep in mind that you
are near the range when shooting. Know what is beyond your
target. There could be shooters on the range. Members should
always use the
THREE C's when hunting or shooting. They are:
''CAUTION, COURTESY AND COMMON SENSE''

Shooters are to fire only down range at designated free
standing backboards.  No cross
range firing.  Shooters MUST
use the Range Flag when going down range to replace or check on targets.
NO FULL AUTOMATIC WEAPONS.
Our insurance policy does not allow the use of "Full Automatic Weapons''
in either the Indoor or Outdoor Range.
NO DRIVING ON THE RANGE.
Using your vehicle to go down range is PROHIBITED!!
Walk down range to retrieve your targets.

RANGE CLOSED SIGN:
A range closed sign will be placed
on the gate during
any other periods when the Outdoor Range
needs  to be closed.  This may occur
during a Bow Shoot, CCW
Class or for maintenance of the range.  BCSC will make
every
attempt to post range closing days on the BC Website for your
convenience,
however, if the sign on the gate  says the range is
closed, well then,
THE RANGE IS CLOSED!!
SAFETY IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY
Hunters and shooters are now responsible for each others safety.
Any
problems or questions should be brought to the attention of
Conrad Piscitelli,
(Range Committee head) as soon as possible.    
Contact Conrad @ (330) 799-2357 or contact
someone thru the
BCSC Website.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Remember the ''Four Rules of Safe Gun Handling''.

Rule #1: Treat every Gun as if it is loaded~
Of course every gun is not loaded, but this rule insists that
every gun be treated
as if it were loaded. Many accidents
occur by people who think their gun is not loaded and find
out that it is the hard way. For this reason it is always better
to be safe than sorry. Treat every gun as if it has a bullet in
the chamber.

Rule #2: Only Point if You are Willing to Kill
Never point a gun at something unless you are okay with
killing it. Pretending to point a gun at someone isn't fun or
funny at all and can end up with fatal results. Keep the gun
pointed at the ground at all times unless you are ready to shoot.

PLEASE remember: Scopes should NEVER be used as binoculars.

Rule #3: Be Certain of Your Target and what is beyond
Be sure of your target before you point and shoot. Accidents
happen, but accidents with guns can end up with people dead
or severely wounded. If you
''think'' you
see a deer, don't
shoot until you are
''sure'' of it. The worst thing that could
happen
was that a deer was actually your dog or hunting
partner, right?


Rule #4: Keep Your Finger Away from the Trigger
The last and one of the most important rules of gun safety is
to never have your finger on a gun trigger unless you are
prepared to pull it. It is also a good idea to keep the safety on
at all times. Keeping the safety on and keeping your finger off
of the trigger makes for much fewer gun related accidents.
