The Pheasant’s Forever Triple Challenge is held each May. This youth tournament attracts teams from throughout the state.
The hands-on portion of the Youth Hunter Safety program is held on the club grounds in spring. Sponsored by the Manitowoc Recreation Department, these classes teach hunters safety and ethics to the next generation of sportspersons and hunters.
Except for the youth tournament, all functions above are open to the public and everyone is welcome.
Open to club members only, the annual club championship shoot is held during the summer league season on a Sunday in August. Trophies are awarded in trap and skeet, and are fifty target events. The shoot is divided into classes A thru D, Juniors and Ladies. The class that an individual shoots in is based on their 16 yard average allowing competition to be matched to an individual’s particular shooting ability. Handicap yardage in trap is also determined by the 16 yard average.
The club also holds registered trap and skeet tournaments during the spring and summer. These tournaments are sanctioned by the Amateur Trapshooting Association and the National Skeet Shooting Association. The Manitowoc Gun Club is proud to say that over the years a number of state championships have been won by members of our club.
