One of several youth firearms training classes was conducted Sept. 22, at the Itasca Gun Club located on County Road 61 north of Grand Rapids. Twelve Minnesota youth ages 11 and older, came from as far away as Fargo, N.D., Duluth, Cloquet, Side Lake Minn. and the surrounding area, to complete the final requirements for the Minnesota Youth Firearms Safety program. When asked, “Why come to Grand Rapids for the training?” the students agreed they wanted to be in an early posted class, get their certification and start hunting early in the season. These students had already successfully passed the alternate on-line classroom training.

On July 1, 2012 the Itasca Gun Club was awarded a $1,500 grant from the National Shooting Sports Foundation for the use of purchasing non-firing safety training rifles to be used in the youth firearms training classes.
