Benefit sporting clays shoot on tap in Hermon

If you’re looking to get in some sporting clays practice and want to help combat poaching in Maine, the Hermon Skeet Club has just the event for you.

The club will hold its 6th annual northern Maine Operation Game Thief fundraiser on Saturday: The Fall Harvest Fun Shoot.

For the $100 entry fee, entrants will make their way through a 10-station, 100-target sporting clays course. The event starts at noon, and the field will be capped at 50 shooters.

Prizes, raffles and a silent auction are part of the day, and lunch will be provided.

To register, go to or call Peter Partley at 745-6498.
