The Philmont Rod & Gun Club held its annual Jon Wilder Sportsmen’s Challenge on February 13, 2016, despite the sub-zero temperatures. The day-long event includes squirrel hunting, 22 shooting from 50 yards and from 100 yards (open sights), casting for accuracy, trap shooting, and archery. The competition was intense, but in the end Doug Cropper from Philmont came out on top, with Will Montague of Albany second, and David Siter of Mellenville third.

The club wishes to thank Joe Kenneally donated the food for the day and cooked, Julia Egan Veronezi, Sue Oles, Pat Price, and Bob Fisher for their help in running the competition.
