What's Happening at Bull Creek?

  • The Winter Trap League Starts the Sunday after New Year's. The first shoot is at West View Sportsman's Club, followed by Frazier the week after and then Bull Creek. This is a great informal league that runs 12 weeks. You do not need to be a member of a club to shoot for that club. (See link to schedule at left)

  • The first club meeting of 2010 will be Thursday January 7th at 7:00PM. At this meeting we'll have final nominations for officers, then elections for 2010. Anyone may nominate a member for office, but to vote you must be a clubhouse keyholding member.

  • Our next Gun Bash will be Saturday March 6th at Laube Hall in Freeport. Tickets are available now ($25.00 each) by attending a monthly club meeting or from a Bull Creek Member. (See link to the left)

Happy New Year!

The Love of Fishing!

Dave and his buddies were hanging out and planning an upcoming fishing trip. Unfortunately, he had to tell them that he couldn't go this time because his wife wouldn't let him.

After a lot of teasing and name calling, Dave headed home frustrated. The following week when Dave's buddies arrived at the lake to set up camp, they were shocked to see Dave. He was already sitting at the campground with a cold beer, swag rolled out, fishing rod in hand, and a camp fire glowing.

"How did you talk your missus into letting you go Dave?" "I didn't have to," Dave replied. Yesterday, when I left work , I went home and slumped down in my chair with a beer to drown my sorrows because I couldn't go fishing. Then the ol' lady snuck up behind me and covered my eyes and said, 'Surprise'."

"When I peeled her hands back, she was standing there in a beautiful see through negligee and she said, ' Carry me into the bedroom, tie me to the bed and you can do whatever you want'..... So, Here I am!"
