Shellbrook Fish & Game League was started in 1952 by Lloyd & Clara Larson and Knute & Gladys Larson. Lloyd was the first president and Knute was the second club president a number of years later. Other presidents and active members in those early years were Henry and Janet Rydde, Ken & Doris Fraser, Jack and Gladys Rudolph, Smoky and Jean Wason. Some other active member surnames that come up in the memories of those and later years are Stene, Blakeney, Thomas, Clark, Pedersen, Delisle, Lundy, Stene, Stewart, Mason, McComas, Miller, Sterling, Kennedy, Rudolph, Moe, Gatzke, Stefan, Carswell, Gosselin, Cobb, Bates, Bilyk, Strube, Horricks, Tieszen, Diehl, Harris, Dupius, Shewchuk, Ledding, Helm, Mason, Tait, Sommerfeld and Muller.
The club name changed to Shellbrook Wildllife Federation in the 90’s. The club grew from 5 original members to 139 members at the turn of the century. In 2016 the membership has grown to 623 members.
In the early days the club meetings were held monthly in someone’s kitchen. As the club grew a few meetings were held in the Ordale hall, Cameo Hall, Hilldrop School, and then in the Shellbrook Legion Hall. In the early 1980’s the club members built the present clubhouse and indoor range at 99 2nd St SW in conjunction with the Golf clubhouse. The outdoor range was started in the Canwood forest in the 1980’s and upgraded in recent years with concrete pad and roofed shooting benches and log style picnic shack where today many families now enjoy nature, a weiner roast and target shooting outing.
In recent years the club has grown rapidly with the inclusion of youth target club, many lady shooters, and many people from a bigger distance because of our modern, comfortable indoor range and our serene setting for our outdoor shoot with its modern benches and berms.
With our tremendous member expansion, the Club name has now officially changed to Lake Country Wildlife Federation and Lake Country Target Shooting Club.
