The Ickesburg Sportsmen's Association, Inc. was founded in 1979. Our first meetings were held at the Ickesburg Firehouse. In 1981, we started the cooperative fish nursery on Snyder Lane. We purchased that land in 1991. We built the trap and rifle ranges in 1993. Currently, we have rifle ranges of 25, 50, 100, 150, and 200 yards. We also have archery targets and a platform with 3-D targets for the archers. We are also the parent club of the Perry County Regulators, who schedule, plan, and run Cowboy Action Shooting matches. We have 8 stages with several props for the Cowboy shooters. We are an NRA affiliated club.
We have 2 pavilions that the club members can schedule to use. Also, the club building is available for rental by club members. To schedule, call one of the directors or officers who will present the date to the directors for approval.
We are a participating club in the Perry County Sportsmen for Youth, which plans and holds an annual Youth Field Day. The field day hosts approximately 200 youngsters and teaches shooting and other outdoor skills. The field day alternates between Duncannon Sportsmens’ Association and Ickesburg Sportsmens’ Association. See the calendar of events for date and location of the field day.
The Ickesburg Sportsmen's Association is a cooperative nursery with the PA Fish and Boat Commission. Each year, we raise 5000 to 6000 trout in our nursery for stocking in local streams. The fish are provided by the Fish Commission, but we must maintain the nursery and purchase the feed.
