Note - we live a mile away and out of sight of, but not out of hearing distance from a ranch that hosts the occasional cowboy style shooting tournament. Their matches are select dates - March 28, April 18, and September 24-26 - but they have occasional practice days on Saturdays/Sundays typically on the third weekend of the month. You may hear gunshots from their place during the day in those days. West Virginia is indeed wild and wonderful. Learn more about CASS and view their calendar here: www.wvcass.org.
