The Portage Lake Sportsmen's Club was organized more than sixty years ago to encourage fellowship among local hunters and anglers. Club facilities are located on its 80-acre property near the small town of Chassell in the western Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
The purposes of the club are to foster good sportsmanship, to support sound conservation practices consistent with proper wildlife management, to provide a safe and convenient site for use of firearms, to offer hunter safety instruction to the general public, to defend the right of private ownership of firearms, and to promote responsible legislation to these ends.
During the summer season, the club has regular weekly shooting sessions for IDPA-sanctioned pistol, five-stand shotgun, and rifle marksmanship. Annually the club sponsors hunter-safety courses, and a 3-Gun competition.
The club property is gated, and the gate lock combination is furnished to all members.
