  • IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM BRUCE.  "In several of our BSM's across the state I have observed pictures of firearm use in a BSM sponsored activity....From this point forward, no BSM activity is to involve guns or bows, loaded or unloaded. Therefore, no hunting trips, no target practice in someone's field, no target practice at a gun range, no taking International students hunting, your staff hunting, one student hunting, etc. etc."  To read the entire letter, click here.
