Turkey shoots start in November and run through December. There are several different contests a shooter can enter, the winners get a frozen turkey (One turkey is given out for every five shooters in a contest). The number of contests during an event varies depending upon the number of participants and/or weather conditions.
Beginning shooters are welcome as we do have contests for just novice shooters.
The entry fee is $7.00 per contest.
The events start at 9:00am.

Follow the leader - First shooter shoots from anywhere on the field he chooses, need not be on a prescribed trap post. Each shooter shoots one bird from the same spot. If you miss, you get a hicky, after 3 hickies you are out. If first shooter misses the next man in line that has not missed starts the second round from any point he wants. This goes on until 1 or 2 people are left, depending upon the number of people in the contest.
Colorado Bush Whacker - 2 shooters stand directly behind the trap house, the shooter on the left calls for a bird and shoots, if they miss or a big piece is falling the second shooter gets to shoot, if they hit the target or the big piece, the first shooter gets a hicky, after 3 hickies you are out.
Annie Oakley - All contestants (up to 15 people) are lined up in the order in which they signed up on the 25-yard line. The first shooter calls for a target. If the shooter breaks the target, the next shooter in the line becomes the leader. If the first shooter misses the target, then the second person in line MUST shoot. If the second shooter breaks the target, then the first shooter receives a hicky. If the second shooter missed the target, the third shooter in line has to shoot. If the third shooter breaks the target, then the first two shooters receive a hicky. If all three shooters miss the target, they all get a hicky. You are out after 3 hickies. This continues until one shooter is left, the winner.
Quail Walk - A shooter will walk toward the trap house from the 25 yard line, at anytime during the walk a target will be thrown, if you miss the target, you receive a hickey. After 3 hickeys you are out of the contest.
Bushwhacker - Very similar to the Colorado Bush Whacker, except you stand on the 25 yard line and 3 shooters. The shooter on the left calls for a bird and shoots, if they miss or a big piece is falling the 2nd shooter gets to shoot, if they miss or a big piece is falling the 3rd shooter gets to shoot. If the 3rd shooter hits the target, the 2 previous shooters get a hickey. If the 2nd shooter hits the target, the 1st shooter gets a hickey. After 3 hickeys you are out of the contest.
