When I was young The Spring Branch Lions Club in Houston held an annual Turkey Shoot. It started out in Addicks, Moved to a couple different ranges throughout the years. Eventually fading away. Pearland had one and so did the Olalaska Lions Club near Huntsville.
These were offhand shooting at 100 yards at a life-size , clay, turkey head, pay $2.00 a shot, break the head, win "gobbles" add up your "gobble" at the end of the day and trade them on turkeys, hams, bacon slabs.
There were several "events" 50 yards Standing Bear, hit the dime sized hole in its chest, it fell over growling. "Swinging Hams" 25 yards twine strings hanging down with a weight on them, break the string, win gobbles.
Great fun, any old timers on here remember these???
I think we should resurrect these shoots, I know just the range to have at it too...........
