Sunshine and moderate weather brought out a crowd of 38 shooters, young and old, novices, intermediate and expert competitors to the Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association for the annual fall Turkey Shoot.
They came from Quesnel, 100 Mile House and Lakes, and Williams Lake, proving that trap shooting isn’t just for the top shooters.
Prizes for the fun shoots, which involved nearly 30 shooters at a time, were awarded to Ernie Schmid, Adam Feeley and Barry Jenkins for the first Annie Oakley, and Adam Veley, Reid Williston and Peter Malic for the second Annie.
Tops in the popular Bushwhacker event were John MacDonald, Adam Veley and Ernie Schmid.
MacDonald also won the second Bushwhacker. A third novelty event, buddy shoots, brought prizes to Lori Williston and Brett Bradshaw, first, and Adam Veley and Barry Jenkins, second.
The last buddy shoot was won by Jim O’Brien and Ted Swift.
The Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association’s next event will be the popular New Year’s Day Turkey Shoot, starting at 10 a.m. on New Year’s Day at the Bond Lake Road range, located at 920 Bond Lake Rd.
