November Turkey Shoot

In November a few of the Teachers and Priests went to the annual Turkey shoot at the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon. There was a competition but we did not win anything although we did have a lot of fun. There was a Shotgun competition which consisted of 2 rounds of 5 chances to hit 5 clay pigeons. I believe after the first round we were 4 for 25 but improved a little on the second round to 9 for 25. We were a lot better at the .22 rifle shooting. Everyone got their own target to shoot at about 20 yards. They put an aspirin on the center and if you hit it then you could pick a candy bar. We got at least 6 or 7 candy bars on that one. They also had an extra activity which was hatchet throwing. If this was a competition Todd would have won that one. A photo album is included here of the pictures of the boys shooting their targets.
