Back to Muzzle Loader Side Lock (Percussion or Flint) Match Results

As soon as the 22 match ended we set up to shoot the now annual November muzzle loader turkey shoot. This was a lot of fun. At one point we had to stop the shooting as a group of deer wandered right behind our targets. If you look close at the winner’s picture, just above Ralph's left elbow is several deer. This is a recap by Mick Sterling; The Second Annual Thanksgiving Turkey shoot is a wrap. It was lots of fun. 9 shooters. 6 turkeys and a dozen cans o spam and Hormel Chili went home for the Thanksgiving table. 6 shots, best 5 shots for score at 50 yards offhand. 12 shots, best 10 shots for score at 100 yards sitting and supported. High score for the offhand relay was Ken with 45 points out of a possible 50. High score sitting supported was Mick with 72 out of a possible 100. The Turkey winners finishing in the top 3 were Mick (116), Ralph (104) and Wayne (102). Thanks to Doc Ralph for donating 3 turkeys for the random draw, thanks to Gary for tabulating the scores and thanks to the shooters who made it a safe and enjoyable muzzle loading shooting competition. Cheers, Mick
