Building on the success of its Turkey Shoot annual sporting clays event held each August in Forsyth, Ga., the NWTF announces the NWTF-Bass Pro Shops Great Midwest Turkey Shoot.
The NWTF-Bass Pro Shops Great Midwest Turkey Shoot will take place Sept. 6-8 at the Ozark Shooting Sports Complex in Walnut Shade, Mo.
Registration is open for this Natiponal Sporting Clays Association sanctioned event, which includes a 200-target sporting clays shoot with NSCA and Hunter divisions. Participants will compete for more than 20 guns. The NWTF-Bass Pro Shops Great Midwest Turkey Shoot will also feature 12-gauge preliminary, 5-stand competition, sub-gauge contests, side-by-side and pump shotgun events.
Youth Shooters and Teams Encouraged to Attend
Through support of the Scholastic Shooting Trust, a not-for-profit organization established by Larry and Brenda Potterfield, the NWTF is offering $5,000 endowments to youth shooting teams that participate in the NWTF-Bass Pro Shops Great Midwest Turkey Shoot. Additional endowments will be awarded for the top placing youth shooting teams, with first place recieving an additional $5,000, second place receiving $3,500 and third place receiving $2,500.
At the Turkey Shoot recently held in Forsyth, Ga., more than $100,000 in endowments were awarded to 18 youth shooting teams through the same partnership.
Youth shooters can sign up for the 200-target main event for just $100.
Not only will these programs increase the number of youth participating at the NWTF-Bass Pro Shops Great Midwest Turkey Shoot, but they also will increase the number of youth shooting teams with Scholastic Shooting Trust endowments to cover ongoing shooting costs.
