Fifth Annual BAMA Turkey Shoot
November 23 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pm
At the Fifth Annual BAMA Turkey Shoot, you can enjoy great food, tests of skill, good old-fashioned competition and possibly take home your Thanksgiving dinner!
On Nov. 23, come visit Toney Creek Plantation for target shooting at its best. The plantation is located out Hwy. 247, and sits on acreage owned by the same family for 200 years!
Registration begins at 8:30 AM at the scenic upland hunting preserve. The last shoot will be around 1 pm. Hosted by the Belton Area Museum Association, the event is free to attend, thanks to the presenting sponsor Sportsman’s Warehouse.
“Young and old are invited to participate in this old-fashioned event,” said Abigail Burden, BAMA Executive Director.
Participants can purchase turkey targets for $5 to $10 and engage in over 10 contests to win great prizes. Entrants will use shotguns to see who can hit a pellet closest to the center of the target. Ammo and guns will be provided or you may bring your own gun.
There is no limit to the number of targets participants can purchase.
Several great prizes are being offered per round, and winners will take home meat prizes such as turkeys, sausage, and hams and other hunting related prizes like CWP class passes, decoys and calls, shooting range items, Yeti buckets, a sportsman’s grill, a name-brand cooler, promotional items, and gift certificates.
In the children’s division, those from 8 – 12 years of age can purchase a turkey target too. The targets will be set up at a shorter distance.
“Even if you don’t want to participate in the turkey shoot, there are still lots of fun things to do at the event, including games and crafts for kids and food, of course,” stated Burden.
The event will start off with a farmhouse breakfast. A full course meal consisting of biscuits, sausage, eggs, grits, and coffee/juice is available for purchase of $8. Toney Creek Plantation will begin serving at 8:30 AM.
Mid-day the Mercantile of Belton will be serving up its famous hotdog plates. Beginning at 11:30 am, plates will be sold for $8.00 per person, consisting of two hot dogs, slaw, chips, southern pecan pie, bottled water, soft drink or tea.
Other sponsors of the event include Vulcan Materials Company, McCall’s Produce, Ingles, Bi-Lo, Dr. Jarod Haggard, Anderson County, AgPro, the National Wild Turkey Federation, ACE Hardware of Belton and Williamston, and B and B Gun and Pawn.
All proceeds benefit the Belton Area Museum Association in support of their operational expenses and educational programming.
