“Meat” shoots are very popular special events. Various activities surrounding the use of shotguns are held with the winners of the events winning a frozen meat selection. Activities may include:
Annie Oakley: This fun event involves a large number of shooters (around 15) using the Trap Range. Shooters are arrayed in a line. The first shooter calling for a bird must shoot at it. If Shooter #1 misses their target the next shooter MUST take a shot. If they hit it then Shooter #1 is eliminated, if Shooter #2 misses then Shooter #3 may elect to shoot. If Shooter #3 manages to break the bird then Shooters #1 and #2 are eliminated. Shooter #2 will also be eliminated if they take a shot AFTER Shooter #1 has already hit the target (“dead bird”) or if Shooter #2 fails to take a shot after Shooter #1 misses. Once a series has been completed the onus moves down the line to the next group of 3 shooters. The last person standing wins a prize.
Pepper-the-Paper: A single shot is taken at a paper target upon which is drawn a large pie shape (12 sectioned circle). Participants purchase sections of the pie for $2 or $3 dollars. The section hit with the most pellets wins a prize. This game is often used as a fundraiser during other events as well.
