The Property

We are fortunate to have a beautiful 5-acre property at Elks Lane, off Fairchild Road, Crestview, FL 32539.

On the property we have a large pavilion providing much needed shade and shelter. The pavilion is used to serve refreshments, shooter sign-up and scoring.

We have hot and cold food, cold drinks and we have ice available for our shooters to keep their meat prizes cool on their way home.

We also have a portable restroom available during the Turkey Shoots.

The large flat field is also used for many youth sporting events like football, soccer and baseball during days and evenings when the Turkey Shoot is not taking place.

Youth Shoots

We hold two youth shoots each year, which is a great way to introduce your children to the fun sport of shooting in a safe environment.

For the youth shoots, we use 20GA shotguns. Shooters can bring their own gun or borrow one on the day.
Each shooter is settled at the shooting position before the shell is handed out. Only one youth is at the shooting position at a time. Parents may help their children or simply take photos or videos. The youth is fully monitored at all times for safety.

The Youth shoots have proven to be extremely popular with all the children have a great time.

The Characters

We have many shooters who come to each shoot and this has led to a great friendly atmosphere. People share guns, advice and of course the occasional joke and tall story.

Strange expressions and facial hair are totally optional.
