I've seen signs for turkey shoots. What are they exactly and what are the rules/requirements normally?

Basic concept - Contest / quasi gambling involved in shooting a 12ga shotgun @ a stationary target . Usually involving who has individual pellet strike closest to " X " on center of target .

No overall sanctioning body , rules & procedures can vary at individual venues .

But typically distance of 50- 75 feet . Ammo provided by venue . Shoot pays certain amount per round or group of rounds ( individual matches). prizes can be cash , or sometimes meat . ( Harking back to frontier days when informal shooting matches would give live turkeys .)

There is a degree of chance involved , but the tighter your patterns , the better your probabilities . Venues may or may not have rules , or seperate classes involving the guns ie , stock or not , minimum choke diameter , bbl length, etc . Full blown custom guns can be " Interesting " . Folklore ( with a degree of truth) favors pre mid 1960's guns with fixed Full choke amongst stock guns

If you decide to try your luck, pattern your gun on paper beforehand. I had 3 guns to choose from and the testing was extremely eye-opening.

Are turkey shoots held throughout the year or in the fall and winter months? I havenít heard of it before this but it sounds like it could be fun.
