    We just had our Annual Turkey Shoot/$10,000.00 Raffle. The attendance has been going down, as is all Trap Shooting. We have the normal 10 Target (2 from each of the 5 Stations) Trap, and a thing called Wild Bird where we pull a variety of trap and/or Skeet Targets (same fields). We also have a .22 shoot at a string with a Stick of Sausage Hanging from it, if you knock it down you win a Turkey/Meat Pack. We have a Bingo game outside and Spin-the-wheel Raffles inside. What other Shooting events (Games) do your clubs use (SAFE) for Fun Money making.

    Our usual "Extra" is to replace 1/9 of the targets (one stack per case) with green birds, randomly. This way all shooters of decent skill have a chance to win, as the AA guy might not get as many, or any to shoot at. Helps to include the new folks.

    Generally a prize for each squad - at a small participation fee, of course!

    For our Turkey and Big Pig shoots, we have a "grand prize", where you can poach another's green bird - they break it, you break a piece, you get it. For obvious reasons, this is for more experienced shooters.

    If you win that event you are the "Big Pig" or "Big Turkey" for the year. That's more valuable than the prize, isn't it?

    Quail walks, where you start at the back fence, low gun, and start walking forward. The puller can pull a bird at any time,so long as you get them all in the air before the shooter falls off the trap house. Needless to say, this is a one shooter at a time event. Five birds, best score wins.

    Bushwhackers. Five shooters, first shooter picks the spot, from on top of the house right back to the fence. First shooter calls and shoots the bird, second shooter can shoot at a piece(if there are any big enough to shoot at). If he breaks it, first shooter goes to the end of the line, and doesn't shoot until all shooters have completed a turn as first. Second shooter is the successful shooter, so third shooter goes first, with fourth shooter trying for a piece. When the original fifth shooter goes, the original second shooter is next,then if he misses the piece, he goes first, and down the line to include the original first shooter who is now fifth. We do a two life system, where you have to have a piece broken twice to be knocked out. The last man standing wins whatever the the prize is.

    Five spots. First shooter picks the spot, usually WAY WAY back and at a hard angle, then each shoots 5 birds and best score wins. Ties shoot off. This can also be a six spot, if you want to do it as a buddy shoot, where the buddies alternate going first and backing up.

    Borrow a Rabbit machine and some targets, and watch all the trap shooters miss.
    (especially if you put a little "hop" ramp about 10 feet out)

    Now, if you got knocked out early and didn't win any dough during the night, you got a consolation prize...
