Turkey Shoot Saturday


Approximately 40 turkeys will be handed out at the annual Tonto Rim Sports Club Turkey Shoot, set for 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at Jim Jones Range south of Payson.

The cost is $2 per shot and contestants have a chance to win up to four turkeys with contests offered in four events: archery, handgun, rifle and shotgun with slugs. This is off hand shooting and any sights may be used.

The best shot in each group of five or six contestants from 100 yards for rifle, 50 yards for shotgun with slugs, 25 yards for archery and 15 yards for handguns will win a turkey. Safeway sponsors the turkeys. If winners don’t want to take a frozen turkey, they will be given a gift certificate to cover the cost of buying a turkey.
