    During the fall months there are several ham shoots where you can also get turkey. These shoots are located in southern indiana in counties such as dubois, spencer, and perry coutnies. One popular one is at the Birdseye Convservation club in Birdseye Indiana. Then there are the closed matches held on fridays nights in the fall. Hope this helps.

    5 Points Conservation Club usually holds a couple in the fall. Not sure of the dates, but the club and range is on 5 Points Road, junst North of its intersection with Thompson Rd, in Franklin Twp.

    A club will hold a shoot as a fund raiser. You use a 12 shotgun. You get one shot at your board. They provide you with the shell that you will use. A board is something that you put a + on. You pay your $2.50 - 3 for one shot. The yardage is about 30-35 yards. You shoot against 9-14 other people and the person that gets the closest to the + wins for that round. One winner per round. When you win you get a turkey, or in all the ones in the southwestern part of the state you get a ham or the $20. Your choice. It is the hillbilly form of gambling. Churchs even hold these as their fund raisers. St. Isadore in Bristol Indiana in Perry county and St. Martins Church in Siberia in Perry County (I think it is perry county?). Siberia's is the second Sunday (or maybe the first) in November I think.
