    Closed matches, spot shoots, still board, turkey shoots?

    They are know by many names. Usually held in the fall. I know of several in the counties lining the ohio river towards evansville such as the Knights of Columbus in St. Meinrad, American Legion in Ferdinand, but are there other places that hold these events still? Nothing like going to church on a particular fall sunday with a shotgun, Siberia shooting match. Hoping to find some near the central part of the state I have relocated.

    Boring is my middle name. Never gambled on winning half a beef for $10?

    Fall Creek Valley Conservation Club held them up until mid March. I believe they are done for the season now. Checked one out but my heart rate went so high that I had to find another less strenuous activity...Where is that purple highlighter again?

    Forgive my ignorance but, what the heck are these things? And how do I get in on one?

    Still board, turkey shoot, spot shoot - You pay $2.50-4, you get a peice of cardboard that you put your + on and they take it and put on a post with about 14 other cards on 14 other posts. One shot (12 gauge) per board. Then you and 14 other people shoot at their own board. The closest one to the + wins. One winner per round. You can win a turkey, ham, or $20 at the ones I have been to. Bascially the hillbilly form of gambling.

    Closed match - 7 to 12 shots per board. $1 per shot. The thing with this type is that you go against everyone that night, there is no winner per round. Pretty much have to be dead on the + to win these. First choice is half a beef and then it gets smaller there after.

    No membership required at all of the ones I go to. Just show up and give them your money and they will be happy to let you shoot.
