Batesville Poultry 2-Day ATA Shoot

Lots Going on

I wanted to give everyone a rundown on what we have coming up at the range over the next few weeks:

* For those who don't know, Lyon College is fielding its first ever collegiate shooting team this fall and we are their "home field"!  Their practices start today, Wednesday, September 10th, at 4pm, with at least 2 tournaments scheduled before the end of the year. There are several local shooters who have made this team and our own Neal Ballard is the coach!  So, make sure you come to watch them practice, and definitely come to their tournaments and support Lyon College and the Fighting Scots Shooting Team.  I Love College Sports!!!!

*Saturday, October 18th - Lyon College Invitational is now over.  4 teams came to shoot it was perfect weather and a hotly contested event.  The Team results on a top 5 shooters rule are:

  1. ASU 477/500
  2. Lyon 461/500
  3. UACCH 420/500
Winning the top 3 shooters awards were Haden Zibel (100) and Ryan Mccallister (99) from ASU, and our own Noah with 97/100 (who also, by the way shot his first and second perfect rounds).  Pressure?  What pressure?  Photos are on Facebook. 

*Saturday and Sunday, October 25th and 26th - 2-Day Full ATA Tournament - We will shoot singles, handicaps and doubles on Saturday and then carry over scores to Sunday and shoot all 3 events again.  There will be lots of great prizes for this event.

*Friday, October 31st, from 6pm-9pm - Halloween After Dark Shoot. - Probably the most anticipated event we've had in a while!  Come enjoy a safe Halloween night at the range.  We will be shooting glowing, reflective targets in the dark!!!  We'll shoot as many rounds as we can between 6 and 9pm.  The cost is $5 per round for kids and adults.  Come try something cool or just enjoy the light show!  We'll be serving free "Punkin' Juice" and cookies.

*Keep in mind that we will be starting our Duck Blind Field on Wednesday, November 5th.  It will run for at least 2 weeks.  this is going to be a blast, so come out and get in shape for Duck season!!

As always, there's lots going on at the range!  The weather is getting nice, so come on out and break some targets.

When originally opened, The Paul H "Rocky" Willmuth Shooting Sports Complex featured a 1200 square foot clubhouse, three skeet and four trap fields as well as archery fields.  We also offered two pavilions with grilling facilities.

In 2013-2014, we added a new 1200 square foot education center, a fifth trap field, and an additional pavilion. Visit our photo page to share the pride that we feel.  

We thank our sponsors:
