Lake Barkley State Resort Park to host turkey shoot

Lake Barkley State Resort Park is hosting a Turkey Shoot – a target shooting competition – on Nov. 17.

The competition consists of two events. The first is trap shooting, with six flights for target clays from 8 to 11 a.m. Each flight will be made up of five shooters with five shots per person.  Shooters will change positions after each shot. Ties will be broken by shooting from longer distances until a shooter misses. The winner of each round will receive a turkey and will be entered in a drawing for a free night’s stay or Thanksgiving dinner for two at the park. The cost is $15 per shoot.

The second competition is a still target shoot at 1 p.m. There will be five rounds and each winner will receive a turkey and will be entered in a drawing for a free night’s stay or Thanksgiving dinner for two at the park. The cost is $5 per shot.

Both competitions are for 12-gauge shotguns only. Rounds will be provided.

The park is located at 3500 State Park Road in Cadiz.
