Results of the Southern Illinois Classic

Activities and Exhibits

It was a beautiful day in Southern Illinois! Under clear skies, it was close to 60º when the shoot began and gradually warmed to 74º by the time the event ended. We did have some windy conditions most of the day but other than that, it was perfect fall weather.

A good crowd was on hand that included folks from several different states as well many local shooters and spectators. It was good see local FFA shooters participate in the still target shoot and the accompanying trap shooting event.

The operators of the Rend Lake Shooting Complex had the area well prepared with gun racks, benches and tables.

Fourteen members of the NWTF Jackson County Wild Turkeys chapter ran targets, judged the line, handed out shells, scored targets and did everything necessary to make the shoot progress smoothly.

Sponsors and donors included Advanced Technology International (ATI), EvoShield Shooting Systems, TRUGLO Turkey Chokes, Hevi-Shot, Jackson County Wild Turkeys, Spectra Shot, The Rend Lake Shooting Complex and allaboutshooting.com
