TBG Northern Zone Shoot
« on: March 27, 2013, 02:27:00 PM »
It's that time of year again...hard to believe this will be the 8thth year of the Northern Zone Shoot at the Coots Farm!
This date worked out so well last year we are hoping to avoid conflicts again this year with the same weekend.

May 18 shoot Date

Here are a lot of the details: (these are Joe Coots' words from year before last; ain't no way to improve on perfection)

30 (or more) Target Course, $10 shoot fee, family of 3 or more $25, kids 12 and under shoot free, shoot as many times as you want but first round counts for score.
The course will be an informal competition based loosely on the clubs shoot rules/classes, with “braggin rights” going to the winner of each class.
Ask anyone who's been to one of these, you will have a good time and just about guarantee your face and sides will hurt from all the smiles and laughter.
We will be cooking a great lunch to share together supplemented by any covered dish donation you care to bring. Considering what folks have brought to share, the food alone is worth the trip.
As we have in previous years, lunch is paid for by your donations, but if you can’t afford to pay, you are welcome to eat as our guests. All proceeds go to TBG.
We start at safe shooting light and announce the winners around 3pm, but many arrive early to sit and drink coffee or stay late to watch the sun set with tales of past hunts and dreams of future ones.

Ask anyone who's been to the past 6 how much fun they've had and I'm sure you'll find the time to make it up here.
Each shoot has been better than the last so we are looking forward to this one being even better.

If you have a spare light bow to loan for the day and a couple of arrows you don't mind losing, we always have someone who "just came to watch."
As everyone reading this knows, if we can get a bow in their hand we'll have another convert to our cause. We should have a couple anyway but we will probably need more.

We will have a trading blanket area: bring any trad archery items that you want to trade/sell or donate to someone who might need them.
Make sure you clearly mark whatever you bring with name, telephone #, $ price, or trade options.
While I have never seen a trading blanket go wrong, we can assume no responsibility for your gear.

The address of Bent Bow Farms is 949 Liberty Church Road, Ranger, GA 30734.
General directions are:

-75N to Exit 293

-Turn Right off Exit 293 which will put you on 411N

-Take 411N for approximately 15 miles to Fairmount, continue on 411N through Fairmount for approximately 7 miles to Ranger.

-As you come into Ranger you'll see a brick post office on your left, turn left at the road just past that, Liberty Church Road.

-Continue on Liberty Church Road for approximately 1 mile. We are the log cabin with the green tin roof on your right, there will be signs posted.

Mapquest takes you further North on Liberty Church than where our house sits but it will take you the same way I have explained.

Feel free to post questions here, private message, email or call Joe (JC), Gene (Dutchman) or Jeff (Jake Allen).

Bring a chair, bug spray, thermocell and or tick spray. It is springtime in North Georgia.

We usually have a swap-n-sell table/blanket at this shoot. Bring items you no longer have use for and see if you can make a sale or a trade.

We are going to have a running pig target to throw arrows towards.

Several used targets will be for sale via a silent suction, including;
10 point Rhinehart Whitetail
Rhinehart Snarling Wolf
Rhinehart Big Goat
Walking Bear
Strutting Turkey

Silent auction: The Targets will be on display and have a card to use to record your bid. I will pull the cards at 2pm shoot day; the high bid will win the opportunity to buy the target.
For a good cause, and these targets have a lot of life left.

Ya'll come! Dinner is at noon....
