Enon Hunt Club to host sheet shoot

Hunter-SafetyENON – Hunters wanting to hone their skills just before dove season are being urged to attend the Enon Skeet Shoot hosted by the Enon Hunting Club this coming weekend.

The event will see participants shoot five shots from five stations from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the range east of Houston. The club is urging family to bring their children to this event that will see trophies and prizes in three age groups.

“We hope people will come out and have a little fun,” said Bill Klauser, event spokesman. “We’ve got three age groups for kids and adults can shoot for bragging rights.”

Klauser said shooters should bring their own gun and shells and all youth under the age of 18 should be accompanied by an adult. There is a $5 entry fee.

“We will have people out there who will be glad to provide their gun for youngsters to shoot, if they bring an adult,” said Klauser. “This is more about the kids and having a little fun than anything else.

Age groups are:

• 12-and-under.

• 13-15.

• 16-18.

• Adults.

Prizes and trophies will only be given to youth shooting in the event.

Klauser said there will be good shots and no-so-good shots at the event and it is open to the public.

“We will also have food available,” said Klauser. “We hope people will come out, enjoy the shoot and have a good time with us.”

Klauser said the club has held this event before and they are hoping for between 45 and 50 kids.

Shooters should take Highway 8 East to Enon Road and follow the signs.

For more information and details on the shoot contact Klauser at 456-4313.
