The day started bright and early at 8:30 at the Quail Creek Plantation in Okeechobee. Teams tooled around in camo-covered golf carts to go from station to station to shoot. The event used both of Quail Creek Plantation’s courses, closing them to the general public until about 2:00 p.m.
Each shooter had 100 clay targets to shoot. Participants ranged from individuals to teams of six shooters. Approximately 400 shooters participated in the Citrus Fun Shoot.
Griffin Fertilizer sponsored a team of four young men who aptly named their group ‘The Young Guns.” Collectively, they shot an impressive 386 clay targets out of 400 during the regular arm of the Citrus Fun Shoot. It earned them a spot in the Shoot Off. While they didn’t win the Shoot Off, they did represent Griffin Fertilizer really well with their excellent shooting.
The event also included a raffle drawing for outdoor gear and various prizes. Afterwards, there was a lunch sponsored by Farm Credit of Florida. It featured Stone Crabs, Shrimp, Prime Rib, and all the fixings. Proceeds raised by the event will go towards the Highland’s County Citrus Grower’s Association.
