Archery shoot in Vienna offers chance to practice your skills

Whether you are an avid archer, or just looking for a reason to hit the road for a quick day trip, the 3D Archery Fun Shoot scheduled for this Saturday, Sept. 12, in Vienna, Missouri, could be the answer.

The shoot will be held at the Turkey Hill Ranch Bible Camp, a little more than an hour south of Columbia, and will last from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. There will be hourly prize drawings throughout the day. Grand prizes include a compound bow, climbing tree stand, and hunting knife. There are also “Dollar Shoots,” where participants pay $1 to try a trick shot (a shot from an elevated platform, moving shot, tin turkey, etc.). A successful attempt earns the shooter an entry in other drawings for more prizes.

The cost of the shoot is $20 and includes a free t-shirt while supplies last, and lunch is an additional $5. Children under 12 are free, not including lunch. For more information, please visit or find them on Facebook at Turkey Hill Ranch Bible Camp. For more information, you can contact Sonny Williams, Camp Director, at 573-744-5843 or

“The 3D Archery Shoot is an awesome opportunity to hone our shooting skills as you walk through the woods, enjoying some of God’s creation, while also getting a chance to win some awesome prize giveaways,” said Jimmy Allan, full-time staff member at Turkey Hill.

Turkey Hill is affiliated with the Jefferson City Bible Chapel. At the end of the day Jon Brower will offer an inspirational message.

The fun shoot offers three courses with 10 3D targets each, set at two distances—one for beginners and one for experienced shooters. With opening day of bow season, Sept. 15, fast approaching, every chance to get some practice shots in on life-like targets can be beneficial.

About the Author Lacy Fitzpatrick

Hello CAFNR! My name is Lacy Fitzpatrick, and I am a freshman from Eldon, Missouri (that town you stop in to get gas on your way to Lake of the Ozarks). It may not be the biggest or the most interesting town, but it is where I call home. I am currently an agriculture major, but I am taking classes in science and agricultural journalism, agricultural education, hospitality management and business management because I have no idea what I want to do with my life. Where will I end up? Only God knows that. So for now, I am simply going to try my hand at this whole writing thing. I am looking forward to writing for CAFNR Corner Post, as it gives me practical experience in the methods and styles of the journalism industry. I cannot wait to see what this semester has in store for me.
