TBG State Shoot- 3/19&20

We’re getting close once again to our annual state shoot. We’ll be back at the Rock Ranch this year on some familiar land with some new twists. I’ll plan to be there early on the 18th to get the course set up, and any help is always appreciated. Registration/ shooting will begin 8:00 am on the 19th. We’ll have 40 target set up, 10/8/5 scoring, with a 20 target championship round on Sun. morning. Fri night we’ll have a coon shoot after it gets dark. Those are always fun; we shoot at glow rings in the dark for a cash payback. On Saturday, we’ll have the 40 targets of course, and we’ll also have a seminar at 2:00 by Robert Carter about Ga. public land hunting. We’ll also have an Eagle Eye competition during the day Sat. That will be a long distance target with a tiny bullseye. Big Jim will be back with all his goods. Camping is free, as is our potluck supper Sat. night. I can’t wait!2016 Flyer

The 2014 TBG Dan Quillian Memorial State Shoot will be held on March 15-16, 2014 at The Rock Ranch. We will be using a different portion of the property this year and it looks to be perfect for us. Good looking woods, lots of open areas for camping (free camping), ponds, and a huge pole barn that will make this an all weather venue. It will be awesome!

TBG Northern Zone Hunt

The TBG Northern Zone Hunt will be held at Cooper’s Creek WMA on September 27-29, 2013. My plan is to camp at the Forest Service Campground at Cooper’s Creek. It is roomy and provides easy access to the WMA. This is a pay camping area and is handled on a first come-first served basis. The Mulky Campground is also adjacent to the WMA if the Cooper’s Creek sites fill up. Both run $8 to $10 per night. If you are averse to paying to camp, there are spots on the WMA where you can do it for nothing.

This hunt will be held the same weekend as the Outdoor Adventure Day at Unicoi State Park. My personal plan is to hunt on Friday, come to Unicoi on Saturday, and hunt on Sunday. I would invite other hunt participants to ride over to Helen with me on that Saturday to assist in the TBG Youth Range on that Saturday.
Hope to see a good number of TBG members and guests at this hunt.turday, 9/28.
