"One of my favorite things to do in the Fall is to go to the Turkey Shoots. For those of you that may not know what I'm talking about, a Turkey Shoot is where a bunch of guys bring their shot guns to an event usually sponsored by a Community Center or Volunteer Fire Department. The sponsor provides the shells and paper targets and the shooters pay $3 to $5 to compete for a prize (usually a ham, turkey, slab of bacon, sausage, etc.)."
