EDGEFIELD, S.C. — The Meadows Clay Sports in Forsyth, Georgia, will soon be vibrant again with the sights and sounds of healthy shotgun sports competitions as the National Wild Turkey Federation’s annual Turkey Shoot is set to return August 11-14, 2022.
“Turkey Shoot is one of the longest-running big sporting clays shoots in the country,” said Rhett Simmons of the NWTF. “Shooters from all over the country look forward to attending each year as they enjoy the atmosphere, the challenging targets, the great prizes and the knowledge that proceeds generated by the Turkey Shoot are going to assist the NWTF’s wildlife conservation efforts across North America.”
The highlight of the three-day shoot is the 200-target main event, taking place on Saturday and Sunday. Separate super sporting and prelim competitions, with 100 targets each, will be taking place on Friday. Additional daily shooting events include 50-target FITASC, 5-stand, subgauge (20- and 28-gauge and .410), pump and side-by-side competitions.
Newcomers and families alike also can join in the fun with non-competitive games stationed around the complex.
Saturday night, event participants are invited to take part in a social hour and dinner with raffles, auctions and the chance to win other awesome NWTF gear. Tickets are included with main-event registration, but additional banquet tickets may be purchased prior to the event.
Sponsors of the NWTF’s annual Turkey Shoot include Golden Gobbler Sponsors: Bass Pro Shops, Federal Ammunition, Hoist and TriStar; Royal Slam Sponsor: Benelli and Boss Gobbler Station Sponsor: Tetra Hearing.

About the National Wild Turkey Federation
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters’ rights. Today, the NWTF is focused on the future of hunting and conservation through its Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative. Since 2012, this 10-year initiative has already eclipsed goals of conserving or enhancing more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruiting or retaining more than 1.5 million hunters and opening access to more than 500,000 acres for hunting and other recreation opportunities. This critical work will continue to impact wildlife habitat and our great outdoors in the final year of the initiative.
