The Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association thanks all the people who turned out for its first-ever Shotgun Turkey Shoot on Dec. 19.

“The shoot was a great success and went fairly smoothly considering it was our first attempt,” an event spokesperson said. “We learned lessons about getting people through faster, which we will incorporate at our next shoot. Even the weather broke and the sky was dry for most of the day.

“It was great to see so many novice ladies and youth try out the sport and also win turkeys. The assistance given by the knowledgeable and experienced trap and skeet shooters was greatly appreciated. A special thanks to Safeway for assistance with the turkeys,” the spokesperson added.
