George Gayle from Pleasant Home won second place in the “E” class of the main event held at Elk Creek Hunt Club last week.
The main event consisted of 200 clay-bird targets.
Gayle had a strong performance Friday, leading his class at the end of the day.
Saturday, he was just one bird out of first place; and Sunday, he was six birds from the lead to take the second-place trophy.
Gayle can place this trophy alongside the elk antlers he brought back from Colorado a couple of years ago. Although this event was held with shotguns, he is a better shooter with a rifle.
Gayle tells friends he enjoys fishing along with shooting sports, but admits that turkey hunting is his favorite. He likes to try to outwit those “wily old birds.”
