The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers committee hosted their annual shotgun shoot Aug. 27 at Silverleaf Shotgun Sports in Guthrie, raising more than $19,000 to benefit the OKFB Foundation for Agriculture.
The group hosted nearly 140 shooters on 34 four-person teams. The event tested shooters’ skills at stations mimicking real-life hunting scenarios.
The first-place team – Hayden Hillary, Koy Davidson, Charlie Zimmerman and Cooper Davidson – and second-place team – Cody Richerds, Hunter Campbell, Clay Robertson and Nolin Marcus of Murray State College – received a cash prize. The high individual award was presented to Clay Robertson. Door prizes were also presented to competitors.
A YETI cooler was raffled to provide additional funds for the foundation. The OKFB Foundation for Agriculture seeks to connect consumers with accurate agriculture information as well supporting agriculture and rural communities in Oklahoma.
The title sponsors of the event included John Vance, OKFB Insurance and the OKFB Women’s Leadership Committee. Comanche County Farm Bureau, Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma, Okmulgee County Farm Bureau, Pottawatomie County Farm Bureau, Rogers County Farm Bureau and Tulsa County Farm Bureau were platinum sponsors.
The gold sponsors included Canadian County Farm Bureau, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, First Bank and Trust Company, Kay County Farm Bureau, Payne County Farm Bureau, Seminole County Farm Bureau, Shamrock Bank, Southwest Center Pivot, Warren CAT and Woodward County Farm Bureau.
