European Style Shoots

European Shoots at Coon Creek Hunt ClubThis event will challenge the best shooters and sharpen your shooting skills with fast moving, high-flying excitement! European shoots are great for larger groups and are ideal for corporate entertaining with a minimum of 10 shooters and a maximum of 24.

You will love the fast action and non-stop shooting. Hunters are stationed at 10 different shooting locations. You know when the action has started by the sound of gunfire. This type of shooting will challenge even the best shooter. Each station is spread far enough from each other for safety purposes and also to provide a different hunting perspective. During the shoot, each team will rotate to other shooting stations and each team will utilize all shooting stations. At the end of the hunt all birds are divided up equally between the teams.

Rules and Etiquette:

Although the shooting stations are specifically designed to physically inhibit shooters from pointing barrels at other stations, safety precautions need to be taken at all times. All regular hunting safety rules apply.
