Default Independence Trad Shoot and Cookout

Here we go again!!!

July 8, 2017

Mark your calendars to attend the 2nd annual Bear Lake Independence Traditional Archery shoot and cookout in Dawsonville Georgia. You DO NOT have to be an archer to attend but if you want to try it out we will have loaner bows. There will be lots of other activities like camping, fishing, kayaking, water slide and GREAT food.

There will be kids bows and games for the little ones.

This will be a pot luck cookout so bring your favorite dish.

We will have a 20-25 target 3-D course and we will have the Potty Shot like last year, for prizes.

For fisherman we have a 6 acre pond with bass, bream and catfish.

For those that want to camp, you can come on Friday and stay till Sunday.

Remember the date of July 8. Bring your kayaks, fishing gear, bows and lets have some fun!!!!

The address is:

524 Shamrock Lane, Dawsonville GA 30534

When you get of my road, go to the dead end.

Folks please share this with your friends. We will start getting a head count pretty soon. It's going to be fun.

Just a traffic note. Hwy 136 just West of GA 400 will be shut down for bridge construction at the time of the shoot. If you are coming North on 400 or East on 53, just come through Dawsonville. If you are coming South on 400, get over to Hwy 9 and then go West on 136.

Me and my wife plan to attend the Jerry Russel shoot, July 8th. Do we need to contact anyone direct to attend? This will be our first time at this shoot.

I might be interested in stopping by and doing some shooting and photography if that's ok...?

Probably more photography of flint knapping and others shooting than me shooting.

Got all the targets set and this is a good chance to hone your setups for bow season. It is set with hunting in mind with elevation changes and quartering shots. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Probably won't make it after all. My mom fell in the nursing home and broke her hip. Her surgery will likely be Saturday. Barrett, my grandson, and I were really looking forward to the shoot.
