Each shooter gets 100 targets, a continental breakfast, raffle tickets one for a Browning Citori Special Hunter 12-gauge Shotgun, an orange-colored Grizzly brand 20-quart cooler, and a Hog Hunt event to be held in Jones County. Plus, all registered shooters will also get a 15th Annual Sporting Clays Classic event t-shirt and a Barbecue lunch from Sharon Allen’s Barbeque Restaurant.
