OUR HISTORY

 

With great interest being displayed in the fast growing sport of international skeet shooting, local enthusiasts organized a one range skeet field in Amite, LA that consisted of lean-to trap houses set up in a local cow pasture.  The year was 1952.  By the spring of 1954, local support had grown to such a level that a skeet shooting club was incorporated under the name of Florida Parishes Skeet and Gun Association.  Later that year, a knotted cypress club house was constructed on the Banks of the Tangipahoa River.  It is certainly one of the most beautiful of its kind.

 

             After organization, the club immediately became affiliated with the National Skeet Shooting Association and began hosting registered competitive shoots.

 

             The club adopted as its emblem the wild turkey which was staging a come back throughout the south and especially in Louisiana.

             The local club was designed to educate all people, both young and old, in the art of handling a gun; in the art of wing shooting; and in the art of safety, and boasts of never having sustained an accident by the use of or handling of guns on their ranges or from their members. 

 

In 2005, the Skeet Club affiliated itself with Cowboy Action Shooting by entering an agreement with the “Bayou Bounty Hunters”, a local Cowboy Action Shooting Club.   The “Bayou Bounty Hunters” now host monthly shoots on the Skeet Club facilities.  For more information on this fast growing sport go to the following link, www.bayoubountyhunters.com .
