CALLAWADDA - Bill Jorgensen was the pick of the Callawadda-Stawell Clay Target Club members in the fourth annual Dog Trap Creek Classic.
There was a good turn for this year's shoot, with 67 shooters attending from all over the state.
In warm, gusty conditions that were keeping competitors on their toes, Jorgensen picked up overall high gun 'A' honours on the day.
Callawadda-Stawell members thought Jorgensen's $500 cash would be safe, however one shooter had other ideas.
Wayne Hawker from Kaniva (nicknamed 'Fang' or sometimes called 'Angry') shot extremely well to take out overall high gun honours, shooting 200/200.
Other high gun winners were Ashley McKnight in AA grade with 230/232, Ron Hounsell - B grade 186/200 and Leslie Comensoli - C grade 164/200.
The veterans high gun went to Wally Wombwell with 195/200, Vivienne Moore was ladies high gun winner 193/200 and Tom Young was best of the juniors with his return of 196/200.
The first event of the day was the 'classic' 25 pistol/25 double barrel shoot with guns as trophies.
Hawker was the overall winner with 100/100.
Ashley McKnight was AA grade winner with 138/140 ahead of Roger Duthie 137/140.
Bill Jorgensen topped A grade with 99/100 from Thomas Pilgrim 137/140.
B grade honours went to Toni Hogg with 96/100, four shots ahead of Zac Biggin while Leslie Comensoli fired 75/100 to win C grade from Cassandra Comensoli 70/100.
Dairy farmer, Ray Peatling from Cohuna took out the second event, the 25 targets pistol shoot.
This event was to test the shooters nerve and it certainly did with Peatling taking overall honours with 160/160 following a shoot off with Casey Fletcher, also from Cohuna.
Fletcher finished on 159/160 to top AA grade with second place going to Wayne Hawker with 147/150.
Tom Young won A grade with 138/140 from Bill Jorgensen on 137/140.
