Based on the numerous superlative comments from everybody, throughout the entire Match, this truly was a collaborative team effort from so many. The BBH thank you and are in debt to YOU for making this such a wonderful State Match!!!
Briefly, and in summary for those unable to attend, we had 3 days of perfect shooting weather! The food was terrific and plentiful. The banquet was a resounding success! It had great raffle items with Cole Trigger winning the Ruger RPR in 6.5 Creedmoor, Bad Thunder winning the 1911 Wild Bunch pistol, Krazy Kajun winning the portable smokeless fire pit, Imaginary Cowboy winning the Dillon 750 press and Slick McClade winning the Pres.

We hope to see Riverview Rattler, Card Shark Charlie and their wonderful spouses again soon!
In closing, Tobin Kid, Dusty Sometimes & Runnin Rose truly want to thank everybody for their patience and assistance as we three learned how to run a state match for the first time. According to you, if was one of the best in years! Early on, Tobin & Dusty decided to spare no expense in this Match and go for broke, and it paid off! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with comments, tips or suggestions! We want hear from you!

Pards please read and follow the following Covid guidelines.
For each match, all shooters must adhere to the following CoVid safeguards, that most if not all, SASS clubs are utilizing:
- If you’re sick or feel a temperature, stay home, do not come to the match. If you’re in a susceptible risk group, you should strongly consider not coming to the range.
- Avoid groupings of 10 or more people in any confined areas. The clubhouse will only be used for bathroom visits.
- Pre-match registration and scores will take place outside the clubhouse. This is an “EXACT CHANGE ($5 or $10) match”, to avoid the handling of banknotes.
- Shooter, RO and 3 spotters will be the only persons on the stage, with no more than two (2) at the loading table at a time.
- Follow the recommended 6 ft social distancing guidelines with no physical contact. Face covering (nose and mouth) should be worn anytime a person is within 6 feet of another person. A bandana or scarf would suffice.
- Hand sanitizer should be used after any use of common objects such as ink pens, sign-in sheets, timers, scoring tablets etc.
- Spent brass should only be picked up and transferred with a device and not by hand. All shooters need to handle their own guns.
- ONLY the Posse Marshal shall handle the Posse Book with the Stage scenario sheets and Posses will not use spotter flags.
- Pulls for knock-down targets may be handled with the use of a bandana or other such barrier device.
- Please bring a face mask or other cover for use when in close proximity of others (on stage during the reading of the scenario).

Monthly matches are back!
Happy holidays from the BBH. Please note a few important club updates below:
1- Due to the current CoVid-19 state guidelines, we’ve decided to postpone our annual membership banquet until the spring or summer. Our annual Treasurer’s Report will be forwarded via email next month. Monthly matches will continue all while observing CoVid safety guidelines.
2- The Category chits award (a pair of new Ruger Wrangler .22 cal pistols) will be awarded at the January 4th Saturday match. As a reminder, you do not need to be present to win and only need to be a member of the BBH or the FPSC. Next month, Foard County News and Tom Kedrick will tally up the number of category chits for each member and Rose will draw the winning Chit after the match. At this match, we’ll also announce the 2020 Spirit of Coyote Creek recipient.
3- We’re excited to confirm that in November 2021, the BBH will host the Louisiana State Championship after having a very successful “Hangin at CC” last month.
4- Due to the current shortages of reloading supplies, and only on a temporary basis, we may begin allowing .22 cal shooters at our monthly matches in the regular categories, to allow shooters to conserve ammo for big matches and to continue shooting with us. More to come once the Board irons out the details.
5- As always, we’re so appreciative to the FPSC, our sister club for their support, all of our shooters and members, and for the new shooters that have joined the club in 2020. Today we received a “Thank You card” from Hellbender and the Up the Creek Gang for our disaster donations that we sent them last month.
The Bayou Bounty Hunters would like to remind all club members that the FPSC is open to Long Range shooters Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12n – 4p and Saturdays (when cowboy matches are not bring held) from 8a – 12n, before skeet matches start in the afternoons. When using the long range facilities please remember range safety basics and be aware of any persons who may inadvertently enter the area. .
