Hickory Ground Hog Shoot–April 14th

2007 marks the 27th year for the Hickory Shoot, the nation’s most popular groundhog shooting competition. There were 242 entries last year and the number could top 300 this year. The match will be held in Vale, North Carolina. Every year valuable prizes are awarded for the top shooters. In the past, 6BRs, 6BR Improveds and the mid-size 6mms have been the calibers to beat. To see what it takes to win, read this article about Harold Seagroves’ Spencer-built 6BR, which has won the Hickory Shoot multiple times.
