Kody Klundt, Kyle Perry and Dave Waddoups each came up with 384 out of 400 targets and engaged in a three-way shootoff for the championship of the sixth annual Ducks Unlimited Fun Shoot held June 4-5.
Klundt emerged as the buckle winner of a very successful event sponsored by the Hailey-Bellevue Ducks Unlimited Chapter. It was held on a sunny weekend at Wood River Gun Club south of Bellevue.
Other event winners: Brad Thomas (345) and Ben Chuckovich (235).
Draw winners were Kyle Perry, Dave Waddoups, Jim Kuntz, Zach Sewell, Hoss Schmidt, Mike Chatterton, Juan Goitiandia, Pete Miller, Randy Miller, Dennis Kavanagh, Doug Walters, Ted Higginbotham, Fred Anderson, Mark Mastrofini, Chris Larsen, David Arnaiz and Robert Kolman.
There were 33 shooters on Saturday and 30 on Sunday for the 400-target, two-day competition. Ducks Unlimited provided Saturday dinner.
Event organizer Matt Thornton said the event made almost $9,000 that goes to Ducks Unlimited for restoring wetlands. He said, "Many thanks to all the shooters and donators for a great weekend."
