Third annual Ducks Unlimited Eastern Continental Shoot scheduled for May 10-14, 2023

The Ducks Unlimited National Shoot Committee will host its third annual Eastern Continental Shoot from May 10 to 14 at The Cross Creek Clays Shooting Complex in Palmyra, Tenn. It’s considered one of the premier shooting facilities in the Eastern United States.  

The state-of-the-art lodge is in the rolling hills of Palmyra, just 20 minutes from downtown Clarksville. The lodge offers a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse, a 5,000-square-foot event center, and three, 16 station sporting courses for shooters of abilities – advanced, intermediate, and novice.  

“We’re so excited to have such a great venue like Cross Creek Clays set up and rolling out the red carpet for shooters from across the land,” said Charley Lowery, Middle and East Tennessee senior regional director. "From the target presentation to the club house, you won’t be disappointed in all that CCC has to offer for shooters and their guest.”  

The Eastern Continental Shoot is patterned after DU’s popular Ducks in the Desert Las Vegas Continental Shoot, held every year since 1986. All events are governed by National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) rules, but membership in the NSCA is not required for shooters to participate in this tournament.  

The event features 50 registered target rounds of super sporting, 5 stand, sub-gauges, (20ga, 28ga, and .410), a 100 registered target preliminary, and the 200 registered target main event. Prize packages for games provided by Weatherby Firearms, Reed’s Family Outfitters, and Federal Ammunition.
