It's a Family Affair - Etowah Valley Gamebirds & Clays
November 14, 2019
Hosted by Marty Fischer
The vast majority of hunting and shooting facilities are family owned businesses. Granted some are corporately owned, but most tend to be "mom and pop" operations. This week Marty visits with the Becker brothers, owners and operators of Etowah Valley Game Preserve and Etowah Valley Sporting Clays located in Georgia north of Atlanta. Alex and Phillip Becker have been entertaining upland bird hunters and clay target shooters for almost two decades at the two facilities that are on separate properties, but serve the same markets. Marty will get into all things upland bird hunting and clay shooting with the Beckers. They have found that the two markets are often much the same people, but with the resurgence of ladies and youth shooting, primarily in the clay target world, there are extended opportunities to introduce new hunters to great gamebird hunting. This will be a great show that focuses on both wingshootng and clay shooting - in a family sort of way.
