Will Mitchell Wins GON’s Youth Shoot-Out

Adventure Outdoors and Woods-N-Water award grand prizes!

Brad Gill | August 1, 2014

Will Mitchell, 15, of Martin, has some serious things to think about. He’s got to figure out how he is going to spend $3,000 at Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna. Wow!

Will won the shopping spree by winning GON’s Youth Shoot-Out on Friday, July 25 at GON’s Outdoor Blast at the Gwinnett Center. He out shot 15 other youth shooters to become this year’s champion.

After winning the Shoot-Out, which came down to a 60-foot shot at an egg, Will did hint that he was in the market for a new bow.

For winning the Shoot-Out, Will also won an additional grand prize—a dream deer and hog hunting trip with Woods-N-Water in Wrightsville. In addition to some quality father-and-son stand time, Will and his dad will be staying at a very remote and quiet lodge, will be well fed, and they get to fish during the middle of the day.

Interestingly enough, the last three out of four Youth Shoot-Out winners have come from Franklin County, and all three of those boys know one another.

Make sure your kids are in the running for this year’s GON’s Youth Big-Buck Contest. Turn to page 80 for more information.
