MOSELLE, MS (WDAM) -

Moselle has put together an archery program called the Bullsie Bulldogs.

Coordinator Brandi Ezell said approximately 30 students from Moselle Elementary and other areas in Jones County have joined. 

Ezell, who has two children attending Moselle Elementary, said she decided to start the after school program because she believes archery is a great sport and gives children another avenue to put their energy into.

“This can help keep them busy and out of trouble,” said Ezell. “It teaches them team building skills;this is a sport that anyone can do. These kids are great and are growing up to be productive citizens in the world and at the end of the day that's what we all want.”

During practice students have to share bow and arrows since they are short on equipment. Since the program is new, the team is trying to raise money to purchase equipment for everyone.

On Saturday, December 6, the Bullsie Bulldogs will have a turkey shoot at Fairfield Baptist Church in Moselle. The shoot starts at 11 a.m., check in is at 10 a.m. There will be two shooting lanes, youth and adult. The youth lane will be a shoot from 15 yards and the adult lane will be a shoot from 40 yards.

Cost for the youth lane is $2 per arrow or 3 arrows for $5. Cost for the adult lane is $4 per arrow or 3 arrows for $10.

The fundraising event will also have lunch plates, drinks and raffle tickets for sale. All proceeds go toward buying equipment for the Bullsie Bulldog archery team. The event is called Turkey Shoot because winners will take home a frozen turkey.

For more information contact Ezell at 601-543-2240.
