Pukwana combines cowboy mounted shooting and mini golf

Farm Forum

The first annual Cowboy Mounted Shoot and Putt was held February 16, 2014, at the Ashley Indoor Arena at Pukwana, South Dakota. The event started with three stages of cowboy mounted shooting. The shooting event was paid out in a 3D format.

Winning the Cowboy Mounted Shoot 1D division was Brett Borkowski of Wessington Springs with second going to Craig Shryock of Wessington Springs. The 2D division had Greg Wendell leading the pack with Steve Deneke of Wessington Springs coming in second. Kelli Shryock of Wessington Springs won the 3D division with Nick (Hoss) Soulek of Kimball pulling in second place.

Later, with horses tied to their trailers, contestants tried their hand at five holes of miniature golf. The golfing event was jackpotted with the top three places receiving money and prizes. Rock Boyd of Volin won first place with Greg Wendell of Pierre second and Pam Nelson of Kimball winning third. An All around award was presented to Greg Wendell as the high point place in both the mounted shooting and golfing events.

These events were well received by the participants and broke the long winter doldrums.
