This year marks the 62nd anniversary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 912 Turkey Shoot. 

Started in 1957, the “turkey shoot” is one of Baytown’s longest-running family events. The VFW hosts the turkey shoot 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday in October, which is also the main fundraiser for the post.
