2011 Simms Shoot Out

Sweetwater’s own Turd Ferguson took home the Simms Shoot-Out Title on Friday night at the Ellen Theater in Bozeman. Turd along with filmmaker, Beattie Outdoor Productions  wooed the audience and fellow competitors with a revealing account of Turd’s life and fishing skills. The Shoot-Out competition was fiercely contested between four team of guides, anglers and filmmakers, all charged with producing a six minute film in a matter of just over two days. The winners of the competition won a nice stash of cash along with, of course plenty of Simms products and Galvan reels. Turd’s crew took home the gold by one vote. The votes were all submitted by text message.  Sweetwater guide Aaron Hansen only learned how to text during the last minute of voting and may have very well proved to be the difference maker. This now makes it two years in a row that the Sweetwater team has a major presence at the Simms Ice-Out event. Last year our crew  led by Scott Schumacher won the now discontinued Fish Bowl.

Special thanks to Turd,  RA Beattie, Austin Trayser, Clark Smyth and Simms for the laughs.
