Yvonne Jordan of White Bird marked the 29th year since she started shooting trap, having 20-25 years experience with the annual Camas Prairie Trapshoot competition. Having moved to Salmon River country from Oklahoma in 1985, she said she got into trapshooting after hearing the shots from a gun club located about 10 miles south of Riggins. "We heard them shooting, and we went down to see them," she said. "We started shooting in 1989." Among the highlights have been four times she made the all-star team, as well as a few shoot-offs for that honor. "In 2000, I went to Lewiston for the all-star shootoff and I broke all 25. I was shaking like a leaf, I was so excited," she said Sunday, Jan. 14. Including the handicap, she scored a 16 on opening day at the Grangeville Gun Club. "Not bad for an 82-year-old woman," she said.
