CHARLES F. HILL, JR
...
Charles F. Hill, Jr. Six-time New Jersey ATA champion Charles F. Hill Jr. was born, May 23, 1910, on a farm in Delair, New Jersey. As was usually the case all the boys helped with the farm chores and every year after the slaughter of the pigs, they invited their family and friends to a wonderful barbeque feast, afterwards doing a little clay target shooting. It was from these affairs and the occasional trapshooting of his father that got him interested in shooting.
Charlie first started shooting at local clubs eventually joining the ATA at the Camden PR & R Gun Club, in Camden County, registering his first targets in 1939. For many years he competed in most of the state shoots on the East Coast as well as the Florida Chain shoots, winning many trophies over his 50+ year shooting span. He captured the 25-bird handicap championship at the Roxborough Club Shoot in 1944 shooting from the 24-yard line. ften he tied for high gun honors with such greats as Walter Beaver and Steve Crothers.
Charlie competed in his first state shoot in 1940, shooting in Class C and handicapped at the 19-yard mark. He steadily progressed and by 1944 the "Big Guns" already knew of Charlie's skill. At the 1945 New Jersey State Shoot, Charlie was shooting at the top of his game capturing the State Handicap Championship after a shoot-off with W. Holmes of
...
In 1948, Charlie won the New Jersey State Singles Championship breaking 198 over the traps of the Pennybridge Farm Gun club in Port Monmouth. State Secretary Walter Johnson reported that "Hill shot one of the greatest races ever recorded in the history of this event", as he twice broke 99 jumpy, wind-swept targets.
...
Charlie was an avid live-bird shooter who competed in many Flyer Championships.
He was the third place winner in 1944, the year Mort Haines Jr. won the championship. On November 13, 1949 he won the New Jersey Flyer Championship at Chalfont, Pa. after defeating his friend Paul Holloway in the miss and out shoot-off. He won the N.J. Southern Zone handicap championship held at Camden P.R.R. Gun Club after a shoot-off with his old friend Harry Bullock. Hill was one of the top-flight shots of New Jersey and won the Southern Zone crown several times. He also shot as a member of the southern team when the Zone Team Race between the North and South was a feature at state shoots.
Hill was crowned state singles champ again in 1950, defeating the field during a raining morning and very windy afternoon with scores of 99 and 97.
Charlie 's love for trapshooting was evident not only by all the many friends he made over the years, but he was one of the first shooters known to own a movie camera and often filmed tournaments, always zooming in on "Old Glory. The circa 1959 State Shoot held in Asbury Park, NJ was donated to the New Jersey Trapshooting Hall of Fame, in the memory of Mr. Hill, by wife Catherine.
Charles Hill was known to help several of his clubs. He owned a trucking business and used his trucks to pick up targets at the railroad siding and delivered them to the Pine Belt SC. He was very active in the affairs of the Pine Belt SC, often using his heavy equipment and work crews to improve the shooting grounds.
...
Mr. Hill was always generous with his equipment, he and Catherine often volunteering their services. Catherine (Sissy to her friends) still remembers helping clear saplings and feeling the falling force of one dropped on her head by Charlie. Sissy also ran the practice traps for many years. Charlie was a Trustee of the NJSTA in 1950 and was a Director for several years in the 1970's. He also served on the State Shoot Handicap Committee in 1971. In 1974 Director Hill was elected Alternate Delegate. On June 7, 1975 he shot his one hundred thousandth (100,000th) singles target.
In 1976 he retired to South Carolina. However, he and Sissy still made the annual trek back to New Jersey in their Airstream trailer before the State Shoot and stayed at the club to help get the grounds ready. This also gave them the chance to visit with old friends. In his younger days, Charlie loved hunting quail and small game. In his later years, after retiring to Lake Marion, he enjoyed taking friends on his boat for fishing excursions. He was a life member of Pine Valley and Pine Belt Gun Clubs and maintained membership and shot regularly at many others. Charlie became a life member in the ATA in 1939. He was a member of the Atlantic Indians. He wouldn't miss the opportunity to compete at the Grand American and attended this tournament for 25 years.
Charlie left a lasting impression to all who knew him and was truly admired by all his shooting friends. Sissy remembers Winchester Rep Charles Hood driving up to Pine Belt from Virginia to present Charlie with a plaque for his 100,000th registered singles.
...
Proof of admiration for Mr. Hill was exemplified when the Winchester Rep drove back to Virginia and returned to Indian Mills to make his presentation that same day. Mr. Hill fired at his last targets in 1993 before a stroke ended his shooting career. The ATA life member had registered a total of 108, 880 singles, 55,675 handicap and 42,262 doubles targets. Mr. Charles F. Hill, Jr., one of New Jersey's great shots from the past, left for the Great Hunting Grounds, January 10, 2002, at the age of 92.
