Back at the end of 2012 we had a bit of a fun shoot and most people seemed to enjoy it and as a bonus they also got a laugh at my groups. It was just for fun so the spirit was more important than the "rules" but I thought to see if anyone was game for another go at it. The bottom line was -
3 rounds only at a one inch black dot on a bit of white paper at 100 yards, or meters f that suits you better. The aim is to hit the black dot not to shoot a small group so if you aren't zeroed at 100, as is my case for example, then you'll have to aim off into the white paper.
The key to the shoot was that it was a "stalkers shoot" so there were no practice shots, or reshooting a dodgy group, or ignoring some rounds because of wind, or gravity or whatever. There was also no changing your 200 yard zero to 100 or fitting a target scope because the crosshair on your stalking scope obscures the black dot. You got out of the car, put up the target, fired 3 rounds using your normal stalking rig and that was you done. Then you posted the photo.
Again as it was a stalkers shoot bench rests and rear bags and so on were not allowed. The maximum support was a prone with a bipod, preferably in a wet ditch in driving rain :-) Of course you could use less support so sticks or leaning on a tree root were allowed. The key was to act in the spirit of a stalking fun shoot.
However, the whole thing is a bit of fun so if your land only allows for a target at 70 yards then go ahead and do that, or if you normally shoot with a .50 Barret with a PMII at 50 times magnification on top then feel free to go with it, or if you have to shoot from a highseat on your land then that is just fine. The key is to keep with the "spirit" of the thing so it must be the black dot (because deer don't really have good aiming points on their shoulders) and the only shots that count are the first 3 with no practice or discarding of groups because they aren't great. However, if you want to shoot 3 off bipod and 3 off sticks then that seems like a bit of fun, in that case you'd only shoot 6 shots, no practice, no discarding groups etc. etc.
Apache helpfully posted a target last time and if this link works then here it is again:
The Stalking Directory
If that doesn't work you can see the first run of this idea here, and Apache's target is on the 2nd page:
Stalking fun shoot - anyone game?
