COMBO: Prairie Dog Shoot & Steel Field Shoot (NO Rifles)

Date will likely be June 16-17, and possibly through noon on Wednesday of the 18th for dogs.
Private ranch-Specialty Pistols only (NO RIFLES).
Shooting reactive steel will be from 3 landings (you can drive to each landing).
This will NOT be a roving/walking/hiking field course.
Steel shooting will be from the prone position. If there are enough who want to bring a portable bench (I am not supplying benches) we will have a bench group. If someone uses a front rest in the prone position will be competing with those using portable benches.
No port-a-potty, no tents, and we are not shooting from air conditioned buildings.
You will need to bring everything you need for yourself.
100 rounds will be more than enough for the steel shooting.
Round count in terms of dog shooting-that is up to you.
There will be some cost involved.
There will be some cash prizes for the steel shoot (Maybe prizes).
More details to follow.

Re: COMBO: Prairie Dog Shoot & Steel Field Shoot (NO Rifles)

Date is set: June 16-18th for dogs. Shooting ends at noon on Wednesday.
No steel shooting on Wednesday.
Need to be an NRA Member and sign a waiver.
Cost is $100 for the 2.5 day shoot (pd's and steel shoot).
This is a package deal.
You can participate in what you want, but the cost will be the same.

Re: COMBO: Prairie Dog Shoot & Steel Field Shoot (NO Rifles)

For the Steel Shoot:

No distance restrictions. (Be prepared to shoot out to around 1K)
No target size restrictions. (Sizes vary )
No cartridge restrictions.
No weight limits.
No barrel restrictions.
No sighter period

There will be time limits on the the amount of time you have to engage targets.
You can switch out SP's when you want.

Shooting will be done from the prone position.
IF you use a portable table you (Friends can help) are required to move it from stage to stage.
IF you use a portable table, the best shooter's score using a table will be placed after the worst prone shooter in terms of prizes.
There will NOT be a separate Bench Class-This is a field shoot, not a BR shoot.

I will have a portable target set-up at 100 yards for zeroing SP's.
You need to know your drops. Please have this done ahead of time.
Bring your own shooting mat-We have sharp, sticky things on the ground that will cause you pain.
You will be carrying your own gear from stage to stage (5 different shooting points).
From stage 1 to stage 5 (furthest distance) will be around 250 yards from each other.

DON'T make a load so hot that it barely functions at the range.
WHEN you add sustained firing and heat, don't be surprised if your SP goes down.
DON'T have a load where the bullet engages the lands so hard that it has the potential to hold the bullet in the rifling when the barrel is dirty and hot.
YOU will NOT get to shoot a stage over because you did not engage your brain in making reloads.
IF a SP goes down/breaks, then you can grab another one or use a friend's (if they are so nice and have enough ammo).

Safety will rules will be given beforehand.
Tolerance is not going to be extended in this area.

No toilet facilities-Bring your own paper and shovel

In other words you need to be safe and responsible for yourself.

Re: COMBO: Prairie Dog Shoot & Steel Field Shoot (NO Rifles)

Information concerning the Steel Shoot:

No distance restrictions. (Be prepared to shoot out to around 1K)
No target size restrictions. (Size and shape of targets vary)
No cartridge restrictions.
(A larger cartridge is not always better-Larger cartridges will move you off your target in recoil more than smaller ones which takes away precious time. You get to choose which one you think will work for you.)
No weight limits.
No barrel restrictions.
No sighter period.

There will be time limits on the the amount of time you have to engage targets.
You can switch out SP's when you want.

Shooting will be done from the prone position.

IF you use a portable table you (Friends can help) are required to move it from stage to stage.

There will NOT be a separate "Bench Class"-This is a field shoot, not a BR shoot.

When it comes to a competition, the ones who consistently place high are the ones who have figured out how to play the game, and still shoot good with what they have under pressure.

Since this is a field shooting game under time, you are going to be under more pressure to get your targets engaged than you would in a benchrest match.

Some systems work better prone than others.
Don't be a whiner if the set-up you use does not work as good/quickly/smoothly/accurately as other competitors.
Remember to put on your "big-boy pants" before you get here

Use this match to measure yourself and your skill set for what you are using, so you can become a better field shooter and hunter.
Above all, remember to have FUN!

Re: COMBO: Prairie Dog Shoot & Steel Field Shoot (NO Rifles)

WY-SHOT Info:
To give you guys an idea of how much steel I will have out there for you to shoot at
I have just over 30 steel targets for the steel shoot and I think Steve and Aaron are going to bring some as well. With 5 stages/shooting points this will give us easily 6-8 targets per stage.
I have 10 5" square targets, and 10 10" square targets that are brand new, plus what I already have.
WY-SHOT Shooting Time Formula
Timing scheme.
Here is the scheme we use to incorporate a time element into the match.
Each shooting position will have six to eight targets downrange.
Our current formula is to allow a total time ("par time") for the shooter to set up and engage all targets that is equal to four (4) seconds per 100 yards per target, totaled for all targets from that position, plus 60 seconds of preparation (setup) time.
For example, if a target is at 1,000 yards, that will add 40 seconds of shooting time; a target at 500 yards would add 20 seconds of shooting time.
If, for example, a shooting position had four targets at 1,000 yards (160 seconds) and five targets at 500 yards (100 seconds), plus the 60 seconds of prep time, that would allow a total of 320 seconds (5 minutes, 20 seconds) for a shooter to engage all targets from that shooting position.
Thus, when a shooter is given the start command for that shooting position, the clock will start, and the last shot must be fired before 320 seconds have elapsed.
Any shots fired (or not fired) after the time ends will count as missed targets.
No other penalty will be assessed for late shots, such as failure to engage.
The shooting time for each shooting position will be rounded up to the nearest half-minute and marked on the score sheets.
Starting position.
The shooter must begin standing two paces (about six feet) to the rear of his selected firing position.
The shooter may begin with eye and ear protection already in place.
The shooter's handgun must be empty of ammunition, bolt forward.
The SP must be held diagonally across the shooter's torso, at port arms.
If the SP is equipped with a bipod, the bipod must be in the folded, carry position.
The shooter may pre-set any required extension on the bipod, as long as it is folded (not deployed position).
If a scope has scope caps, they must be closed.
The shooter may not pre-position any gear at the shooting position, but must carry whatever the shooter needs to shoot from the start position to the shooting position (exception - you can throw a shooting mat down and then back up to the start position to start).
Upon start signal, the shooter may advance the two paces to the shooting position, set up, and engage appropriate targets downrange.
Late shots. Shots fired after the par time expiration may not score as hits, and any targets not engaged during the par time score as misses.
Clear Specialty Pistol at line.
Upon completion of the firing from a shooting position, the shooter must, with SP muzzle downrange, demonstrate to the Range Officer that the handgun is free of ammunition, both magazine and chamber, and then close the bolt and snap the trigger on an empty chamber.
Detachable magazines must be removed.
