Re: Do You Shoot Rifle Competition?

Badaboom,

You are right. I practice at the range all I can. The range is forty five miles one way
and the cost of fuel is a factor. One and a half hours plus round trip.
I didn't draw a Rifle Elk tag this year, so I will be bow hunting elk.

I was lucky enough to draw a rifle Buck Deer tag. That will be long range
hunting.

I use a range finder and a mil-dot system to judge distance and
have an inclinometer for long range ups and downs.
I would use Kentucky windage, but the wind is always changing direction two
or three times between me and the target.

    Only competitive with myself . Getting better, but not good enough to go in formal competitions!

    theo98,

    At 81 years, I no longer can assume the prone position. The stomach is in
    the way, the rocking motion does not make for competitive shooting, neither
    does the act of holding one's head up to see through the sights for the required
    amount of time to fire a shot accurately. So I normally use the sitting position to
    do my shooting. A shooting aid such as a bipod, tripod, or a tree limb seems to
    work well for most hunting shots.

    If the targets were shooting back, I could understand wanting to shoot from a
    a prone position.

    I agree with you, I mostly compete with myself these days.
