    Sportsman's Challenge will be holding small game shoots at Miller Ranch in Sprague, WA.
    Dec 14th
    25th of January
    22nd of March
    all of these are Saturdays and will provide multiple chances for guys to get out and keep up with your marksmanship especially in the elements that most of us predator hunters find ourselvs in every year.

    Generally these shoots consist of ranges from 100-600 or so yards.
    There will be a shorter as well as a longer course. We kick off the shooting about 8a.m. and finish when we finish. The cost is 10$ for your first rifle and 5$ for each after, so you could bring a couple rifles and compete with each while finding drops, testing loads or just keeping up with your top rifles.

    you can read more about how the shoots are ran and scored at Sportsman's Challenge - Home

    hope to see you there,
    caleb

    calib, do you think my 6.5 SS would be OK? I'm shooting a Berger 140 at 3200 fps.

    Calib;

    You made a comment on that rifle of "good looking rig" in which I whole-heartily agree with..

    I have look on the forum for the last hour, trying to get back there and read some more about what was done to create that fine rifle??

    Could you please point me in that direction?? I want to build one almost like that one, but I do not care for Weatherby and I would like to go to some thing else such as remington, ruger, or savage or some ting that you may have thought of??

    Thanks for your help

    Knapper

    This past Saturday the 25th of January we had one of the greatest turnouts yet with 44 shooters and a total of over 50 people. We had people from the coast, Orofino, Colville as well as many more places around the NW. We had shooters as young as 11 up to well lets say well experienced. The day was cold with a slight breeze that lasted most of the day keeping most of us gathered up around a fire pit or some of the heaters that were also brought out by participants trying to keep their trigger fingers moving. We had 6 youth who came to better their skills with the top three being Tyler Carlock(1st), Connor Pellisier(2nd) and Brady Webley(3rd) , then we had the adults that where lead by Nick Gadarzi(1st), Dan Huber(2nd) and Randy Munn. Below you can find the total results with times, cartridges and placing. If there is blanks in the spread sheet nothing was recorded on the score card.

    I want to thank everyone who showed up to battle the weather as well as the great shooters to have a good time and gain some more experience and hope we see you guys at future events.

    March 22nd will be the last small game shoot for the winter/spring portion of our season. There will be the big sportsmans challenge shoot that will be held may 3rd that will have small game targets as well as the big game.

    Hoping the weather is good for the small game shoot and we anticipate to see a decent amount of folks showing up to this one. The big horn show will be going at the fairgrounds the same weekend so after the shoot you could head up there and see whats new.
