I will say yes. My rationale follows that of allowing peep sights and that you indicate on your target that you’re using fiber optic sights. I’ll track it. Who knows, maybe we’ll get enough interest to open another class.A question for future shoots, since I doubt I'll make this one. The only muzzleloader I have is a Traditions Deerhunter, with fibreglass inserts. That okay for "iron" sights?

I shot the target after choosing and posting it as the June target. After shooting it i thought I should change the scoring to be like golf - low score wins. Don't be discouraged, go shoot the bears!WOW -- bottom of the heap. I guess I thought the lowest score would be on top!!!!! LOL At least I hit the paper. Thanks for running and scoring the contest Marc -- much appreciated..
You can't get struck by lightning unless you get in the storm. Good honest shooting.I took a trip to one of my shootin spots yesterday to take a shot at this months target. I've got to say, it's shooting like I did yesterday that makes me glad I'm not eligible to enter the monthly shoot. I took 3 practice/fouling shots before posting the 5 Bullseye target. They were pretty good so I felt I would do well so I posted up and went to shootin. When all said and done I scored a -2, Yep, negative 2!
I've Attached my target for all to see and to say, don't be bashful... go shoot, have fun and send in your finished product. I doubt it'll be worse than mine.
I was shooting a CVA .45 Kentucky caplock with 1:66 twist that I purchased and refurbished. It was a very poorly put together kit gun when I got it. It looks a little better now. On a good day she's a pretty good shooter but you wouldn't know it by this target.
I was shooting .445 balls, .015 wet lubed patch over 45 grains of Goex 3f. I did make the mistake of posting the target on a white background backer board.
I would suggest posting these monthly targets on a dark target board.
