    Turkey Day target

    Your target for this shoot is a Turkey silhouette, with 3 tiny bullseye targets in the right upper and both lower corners respectively.

    Find your Target here:

    http://accurateshooter.net/Blog/turkeytarg1401.pdf

    Rules:

    Scoring will be as follows:

    Shoot 5 shots at the target location of choice, misses count.

    The shooting distance for this contest is 25 yards.

    Your score is as listed on the target.

    No do-over’s.

    Only registered forum members may participate.

    Only traditional, open iron sighted muzzle loading firearms (NO Cannons). Percussion or flintlock ignition. Cap and Ball revolvers are OK.

    Single patched round ball only. No restrictions on caliber. (a patchless ball may be used if so desired)

    Shots will be taken off-hand at the stated distance. Standing or seated is allowed, elbows unsupported by anything other than the shooters torso. In the event that a member is not physically able to hold his rifle up unsupported, a "prop-rod" that is supported only by the shooters torso, no part of which prop-rod may touch the ground, may be used to hold up the fore-end of the rifle.

    Only original targets will be accepted. No copies, faxes, scans, etc.

    The center of the shot and the placement on the target will be determined by the judge.

    Judges decisions are final.

    Each contestant's score will be posted at the end of the contest.

    Your member screen name must be written on your targets.

    Mail your target postmarked by November 30th 2018 to:

    To clarify the rules for this one, is it OK to shoot the large center bullseye? The little ones don't show up at 25 yards for me.

    Yup! absolutely! Also, I see that I didn't actually clarify range. This is a 25 yard target so shots taken at 25 yard please. Zonie, or other Mod; if you can edit my original post to add that please do.

    This is any open sighted muzzleloading firearm. percussion revolvers included. So as long as your rifle is open sight as indicated in the rules, a rifle is good. Just remember, off hand no bracing the rifle with anything other than your body.

    My target is in the mail. Shot a fairly nice group for me offhand. There are 5 holes but two are almost in the same hole. Have to look close. :D Unfortunately an inch or two to the left. Need to adjust that sight. :(

    Shot mine yesterday as well, Dave. And surprise! surprise! I was able to actually see and hit that target. Although I did OK, I think I need to consider wiping the bore after every shot for accuracy's sake as I was getting a few hits where I didn't want them to be.

    I am looking forward to shooting this one, but need some rain first, half way through Nov. and still no rain. I do not need a Calif. fire name after me.
