    Buffalo hunting. You are a buffalo hunter venturing out onto the Great Plains.

    Find your target here:

    Full color

    https://www.targets.ws/shooting-targets/buffalo-target-1.pdf

    Silhouette:

    https://www.targets.ws/shooting-targets/buffalo-target-2.pdf

    Take 5 shots, each hit that is completely inside the animal counts as one. Hits that break the line on the aiming dot count as two.

    Fire 5 shots only, misses count!

    The shooting distance for this contest is 25 yards.

    No do-over’s.

    Only registered forum members may participate.

    Only traditional, open iron sighted muzzle loading firearms; peeps are allowed under the condition you mark your target so I know you used a peep. (I'm tracking it)(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, scan, etc.

    *New Rule!!**
    Overseas participants may scan and e-mail me the target at
    Adui0013@gmail.com. As long as I can CLEARLY make the target out I'll accept it.** (I recommend using a dark backing paper when you scan / copy it if possible so that the holes show clearly)
    **Currently this will only apply to target shoots that I don't have to measure with a ruler. Unfortunately I do not have a printer to print them out with.**



    Mutilated targets, or targets with more than 5 holes will be disqualified.

    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.

    As stated above if you use peep sights that too must be marked on your target. (Pretty Please!)

    Mail your target postmarked by September 30th 2019 to:

    Terry Stephens
    251 S 90th St

    Mesa AZ 85208

    Got mine shot and will be in the mail today. Felt awesome to make some good smoke again. I did pretty good for having not shot in a few months. Now I need to take the boy out and chase some squirrels.

    Mine is in the mail. If it wasn't a bull, one would have been a total miss. Someone has to be last.
