What is Silhouette shooting?

\r\n

This is a competition of 40 shots taken standing only, held on Thursday evenings.

\r\n

Racks of five targets, usually silhouettes of chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams are set out as follows:

\r\n

Chicks: 20 yards

\r\n

Pigs: 30 yards

\r\n

Turkeys: 36 yards

\r\n

Rams: 45 yards

\r\n

This is a very challenging but fun competition which provides plenty of standing practice.
So if you’re interested pop along on a Thursday evening at about 7pm to see how it’s done and even give it a go!
