What is Silhouette shooting?

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

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

Chicks: 20 yards

Pigs: 30 yards

Turkeys: 36 yards

Rams: 45 yards

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!
